New to paddling but this top is great!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Did a bunch of rolls and even swam twice but stayed quite dry none the less. I wear a 2-3mm full wet suit underneath for extra warmth to handle the swims and give my skin a bit of protection but this jacket is really comfortable and added a good deal of warmth to my paddle on a fall day (American River in Cali so not thaaat cold). Pretty easy to get on and off, good mobility and didn't notice it at all while paddling.
