The Palm Vertigo has a simple neoprene neck gasket and twin waist making it an ideal first whitewater paddling jacket.
The Vertigo is excellent value for money and is made from a comfortable XP 2-layer fabric that is lightweight, waterproof and easy to pack away. This makes the Vertigo jacket suitable for canoeing as well as kayaking.
WHY DID WE PICK THIS JACKET FOR OUR KAYAK-KING SHOP AND SEA KAYAK ACADEMY CUSTOMERS?
We chose the Palm Vertigo jacket for our academy customers not only because they look good but because we feel they are the perfect entry-level jacket for someone getting into sea kayaking. The jackets have latex seals on the wrists which means your forearms won’t be soggy and damp all day, dramatically increasing your comfort and ability to focus. The neoprene neck offers a high level of dryness, albeit not as much as a latex seal, but is more comfortable over the course of a day than latex – especially in the salty sea environment.
Overall this is a professional-looking jacket that will, most importantly, keep you warm, dry and comfortable allowing you to have the best day possible on the sea.
