The dog days of summer are upon you and your paddling prowress increased exponentially over the past year. For a lightweight whitewater top that is more than entry-level but a bit less than expert-level, reach for the Kokatat Men's Tropos Re-Action Jacket. Waterproof and breathable, this pullover splash top helps keep you comfortable and dry whether you're navigating some class III froth or cutting a straight line across the flats. Tropos fabric consists of two layers of nylon treated them a micro-porous polyurethane coating. Paddling-produced moisture vapor is allowed to escape so your arms don't get sticky with sweat, while rapids-raised spray gets stopped in its tracks. Latex wrist gaskets prevent water from inching up your arms, and Lycra over-cuffs give your gaskets extra protection from wear, water, and sun. The neoprene cinch collar adjusts with a single tug to minimize the amount of water that drips down your back on the off chance you get dunked. Marry your spray skirt to the dual-adjustable outer skirt to curtail the accumulation of water in the cockpit. Tighten the inner tunnel against your tummy with the bungee drawcord. The competition cut means the Re-Action jacket moves with you, not against you, for easier paddling--no one said paddling against the current was simple or smart. Knowing you've other interests and aren't ready for a monogamous relationship with your kayak, Kokatat created this pullover, waterproof jacket so you can have a performance jacket without breaking the bank.
