Infos & Characteristics
Winter is all about strong wind & colds days, this is exactly what the Blizzard jacket is made for. This 3 layers vest is light, waterproof & windproof. The two side-pockets let the spreaderbar go through to be used when Kiting.
Warning: Do not wear this jacket in surf conditions, it might compromise your movements in case of wipeout in the waves.
The Blizzard jacket creates a cocoon around the Kiter that allows a far better resistance to cold even with a standard wetsuit. Whether you are on the water or debriefing the session on the beach, the Blizzard will keep you warm & comfy.
Like a wetsuit, it is important to take care of it: Rinse it with fresh water after each session, keep it stored on a hanger.
The windchill lowers your body temperature because of the passing-flow of lower-temperature air, it is emphasized if the body’s wet. That’s why it’s important to protect from the gusts, to avoid your wet wetsuit keeping you cold.
The Blizzard jacket’s 3 laminated layers are working like a hedge to cut the wind and protect the body from cold gusts.
The two-side pockets let the spreaderbar go through to be used when Kiting.
The pores in our internal membrane are not big enough to let water drops pass through. Being waterproof, the vest protects the rider from the windchill effect.
It also stays light as it doesn’t absorb water.
YKK 8mm Plastic zipper
It is useless to design a great jacket if the zipper breaks, gets stuck or corrodes. We only use robust 8mm YKK zippers made of nylon (anti-corrosion).
Thanks to its micro-perforated internal membrane, the jacket evacuates moisture from your body when you’re active on land.
It makes it a good tool for any sport like SUPing, biking, or even for a walk in the street.
