Objects of Desire

From the Kokatat website - "Our GORE-TEX® TecTOUR Anorak with its integral wide-billed, multi-adjustable storm hood provides exceptional protection and comfort in the face of changing weather and water conditions. This is the top of the line touring shell for paddlers wanting the most technical features and fabric in a paddling jacket. The mid-length front zip, latex wrist gaskets, zippered bellows pockets with key lanyard and reflective tape on wrists and hood make it the ultimate piece of clothing for sea paddlers. Dual-adjustable outer skirt incorporates “hook & loop” compatible neoprene" and the Ronin PFD is "a low-profile PFD that offers full spinal protection, thermal-molded padded shoulders, reflective accents and a large duplex pocket performs as well on the play wave as it does in the surf zone. Made with GAIA® PVC-free foam.

Many thanks to Kokatat for dispatching these items to me. The Ronin has already seen action on the water and the TecTOUR will be going on expedition with me soon.

I will endeavour to write a review of each item in the coming weeks.
