NRS Riptide


The NRS Riptide is a superb jacket for those canoeing or kayaking paddlers who want more from a spray cag without going over the top. The Riptide has a fully articulated design and is made from a super lightweight 2.5 layer HyproTex material so when you are wearing it you really have full range of movement and don't feel that you're wearing a waterproof paddling jacket at all.

The NRS Riptide still has all the features you could want from a touring jacket with an adjustable storm hood, half neck zip outer collar with a stretchy urethane inner that gives you protection but can still be opened for ventilation when warm. At the wrists you find comfortable volcano-style neoprene cuffs and a twin waist with velcro adjustments for use with spraydeck or twin waist trousers for added protection.

Overall the NRS Riptide looks great, feels great and provides excellent protection to keep you paddling happier for longer.
