Jackson Fun – Launch

It looks like the river running, fun to paddle/play kayak is back. Everyone doesn’t need a creeker all of the the time.

Sweet Protection Jailbreak Jacket

This is somewhat of a different product from Sweet. Sweet are well known for their great kayak and snow sports kit but the Jailbreak jacket offers something a little different. The Jailbreak is essentially a light weight mountain jacket suitable for a range of activities.

Sweet Protection Jailbreak Jacket

It’s not a jacket for on water use. I have so far used the Jailbreak while I have been mountain biking, climbing and hill walking. Think of the Jailbreak as an Arcteryx Beta LT and you would be along the right lines.
