Palm Paddle Bag – First Look

Earlier this week we received a 2.0m Palm Paddle Bag for review.

Palm Paddle Bag - First Look

Although paddle bags are really useful for keeping paddles safe when there being slung around on/off long haul flights, my prime use for them is actually to protect my car when the paddles are being carried inside.

Soca Katarakt In The Prijon Curve 3.5 Creek

I am a huge fan of the Prijon kayaks of old. I have owned and paddled many from the T-Canyon to the Delirium. So it’s great to see the whitewater range of Prijon kayaks expanding with the release of the Prijon Curve 3.5 Creek.

Sweet Protection Sabrosa Dry Top – First Look

The Sweet Protection Sabrosa Dry Top has landed here at Unsponsored HQ. This may well be an exclusive, it’s not even on the Sweet Protection website yet. It would be fair to say that I have been waiting sometime for Sweet to put a short sleeved paddle top into production and it’s finally here.

Sweet Protection Sabrosa Dry Top - First Look

Soul Waterman Booty Call And Gonzo – Review

Andreas Kasprzok gives us the lowdown, a review of sorts of the Soul Waterman Booty Call (in yellow) and Gonzo (in orange).

The Soul range of kayaks are available with two different weights of plastic. The yellow is the light layup, and orange “normal” strength. The Booty Call has been all over the SE by now and, while somewhat beat up, still hasn’t cracked. It seems like the light layup is fine for most everyone except Green Narrows regulars, Cali slides, etc.
