New for 2021 from Jackson is the Bees Knees Thigh Hook System. It’s a tool free light weight addition to your Jackson Kayak outfitting that gives extra support to your knees.
The Bees Knees gives all Jackson Kayaks whitewater boats a more secure knee fit for a better feel. This addresses the #1 request for improvement from our customers, and follows the JK way of valuing innovation and simplicity. They require no tools to adjust, and are comfortable and lightweight. These should work with every whitewater boat we’ve ever made (with the exception of kids’ boats).
We have a pair of SurfEars 3.0 Ear Plugs in for review at Unsponsored for quite some time now so it is time for a full long term review report.
For any water user, and particularly those where the water/air temperature is cold, looking after your ears is important. Regular exposure to cold water/air can encourage the inner ear to protect itself.
The Palm Zenith pants are designed to be combined with any dry or semi dry top to create a flexible system for year round use. I’ve been using these with the Palm Fuse and Zenith range of jackets.
Although a two piece combination will find it hard to be beat a drysuit I have used a number of two piece systems in the past that have been super dry. The big advantage is that you can mix and match tops and bottoms to create a system that is best matched for the conditions you are going out in.
The Nookie Turbo jacket is designed to be a performance led premium whitewater kayak jacket utilising the same high quality materials as the Nookie Charger Drysuit. This thing is tough with double sals (neoprene outer/latex inner) on the neck and arms. What makes this jacket stand out is that it is also made at Nookie’s HQ here in the UK. There are very few UK based paddling firms that actually still make their gear in the UK. Top marks to Nookie.
