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. What makes this jacket stand out is that it is also made at Nookie’s HQ here in the UK.
As you would expect with a premium design the Nookie Turbo Jacket has double seals to create a full dry jacket. This includes twin neck and wrists with high quality latex inners, and neoprene outer seals for durability and an extra dry seal.Continue reading

The Saco dry top in conjunction with a number of other other new designs is set to change this.
