Gear Question

which has a lower profile-wedge-E or brik?...

Posted on

which has a lower profile-wedge-E or brik? which is less thickly padded or are they more or less equal? which has more pockets & more usable pocket? which is most comfortable for touring & bay kayaking & small trimaran sailing? (probably would only be used for limited or no whitewater)

Responded on

Their padding is the same thickness, but the brik does not come up as high on the chest as the wedge does, giving it a slightly lower profile. Both only have one small-ish pocket which can only hold low-profile items, as the mesh is stretched tight against the pfd (see comment below). Comfort level would best be determined by yourself, as these jackets are very similar. I have the wedge, which I love. Boyfriend has the brik, but only because they were out of the wedge in his size. He loves his brik now and says he would be happy with either jacket.
