Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I like the idea of having a mesh bag that I can drop in my cockpit to save room on long drives to/from the river.
Sadly this bag (sizeM/L) is not a secure fit in my cockpit (Jackson Super Star 36"x 19"). I can just squeeze it on but it takes a lot of pulling and stretching, and it feels like it's going to pop off any moment.
Lacking the strap that many cockpit covers have to secure the load around the boat, I wouldn't feel safe leaving this on a boat on the roof.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I really like the price, simplicity and fit (skinny fit!) of this jacket. Sadly though the front zip is just not waterproof, and in heavy rain the front of my underlayers are soaked. There is no protective flap over the zip as it supposedly a waterproof one, (at least it looks like one).


Might work if you hunched over (as on a bike) or in light rain.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was worried that this wouldn't fit, but by removing all the interchangeable pads it just fits my 23.5" head. It's a tight squeeze getting it on or off, unless I slacken the back band (Occipital Lock).
Far better fit than my previous WRSI full face - that got returned when the buckle broke mid roll!

Ordered the 34" * 32" which is my size, but the actual size of garment is 36" * 33" hence I look like a teenager wearing his dad's suit.

Return costs $7 and the price of garment has gone up by $11.50 so no longer a bargain :(

Otherwise I like the garment - color and material give them a unique look. Not so sure about the (discreet) embroidered logo on the back pocket.
