    I purchased this jacket in order to have something to keep the water out of the cockpit when learning how to roll. I knew that Paclite Goretex breathes well, and this jacket does that very well. I can wear it it hot weather comfortably - it it especially useful in the summer in California when the water is 50-55 degrees and the air can be twice that. I do get some water in down the back of the neck doing rolls - but it takes about 10 rolls before there's noticeable water in the cockpit, and more than 25 rolls before I'd need to pump out the water. I hardly even notice I'm wearing it, it is so comfortable. It functions just like I had hoped it would.

    I use this top in the dead of summer on all my local runs and have nothing but good things to say. Its even really dry for the type of neck and arms it has. If you live where its warm and love to paddle this is the hands down only way to go
