Sizing for the NRS Payette Shorty Paddle Jacket
The Payette is a great paddle top at a great price. This has been my first season as a whitewater paddler, and this is my first paddle top. I have found it to fit well, allowing me good range of motion while paddling in the local whitewater park. It does a good job of keeping me dry even when I have to complete a combat roll or two, or three, or four. I am very happy with the performance, appearance and price. I may even get another one in the spring in another color.
This jacket exactly meets my need for a lightweight short sleeve paddling jacket. It is well-constructed and generally comfortable. My only comment is that the seals on the ends of the short sleeves are very tight around my biceps--and I have only average-size biceps for an athletic guy of my size (6'4" tall; 205 lbs.) I wish the seals were a little more forgiving in the stretchability department. Sometimes I worry that my lower arms are not getting enough blood supply! Otherwise, this is a great value--good, stylish jacket for a very reasonable price. I'd go for it if you're looking for a lightweight paddling jacket.

My daughter and I decided on the shorty jacket and is the right protection for most of our kayaking. I chose the large size and it fits well for a 40 short male. My daughter was also between sizes and chose the larger and it is right for her. Good quality and good value.
