We now have all our new Palmtouring cags in stock including the Aegean, Oceana, Thalassa and Alaska at Up and Under Watersports.
The Aegean is a great all round touring cag. It has a single tunnel waist tube making it perfect for sit on top or open boat use where a spray deck is not worn as it allows easy venting and temperature regulation. The neoprene cuffs with adjustable outers keep most the water at bay but are more comfortable than latex. Worth considering for fishing, gentle touring and sit on top use when the weather gets bad!
The Oceana is probably going to be the most popular of the new touring shells and will keep out all but the worst weather. It features xp 2.5 layer fabric and is fully waterproof yet breathable. The latex cuffs keep out water when paddling through waves and the clever twin zip closure system on the neck allows either a good seal or excellent venting. The fleece neck collar provides comfort and warmth when paddling in cold conditions and the fully adjustable storm hood gives great protection from the elements. This cag has a twin tunnel waist tube for use with a spray deck to help keep you dry.
The Thalassa is the same spec as the Oceana but designed to work better with the female form. It also comes in a light blue and red colour, which really stand out.
The Alaska is Palm’s flag ship expedition cag. It is heavier than the Oceana and made of xp 3layer fabric to really keep the cold at bay. This is the only choice for serious expedition paddling in very cold locations but is also a good option for general winter touring if you know you get cold easily. Apart from the heavy-duty fabric it has the same features of the Oceana and Thallasa but comes with a removable hand warmer/thermal neck scarf to really protect from freezing winds.
