Kayak Fishing Buoyancy Aid or Kayak Touring Buoyancy Aid

The PalmHydro is the updated Hydro Adventure, with the slight redesign giving better functionality to Palms classic fishing touring and canoeing bouyancy jacket.

The Hydro is a zip front buoyancy aid that features the Palm 3dwaist cut that has been designed to give the best possible fit available. This 3d cut will ensure that the 25mm base waist belt will have the full 25mm of contact with the torso, making sure that when the buoyancy aid is on and correctly secured with the tensioning straps, the PFD will  stay located in exactly the right place. The Hydro has a number of different tensioning points to obtain a good fit - The  25mm waist belt with dual tension straps just above that keep it secure and anchored below the chest. One of the best upgrades the the Hydro over the previous version is the new shoulder straps, which have increased range and allow the BA to follow the shape of the torso much more effectively.

Palm Equipment have packed the Hydro full of great features that include two large front pockets, both of which have a mesh panel on the side for drainage and also two internal anchor points for securing items such as a whistle or maybe a VHF radio.  The rear pocket has had it's size increased, it's perfect for the storage of a hydration system such as the Palm Hydration Bladder but can easily fit others. On each of the shoulders there is a some reflective detail that offers good visabilty in the event of a night time rescue.  The right hand chest has a Clip and lash tab - usful for the drinking tube of the aforementioned hydration system, or for securing other bits of gear.

The Palm Hydro is just one of many items that we carry in our range of sea and kayak touring items. There are several other buoyancy aids such as the Yak Tahu and Peak UK Adventure Vest. While protection from the elements such as wind and rain can be obtained by wearing a Sea and Touring Canoe Cag such as the Peak UK Adventure Single or maybe the Palm Agean. The selection of touring kayaks is vast, but it is always well worth looking at the Venture Islay 14 and this is ideally propelled by paddles such as the Werner Tybee.

February Staff Newsletter

February was a busy month in the shop. As well as a number of reps coming to see us, and a number of visits to make, we also attended the Run, Walk, Crawl Brecon to Cardiff Ultra, and hosted a climbing shoe demo with Tenaya at local bouldering wall Spot Climbing. We still managed to get out, and members of Team Up and Under could be found in many parts of the UK; including in the Brecon Beacons, the Lakes, South Downs, Scotland, as well as further afield in Chamonix and George L still in Thailand.
