New Typhoon bits.

Its usually a bit quiet for new products at this time of year. So its always nice to get somthing in. Typhoon have come up with a couple of nice touring and general purpose items which suit the season very well. Along with the cags they also have a very reasonably priced pfd and some great value snorkle sets. All absolutly perfect for this time of year.

The Mekong pfd sells at £34.95 and is perfect for all thsoe sit on top kayaks or just abit of old fashioned mucking about. Soft foam make it very comfy, two side adjusment straps to ensure a firm fit, a pocket in the front for your keys and ice cream money. We include thses pfds in some of our kayak packages.

The cream of the crop, the Typhoon Amur touring cag. A two layer touring cag for spring and summer use sea kayaking, touring and general paddling.
Its always good to have a nice light top you can keep stashed in your boat or under the deck lines to chuck on if the weather turns or is maybe a bit breezy when you set off.
The Amur has good firm sealing cuffs with plenty of velcro, a nice wide neoprene waist band for a dry seal, front pocket for keys and ice cream money (a recurring theme for A.S Staff).
We particularly like the fairly high collar with its soft fleecy mesh lining and pack away hood. The hood is a good size and will go over a hat and has a stiff peak (but not to stiff) with some high viz reflective taping. RRp £84.95.
This cag goes up against the Palm Greenland, Delta Pathfinder and Peak Tourlite Hoody and comes out pretty good against all of them.
Check one out instore or purchase online.

Surfs Up! Typhoon Bering sea semi dry top. Perfect for sit on top kayak surfing and the slightly wetter side of general purpose. You can even use this top for sailing or other watersports.
With very soft feeling neoprene neck and wrist seals the Bearing Sea will keep the worst of it out.
Not as dry as a latex seal cag or one with a twin waist its great for summer temperatures and paddling. The wide neo waist seal holds onto your leg wear well to stop it riding up and creates a a pretty good seal.
This would also be good for intro white water or centre use. RRP £79.95 Online here
