NRS Orion Cag


If you need the highest level of protection from bad conditions, sea spray and rain then take a look at the NRS Orion paddling top. Designed for expeditions and longer days on the water the Orion has a Glideskin neoprene neck gasket to keep water out whilst still remaining more comfortable than latex for most. When the rain comes in just retreat into the snug articulated and fully adjustable hood for even more protection from the elements. The hood can be left open  for fairer weather or fully zipped up for complete storm conditions - the perforated face shield will still allow plenty of airflow and its lined with fleece for warmth.


The sleeves have full latex gaskets for full waterproof protection and of course its a twin waist with a Hypotex skirt to keep your boat dry. The main body of the cag is made from proprietary 4 layer Eclipse fabric with a Nanosphere DWR finish to bead off excess water and thus help with breathability.


There are two zipped pockets on the sleeves for easy access when wearing a PFD and a zipped ‘kangaroo’ style handwarmer pocket for larger items. Finally the jacket has reflective tape and graphics to ensure you are seen in low light. The NRS Orion is a serious piece of kit for the coastal paddler.
