General Purpose Canoeing & Kayaking Cags

General purpose cags are normally the entry level of the range and are perfect for summer paddling on Sit on Top Kayaks, Touring kayaks and sea kayaks. This type of jacket normally features adjustable velcro wrist and neck seals and are designed to keep the wind and spray off you, however if you do capsize water will get in quickly. A great advantage of this type of jacket is that they are easy to get on and off quickly.

The Adjustable neck seals that these cags normally feature are more comfortable than latex or neoprene but not as dry if you do end up capsizing, whilst latex wrist seals stop any water shooting up your arms whilst paddling.

Semi Dry Cags

Semi Dry cags are designed for whitewater kayaking and surfing but are also suitable for general purpose paddling, touring and sea kayaking use all year round. Semi dry cags feature a neoprene neck seal which is more comfortable and not as tight around your neck as a latex seal, the downside of a neoprene seal is that they are not normally as dry as latex so you may experience some water ingress if you capsize. These cags will generally feature a twin waist seal (for combining with a spraydeck) and latex wrist seals.

Dry Cags

Dry Cags are the warmest and driest type of jacket on the market, they are most popular for Whitewater kayaking and Surfing but can be used for any paddling discipline during even the coldest months. Full latex seals on the neck and wrist are the driest seals available and offer the best chance of staying warm and dry on the water. When combined with a good pair of dry trousers these can make a good alternative to a drysuit. Not sure what features you're looking for check out our Cags Buyers Guide.

What features should I look for in a Cag or Jacket?

Adjustable Neck & Wrist Seals

This type of seal is the easiest to get on and off; velcro closures mean that the seals are easily adjustable so when its cold you can fasten them tight to stop water ingressing but when its warmer you can open them up to vent hot air and keep you cool. The downside of this type of seal is that even when done up tight, water can still get in if you end up capsizing.

Latex Wrist & Neck Seals

Latex seals are the driest type you will find on a cag, their tight fit means that the seal created is very good and even when submerged little- no water will get in through them. Because of the tight fitting nature of the material, cags with latex seals are generally harder to get on and off and can cause irritation to the skin (especially neck seals when used in salt water). It is important to remember that latex seals, being made of rubber, are perishable and as such not covered under warranty- with care they will last many years but even if the seal does perish, they can be replaced cheaply.

Neoprene Wrist & Neck Seals

Neoprene seals vary in performance depending on model and manufacturer but generally they are easier to get on and off and more comfortable than latex seals, the downside of this is that they are not quite as dry as latex. Neoprene seals do not perish in the same way that latex can, but still rely on a tight fit to keep water out so are not adjustable and cannot be opened to vent heat. Neoprene seals are parcitularly popular for those using their jackets in salt water as it does not chafe as badly, and is more comfortable when worn for a whole days paddling.

Twin Waist

Twin waist seals are normally found on Dry, Semi Dry and more top end Sea Kayaking Cags. They are designed to be used with a spraydeck and when layered correctly (with the spraydeck waist tube between the two layers) they will reduce the amount of water which can enter the boat for the waist of the spraydeck.

Spray Hood

Sprayhoods are standard features on most of the Sea Kayaking kackets and are a great way to keep cosy and warm on the really cold and windy days. Some stow away, some are fixed as standard and on some models they are removeable; generally though they will have volume adjustment so you can get the best fit for your head size.
