The Journey is a real lightweight. No, really. It weighs less than a pound. Totally open sides and soft shoulder straps with reflective tape make the Journey a cool choice for hot days and hot bodies. But don't be fooled that this is just some dumb entry level jacket. 3D contoured front foam panels provide outstanding fit: surprisingly sophisticated for a lightweight. PVC-free eco-foam and 300D Polyester shell. Perfect for SUP, sailing, and quiet water canoeing and kayaking. USCG: Type III, Min buoyancy: 15 lbs. 8 oz.
