Reed

 

Reed Chillcheater is here. The world's most advanced & proven sea kayaking expedition wear, is now available in Australia at the same prices you'd be paying if you resided in the UK. Reed Chill Cheater have developed Aquatherm, the revolutionary new material which provides insulation from wind and wet and gives protection from UV rays.
A Reed Chill Cheater provides a thermal barrier similar to a traditional wetsuit, but is lighter, more flexible and is easier to get on and off. The smooth polyurethane outer surface sheds water incredibly quickly minimising the effects of windchill. The matt black finish also maximises heat absorption from the sun and coupled with body heat maintains a thin layer of warm water between your skin and the fabrics. Reed Chillcheater gear is designed by sea kayakers, for sea kayakers and has been used on expeditions the world over, from the sub Antarctic to the North Sea.

Reed Chillcheater Aquatherm Touring Cag

(Aquatherm and Super Stretch Aquatherm Fabrics). A uniquely soft and comfortable cag that can be worn next to the skin or over thermals in the cold.
This cag makes use of our new front baffle neck seal, which, with its wider neck gape when undone, allows for good ventilation on prolonged journeys. Super stretch Aquatherm dry seals on the cuff and neck offers a more comfortable fit over a broader area of your wrist and neck, giving a comfortable seal without the cruder pressure associated with traditional latex seals (great for folks who may have grumbling problems with tendonitis.) The seals are tough and durable and non splitting, and are not a “write off” should you puncture them. There is a snap on / off hood with a wired brim with adjustable straps at the sides to get a snug fit for when the weather closes in. Reflective strips are on the hood, and cuffs for added safety. All seams are stitched and tape for strength and water tightness. The body has an adjustable twin waist seal fixing securely over your deck.

Reed Transpire Fleece Top

Incredibly comfortable fleece on the inside. High lycra content. Worn as a base layer, the top is ideal under a dry or membrane suit for diving, or under a cag for kayaking. The Transpire fleece is made from an anti-snag fabric, featuring yarns coated with durable, water-repellant coating, which makes the garment warm wet or dry. Terrific fast wicking performance, with a fleeces weight to warmth ratio which leads it’s class.
Fitting should be skin tight (allowing the fabric to be in contact with the skin at all points) to maximise sweat wicking potential. The high neck is easily rolled down under a dry seal. The Transpire fleece range was the chosen base layer for the Royal Marines Summit Expedition to Mount Everest in March 2003 and the Army Everest team in 2006.

Mitchell Blades Bombora Paddle

The Bombora has a strong but not exhausting catch, a smooth feel through the stroke & with the shortened face a quick & easy exit. It is a tremendously strong paddle for technical paddling & strokes, yet doesn’t need a huge amount of grunt to cruise distance. We are noticing sea kayakers skills rising around the country. The days of the thin bladed ‘touring’ paddle with a long 220cm+ shaft are limited as paddlers are becoming technically more proficient and seeing the benefits of a higher angled stroke to their overall cruising & playing. The Bombora is our attempt to accommodate this into a cutting edge design, made to make the kind of paddling we do more enjoyable & rewarding.

Note, when you are placing your order, please indicate you preferred paddle length range.

Jeff Allen Throw Tow

This rescue system has been designed to go hand in hand with the 'Maybe a casualty, never a victim' methods and strategies taught for rescues and can be used for several different functions, as a tow system it can be set to variable lengths, depending on the diameter of line the bag can accommodate up to 25 meters of line but comes as standard with 15 meters .The system can be reversed so when used as a throw system can be projected into a rescue from the seat of your kayak, yet still be used as a tow system, having a strong clip at both ends of the system, means that once projected in to the incident, the casualty can, if able, clip it into their kayak or hold on, to be pulled clear of any danger. The belt of the tow system is designed so that the anchor point of the bag can swivel around the paddler's waist by the attachment of a stainless steel 'D' ring onto the  bridle of the belt. This allows the tow line to run freely when changing direction and also allows you to carry the tow line to the front of you when sitting in the kayak, which is handy if you anticipate needing it in the 'Throw' function whilst negotiating rock gardens. Click HERE to see the inventor of the system, sea kayaking expeditioner & instructor Jeff Allen, explaining the Throw Tow This is a viable rescue system for all paddlers, including surf ski, OC1, & sea kayaking, and can deck mounted. Here at EK we have been testing the system now for almost a year & consider it to be the most comprehensive tow set up we have come across for rough water rescue.

North Water Surfski/OC1 Leg Leash

In our opinion, the leg leash is an even more important safety item than a PFD In a lightweight ski or OC1, a capsize in any sort of wind can mean paddler & vessel are very soon parted, and this unobtrusive leash ensures this can't happen. The coiled leash will extend from 60cm to over a metre & a half, and is swivelled at both ends so as not to become tangled. You can read North Water's specs on this leash HERE.

NRS® Paddle Float

a well thought out & practical version of this often misunderstood & misused piece of safety kit. At EK we think the paddle float is a terrible first safety rescue option, but an excellent plan C. Your roll fails, your re-enter & roll fails, go to the paddle float re-entry, it's likely to be your final & best option. Practice with the float if you carry it, and whatever you do, don't rely on it as your primary self rescue technique This float has a dual air chamber as a back up if one fails, a sizeable paddle sleeve, reflective tape all housed in a durable nylon outer shell with a webbing grab loop. We still think you're better off learning to roll properly, but this is a must carry item for the solo paddler.
