The Reed Chillcheater Aquatherm Touring Cag is a uniquely soft and comfortable cag. It is constructed from Aquatherm, Reed ChillCheater's flexible, polyurethane fabric, which provides a thermal barrier similar to a traditional wetsuit, but is lighter, more flexible and is easier to get on and off. The smooth outer surface sheds water quickly, minimising the effects of windchill. One of the best things about this fabric is that it typically does not give an allergic response that some people have with neoprene or latex.
There is a snap on / off hood with a stiffened brim with adjustable straps at the sides to get a snug fit. Reflective strips are on the hood and cuffs for added safety. All seams are stitched and taped for strength and water tightness. The body has an adjustable twin waist seal for fixing over your spray deck and dry pants.
The Aquatherm Touring Cag is not intended as a dry cag as it has a front baffle neck seal, which, with its wider neck gape when undone, allows for good ventilation on long journeys and warmer conditions. The neck can be closed with either a press-stud (popper) or zip. Super stretch aquatherm dry seals on the cuff and neck offer a comfortable fit over a broader area of your wrist and neck, giving a comfortable seal without the sometimes tighter pressure associated with traditional latex seals. The seals are tough and durable and non splitting.
This is a very comfortable cag for day trips and expeditions - we recommend the zipper neck and the yellow colour for high visibility.
