Bomber Gear Palguin Drysuit

When Polartec’s Neoshell waterproof laminate appeared in rain and ski wear a couple years ago, disciples raved about the fabric’s incredible breathability and almost weightless feel. Bomber Gear is the first paddlesports brand to embrace the material, and the Palguin drysuit delivers with sweat-free performance and a supple, stretchy fit that moves with you for all-day comfort. Lead designer Martin Davis-Skjöth didn’t stop there: the Palguin’s inseam entry zipper—up one leg and down the other—doubles as a unisex relief zip and further reduces bulk beneath your PFD. Best for: Touring, fitness and rough water paddling.
