Winter is all about strong wind & colds days, this is exactly what the Blizzard jacket is made for. This 3 layers vest is light, waterproof & windproof. The two side-pockets let the spreader bar go through to be used when kiting. That jacket is also perfect for kite instructors. The Blizzard jacket creates a cocoon around the Kiter that allows a far better resistance to cold even with a standard wetsuit. Whether you are on the water or debriefing the session on the beach, the Blizzard will keep you warm & comfy.
