Utilized primarily in the construction of wetsuits, neoprene is an insulating and nearly impermeable material positioned to keep watermen and surfers alike relatively toasty in the unforgiving wind-whipped and rain-driven climate in and around our earth’s oceans. Now, that same technology has made its way into the realm or rainy day apparel.
Enter the Ocean Jacket from 22 Degrees – a hooded front zip neoprene rain jacket designed to keep you warm and dry while out in the ocean or caught in the rain on a chilly day. Now a staple among underwater photographers, marine biologists and more, the Ocean Jacket is the brainchild of renowned divemaster Rick Miskiv while on assignment in Peru. Notable features include a YKK Aquaguard water resistant zipper, two large interior pouch pockets, drawstrings for the hood and waist, and a 2.5 mm smooth skin neoprene construction. Each Ocean Jacket is also constructed from recycled neoprene from old tires to help reduce the jacket’s CO2 footprint – pleasing Mother Nature in the process.
