What words would you use to describe Wales in November? If cold is amongst your top 5 then the new BA from extra sport is for you! Featuring a fleece lined neoprene handwarmer pocket!! A fantastic WW free ride vest the Guage steps up with Ballistic Nylon on the front (1000 Denier!) and a ring system upfront that keeps steady pressure on both shoulders no matter what direction your arms are moving and you can reach so much farther with nothing getting in the way or limiting your movement. This makes this my play boating and Free ride vest of choice. The lack of a chest harness or sealable pocket keeps the pro-creeker head of the line up for the bigger stuff but the Guage certainly has it on freedom of movement and general comfort.
I gave the vest a thorough test last weekend at the Dee tour and was really impressed. The hand warmer pocket seamed to impress not only me but the guys I was paddling with, though the most exiting feature for me was the improved shoulder strap system, although it doesn’t move much it certainly makes a Huge difference when compared to any other BA I’ve used.
