Chillcheater Touring Cag Gear Review

A review of the Reed Chillcheater Aquatherm Touring Cag from Adventure Kayak magazine.

With a unique, ventilating zippered neck and a removable hood that’s one of the best-fitting we’ve ever tested, we’d love the Touring Cag even if it wasn’t made from Reed’s remarkable Super Stretch Aquatherm fabric. Worn by the likes of Freya Hoffmeister and Batman (check out the Dark Knight’s tights in Batman Begins—Reed also works extensively with the film industry), this material uses a soft, polyester stretch knit bonded to an ultrathin polyurethane outer. The result is a light, shirt-like feel and fit that’s waterproof, thermally insulating and longwearing with unmatched freedom of movement. / | $225
