Global watersports gear brand Vaikobi has launched a NEW versatile and technical product that will impress all water sports lovers: The Beach Coat.

The Vaikobi Beach Coat is made for anyone who needs warmth and protection from the great outdoors, and provides wind and water protection while remaining light weight. Vaikobi have ensured this Beach Coat is stylish enough to be worn across a wide range of occasions near or away from the water.

"You'll find yourself wearing it often, for any outdoor activity to protect you from the wind or rain. This jacket is just as at home in the boat park, on the water, regattas, watching sport outdoors, walking on the beach, walking your dog or watching your kids outdoors when it's cold," explains Vaikobi CEO, Pat Langley.

This will surely become one of your favourite pieces of gear from Vaikobi, offering the perfect combo of stylish water and windproof soft shell jacket, and a classic oversized changing robe.

What makes this product stand out is the ultra soft compact fleece lining that's highly absorbent and quick drying. The jacket is made from a technical bonded 2-layer fabric, which outperforms other garments that use a thin shell and thick fleece liner. This bonded fabric technology makes the Vaikobi Beach Coat much lighter than other jackets in this category and makes it much easier to travel with, since it doesn't take up too much space in your kit bag.

"Paddlers and sailors will be excited by an option to quickly warm up both before and after a cold training session or race, which is where the concept started." says Vaikobi's Product Innovator and Designer Bart Milczarczyk.

Vaikobi's Beach Coat design combines high quality technical features with functional ones, creating a premium soft shell jacket that is fuzzy enough to use it to warm you up after a cool water session, and spacious enough to get changed in or out of your swimsuit or wetsuit.

"The fleece lined zippered pockets are useful for keeping items safe from sand and water, and are very spacious." explains Milczarczyk. "The coat features 2 large front pockets and 2 inner chest pockets. You can stash your phone, wallet, lip balm, sunscreen, snacks, or just warm your hands."

There are 3 colour options to choose from: Grey with orange fleece inner, black with grey inner, and navy with bright cyan inner. The Beach Coat is available in two sizes: S-M and L-XL.

Key features of the Vaikobi Beach Coat:

  • Wind proof, waterproof, absorbent, warm with minimal weight and bulk
  • Water Repellent outer sheds rain and cuts wind-chill
  • Wicking and quick dry fabrication
  • High standing structured collar for extra coverage on the neck
  • Functional oversize hood with drawcord closure
  • Plush fleece lined inner, highly absorbent and dries quickly, providing warmth and insulation
  • Full length 2-way zipper front closure and splits on the sides
  • Wrist cuffs with velcro closure

Order your Vaikobi Beach Coat from and in quality sailing retailers and paddling retailers worldwide.
