PEAK UK, keeping you dry and warm!

Western Canoeing and Kayaking is now officially Peak UK's largest dealer in Canada. Once you see this gear and the amazing prices you will understand why we dove head first into this very innovative line of layering and dry gear. European paddlers have long enjoyed this quality gear and now we're bringing it to B.C.

With everything from Dry-suits and Dry tops to socks and thermal layers Peak offers a wide range of gear to keep you comfortable out on the water no matter the conditions.

For Dry Suits, Peak offers 2 styles. The Creek Suit is made for heavy use in demanding whitewater environments and is packed full of awesome features like, X4 fabric for great waterproofing and breathability, optional elbow, shoulder and spine padding (for those rare occasions you find yourself offline). But possibly coolest of all is the leg entry zip system, this unique zipper system is fully waterproof and makes getting in and out of the suit really easy, it also doubles as a relief zipper so you don't have to gear down every time nature calls.

For touring paddlers Peak offers the Adventurer Suit. Made from the same bomber material as the Creek suit this piece of gear is going to keep you dry for years to come. The Adventurer comes with a neoprene neck gasket instead of a latex for added comfort on long hauls. This suit also uses the handy leg entry zip system. The stowed away 2.5 layer hood means you can adjust for changing conditions on the water. With built in socks, like the creek suit, and lots of reflective taping this suit doesn't only keep you comfortable it also offers an element of safety.

Now for the best part, both the Creek and Adventurer suits sell for $699.00, yes, you read that right.

If you don't need the full on dry suit for your paddling, Peak also offers the Deluxe Dry Top, with the same material and many of the same features as the dry suits this is a really great top and like the suits, it's an amazing deal at only $259.00 for a full dry top with double tunnel and latex gaskets at the wrists and neck. (Still waiting on some sizes so call before you drive out)

To keep your hands warm, Peak makes ultra light weight Pogies. Made from 2.5 layer breathable fabric these pogies pack up small enough to fit into a life jacket pocket when you don't need them, and you won't notice the extra weight on your nice carbon paddle. $37.95

You can loose heat through your head faster than any other part of your body, to keep your noggin warm on the water Peak makes the Neoskin Headcase. This fleece lined Neoprene head warmer sells for only $22.95.

We also have a wide range of Peak's 2.5mm Neoprene Socks. With a super tough and super thin sole these socks will work great in even the tightest surf boats or can be used as some added warmth in your booties on those really cold days. $21.00

If you have paddled for very long you already know you can never have too much fleece. Peak also knows this and makes some really nice fleece pants and long sleeve tops. The Peak fleece tops are a medium weight tight fit so they will fit inside your dry suit or tops without bunching or making you look like the Michelin man, or woman. At $49.95 for the pants and $54.95 for the tops these pieces are going to be hugely popular.

To top it all off we have brought in some really comfortable PFD's from Peak at the unbeatable price of $69.00
