# 3 – Review: Palm Zenith Jackets

Palm’s Zenith Jackets have been around for a while and they’re getting better with every new release. There is a long and a short sleeve version, a long sleeve women’s model, and a few colour options.
For 2019 Palm exchanged the GlideSkin neoprene neck with the new UltraStretch neoprene seal: this is much thinner, sticks comfortably to the skin and, I think, it keeps the water out almost as good as a latex neck seal.

The fabric of both, short and long sleeve jackets, is a 2.5-layer breathable material. Palm’s been using this for years, it’s super reliable, doesn’t delaminate, and stays waterproof for years.

My favourite paddle jackets for summer and winter, I don’t think anything else can beat them!
