ZHIK MENS CST500 SAILING Jacket

The Zhik CST500 sailing jacket is part of the high performance coastal range which is purpose built to provide lightweight protection, comfort and performance in a wide range of conditions.

This version of the CST500 sailing jacket comes in a Flame Red and Anthracite colour and is equally as comfortable in short-haul and overnight crossings, as it is in high performance sports boat racing.

The CST500 range features highly breathable and durable Aroshell fabric technology, paired with numerous weight-saving and comfort providing features.

This jacket is fully seam-taped and critically reinforced for ultimate protection, this innovative range is purpose built for coastal racing and cruising, while also providing genuine crossover coverage for other conditions.

New Zithane® fused reinforcement panels have replaced the traditional heavy denier reinforcements, creating a highly durable reinforced panel that maintains seam integrity and provides large reductions in weight. Developed and tested with Team Akzonobel during the 2017 – 18 Volvo Ocean Race, Zithane® technology provided additional layers of durability during extreme legs of the race.
