To keep you dry without making you too hot and sweaty, so you can be comfortable in your adventures.
The tuilik seals directly to the cockpit coaming, and is designed to leave you with full range of motion.
With nothing squeezing your torso.
The smooth neoprene gives a good seal on the face and coaming to keep the water out.
Perfect for practicing the balance brace, or you rolling skills
And also to keep you comfortable for just paddling.
Got the Tuilik yesterday. Very comfortable paddling and not a drop of water while rolling. Best investment I have made apart from the kayak itself.
I got the tuilik a year ago, with the idea of only using it for rolling. I liked it so much that I have not worn my dry suit since.
It's a fantastic piece of gear that takes paddling to the next level
We only have so many adventures left. We need to do everything we can to make them happen.
I have had my Comfort Paddling Tuilik now for 1 year and it remains my paddling top of choice. So much so that I have asked Paulo to make me another one to fit my large cockpit kayaks.
It fits perfectly and I tried it on the water doing a few rolls, sculling and braces. I was completely dry and did not even get my hair wet!
Also, as I suspected, some rolls and braces are easier in the Tuilik than when wearing a drysuit.
The purpose of the tunnel is to stop any water that is in your kayak from coming up and getting your chest wet when you are upside down.
If you have dry pants with a tunnel you can roll them together to get a better seal.
You can also just wear it over your dry pants.
For example the tuilik on the picture has royal for the top and navy for the bottom.
If you're not happy with the tuilik for any reason, here's what you can do.
So the most you can lose is the shipping cost Plus $100
How do I determine if I need the tunnel?
If you are wearing the tuilik with dry pants or wetsuit, I would recommend you get the tunnel. If you are wearing the tuilik over a drysuit, I would not get the tunnel.
What happens if I go for a swim?
How waterproof is the face seal?
For most people it's a perfect seal. But for some, because of the shape of their face, the seal lets a bit of water in.
What happens if I'm not happy with the fit? Can I return it?
See return policy above for the details.
Is the tuilik good for winter paddling, or for summer paddling?
Because the Tuilik is made of waterproof/breathable fabric, much like a Gore Tex jacket, it is not warm on it's own. But the design is roomy enough to allow you to wear something under it. With a sweater, the t
Tuilik becomes very comfortable for winter paddling. And with a thin shirt, it's comfortable for warmer weather. If it's too hot to wear a Gore Tex jacket the Tuilik will be too hot also.
