Splashvest--How it Should Fit

The Splashvest is made to be warn close to the body, but should not be snug. We have different patterns for women and men, each has the same in-the-boat functionality.
 

A. Your Splashvest should fit close to the body, with the lower back feeling close but not tight around your hips. You should have plenty of room to wear a snug-fitting baselayer beneath your vest. The real test is to go into full compression--whether on the ground or on an erg.  If meant to be worn upright, then just jump around! 

B. Stretch panels allow for great venting and movement

C. Vests with Fleece will fit differently than vests made with mesh (or unlined vests) since the fleece takes up actual volume inside the garment.  A Fleece-lined vest will feel tighter than an unlined vest of the same size, but will still be true to size. 



For the best fit, choose your size based on these methods
  1. Very Best: Try on the product. Sources: Previously owned JL item, JL sizing Kit, teammate's JL item.
  2. Next Best: Send us your measurements on a team order sheet, contact us if you are unsure

Design your Splashvest

When you sit down to design your JL Splashvest, there are three important issues:

  1. Consider your body type and your climate; do you need the warmth of Powerstretch® Fleece all around, or is it just wind-break you are after?
  2. We have almost every team color in Hytrel and Drywick, however Flashlight and Powerstretch® Fleece colors are more limited.  
  3. Our design team has created Splashvests with stripes and swirls--if you want to add some flash to your team design, don't be shy, just ask if there is something you don't see.

  • What is so different from JL's other rowing vests??
    Two main differences: First, the Splashvest has a full-length zipper; second, the windbreak shell fabric is on the front as well as the back. After you get out of the boat, you can use this vest in sports where you face forward!
  • How snug should I wear it?
    The Splashvest has breathable stretch side panels, which give you some movement. Wear the vest close to your body but not snug.  But it is the thickness of the fabrics you choose for your garment that dictate how snug it will fit--fleece will take up some of the volume. For more information on fit, click on the Sizing tab above.
  • Should I worry about getting the tail stuck in my tracks?
    Not at all! When sized correctly the tail lays flat; protecting your lower back completely yet still "floating" far above the tracks.
     
 
 
NO MINIMUMS on JL Manufactured items!
