The Journey is perfect for recreational paddling and sailing because they are so lightweight, contoured to fit like a glove, and totally open on the sides. It's MTI's lightest vest of all tipping the scales at less than 1 lb. A top choice for triathletes, dragon boat teams, and adventure racers. The 3D contoured front chest panels wrap around the torso. The soft shoulders trimmed with reflective for don't rub or chafe.
