I liked the long-sleeved version that they sent me that I turned right around and bought a short-sleeved version. I wear it all the time, too!

When I wrote my last review, several people said they could not believe a company could get away with charging that much for a paddle shirt. Well. Don’t look at the price on the Kula Hoodie. As someone I know said “The price is so high it is almost offensive.”

I’m not easily offended.

Love me some Good Gear

There is SO. MUCH. GEAR. to keep track of in paddleboarding. Especially in the winter. Booties, leashes, hats, jackets, wetsuits, socks, dry clothes, CamelBaks, lights (lest you get stuck in the dark, AGAIN). When you can find something that does its job well, something that you’ll use almost every day, to me it’s worth it to get it (if you can!).

When I look at the conditions in the fall–fog, 60 degree water, 50 degree air, wind, rain, fishing boats, waves–the Bluesmiths shirt is what comes to mind immediately.

The Mullet loves his Bluesmiths KULA Hoodie as much as I love my Kanaha shirt. He wears it all the time. You can see it in this SONAR report.

Love me a Good Hoodie

I will put my A/C on TWELVE degrees if it means I can wear a sweatshirt/fleece/hoodie. And in Wilmington, that’s about all you need for a good jacket–post-paddle, post-surf, and during holiday strolling and shopping. So, I am now lusting after the Kula hoodie. Hey–it’s ok. My mom asked what I wanted for Christmas, and this year I actually have something to wish for!
