The TYPHOON Series Jacket, introduced in 2011, is the garment from which all other STORMRs were born. Through word of mouth among serious anglers, mariners and hunters, this jacket quickly gained a reputation as the warmest, most comfortable and most functional foul weather jacket available. The TYPHOON rapidly became popular among the northeast commercial fishing fleet as well with recreational striper chasers, before spreading into other activities as well. The TYPHOON remains the heartbeat of the STORMR line, providing a baseline of important features and unmatched maneuverability. As with our other series, we don’t cut corners on safety here – TYPHOON comes complete with 3M reflective graphics and nearly five pounds of positive buoyancy*. This jacket’s warmth, comfort and safety features give you the ability to stay out longer and perform better, no matter what your pursuit.
Neoprene Core Technology
Neoprene Core Technology revolutionizes outerwear design by affixing our ultra-thin neoprene core with proven outdoor fabrics in a special lamination process. Until this process was perfected, no one could produce neoprene this thin and this warm. As a result of this breakthrough, STORMR products provide superior warmth, inherent flotation and incredible flexibility. Interior moisture-wicking fleece keeps you warm while the exterior windproof, waterproof shell beads water on impact.
"High Stretch" Windproof/Waterproof Materials – For decades surfers have utilized neoprene garments to maintain a limitless range of motion atop the water. Now land-based athletes and outdoorsmen can experience that same fluidity and explosiveness. STORMR products conform to your body and move without binding or confining the wearer. The Neoprene core, water-tight thermal taped seams, water-repellent finish and micro-fleece lining keep the elements out while trapping warm air between your body and the jacket. The STORMR products function like a wetsuit, but provide a thermal barrier of warm air rather than one consisting of water.
Positive Buoyancy – Neoprene Core Technology contains a substantial amount of inherent buoyancy, thus bolstering the weather-blocking benefits of the unique STORMR construction process. When worn together, STORMR Jackets and Bibs provide up to 10 pounds of positive buoyancy. Although STORMR products are not meant to replace USCG-approved flotation devices, they provide meaningful flotation benefits as well as substantial thermal protection in the event of full immersion in cold water.
Durable Water Repellant Finish – The entire exterior fabric of each STORMR product is treated with a water-repellent finish that prevents precipitation from saturating or penetrating the garment's exterior fabric. Unlike some other forms of foul-weather gear, this added feature keeps the jacket lightweight and dry during long periods of inclement weather.
