    PWC Riding Gear [JetPilot]

    Hello PWC Riders!


    I am in need of new gear. I want to buy some PWC gear before the big season.


    I am looking for JetPilot Vest, Jet Pilot Gloves and Jet Pilot water shoes.

    I found some on eBay but I want it all matching and black.

    Help me choose some gear and post what you got.


    Thanks!

    I have the Jet Pilot Apex side entry vest and really like it.

    I also have Jet Pilot full finger gloves...not a huge fan of them actually but keep them for back up and the wife has had a pair for a couple years now and doesn't complain.

    I myself prefer the Slippery Circuit gloves.

    Thanks for the post.

    I just ordered the Side Entry Jet Pilot vest.

    Really excited!

    I think I will get a different pair of gloves from Jet Pilot.

    Oh and the water shoes.


    I'm so excited to have new gear this season.

    I decided to go with the Apex Black/Gray so it matches with the rest of the gear.

    In other vests I found that when you sit down on your ski they push up into your face and shoulders and it's very annoying.

    Hopefully this new vest doesn't do that.

    The wife and I use Vibram 5-Fingers as our water shoes. They work fine--but you should probably get something with some ankle support if you're going to compete.

    A good idea is to buy your gear and accessories for different air temp and water temps in mind..I just assume that You ski with big changes in weather conditions...

    1) 3/2 wetsuit for cool days a 4/3 suit for cold days
    2) thin cut gloves (slippery,jet pilot) with ventilation for warm summer days and neoprene 5-7 mm (oneill) for cold days (45-55*)
    3) jet pilot boots yr around and 2-3 mm neoprene socks to wear on cool/cold days
    4) goggles there are lots of brands (jettribe,spex etc) most important that they have vent/ drain holes UV protection and possibly float, also if you ride cold like less than 55* you should wear a snow/ski goggle , your eyes will tear drop from wind/ cold..


    Just some thoughts, enjoy

    Thanks for that info.

    I forgot about Goggles, I think I will buy a matching pair to my FOX helmet when it comes.

    Since I am in California it's usually always 70F when I'm out so I think I don't need a wet suit atm.

    I might get a shirt and jet pilot shorts but thats it for now.
