The Sharkskin Chillproof Vest is designed for water sports enthusiasts who need great manoeuvrability but also require comfort and warmth. The vest has large arm sockets and a low-cut neckline protect the body’s core while still allowing maximum mobility for your water-based sports and activities. By itself, under a wetsuit, or with a Rapid Dry as a second layer, this vest gives you all the warmth and protection you need, without restricting your movement. Also available in women's cut.
Chillproof is an aquatic specific, windchill proof, 3-layer composite material with the thermal properties of a 2.5 to 3mm neoprene wetsuit that has been developed for watersports athletes.
The comfortable ‘hollow fibre fleece’ layer is next to the skin and ‘wicks’ moisture and sweat away from the body to help keep you dry. The second middle ‘technical’ layer is 100% windproof yet breathes to regulate body temperature while stopping windchill. The third outer layer is a nylon/lycra blend for abrasion resistance and 4 way stretch.
It is also UV resistant for sun protection and has a durable water repellent finish (DWR) to provide a protective shell that ‘sheds’ water.
