This top is made from Chillproof material with an inbuilt reflective function. The short sleeve design allows for more arm freedom with the ultimate versatility by being able to zip up for 100% warmth and protection, or zip down when the sun comes out or your work rate goes up. It also has a high collar to keep your neck warm. This is a great summer top that can be teamed up with a Rapid Dry top for sun protection.
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.
