These Sharkskin longpants use a Chillproof and 4-way stretch neoprene hybrid design to provide maximum warmth, maximum fit, and maximum mobility when in and on the water. The Chillproof material in the legs and crotch provide wind and thermal protection. The neoprene in the seat area provides more comfort for extended periods of sitting and more stretch for a better fit. The neoprene panels in the shin area of the legs provide the best design for water shedding of cold water – whether you are paddling or on the jetski. The high rear waist provides exceptional comfort and warmth when in a seated position and the longpant design provides warmth and 100% sun protection for your legs.
Great for all watersports including scuba diving and snorkelling in warmer waters and any watersport where you need maximum warmth in cold water or Winter temperatures.
