The Sharkskin Chill-Proof Sleeveless Vest for Men is designed for water sports enthusiasts who demand maximum maneuverability without sacrificing comfort and warmth. Large arm sockets and a low-cut neckline protect the body’s core while allowing maximum mobility for strenuous exercise. By itself, under a wetsuit, or with a Rapid Dry as a second layer, this vest gets the job done.
Great as a standalone garment and also suitable for under a wetsuit or drysuit.
Sharkskin Chillproof is an aquatic specific, windproof 3-layer composite material that has been developed for water sports athletes.
The comfortable 'micro 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. Sharkskin Chillproof is neutrally buoyant, anti-microbial, odour resistant, itch resistant and machine washable.
Equivalent warmth of 2.5 to 3 mm of neoprene with no additional buoyancy.
Authentic Sharkskin garments come with a 12-month guarantee on workmanship. Excludes fading and degeneration as a result of excessive exposure to chlorine or sunlight. We guarantee Sharkskin will perform as advertised.
