Sharkskin Chillproof Vest with Hood - Mens

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. The three layers of Sharkskin when combined together provide the equivalent warmth of a 2.5 to 3mm wetsuit, but unlike a wetsuit the Sharkskin Chillproof material stops windchill. Sharkskin Chillproof is neutrally buoyant, anti-microbial, odour resistant, itch resistant and machine washable.

More than 25% of body heat is lost through the head and extremities of the body. The vest with hood design provides the best insulation and protection for colder dives. The hood protects against chaffing from mask straps, keeps your head and ears toasty warm, and is flexible enough to slide off if required, while still remaining comfortable. The hood allows better hearing and less chance of ear squeeze than traditional neoprene hoods.
