The 1 piece suit provides full body protection from cold, sun and marine stingers. It can be used under an existing wetsuit for extra warmth or can completely replace your wetsuit in warmer waters. It is less buoyant than neoprene so you need less weight, making you more comfortable when snorkeling or diving.
What is Chillproof? 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 wind chill. The third outer layer is a nylon/lycra blend for abrasion resistance and 4-way stretch. The three layers of Sharkskin when combined together provide the equivalent warmth of a 2.5 to 3mm wetsuit, but unlike a wetsuit the Chillproof material stops wind chill. The Chillproof product range offers a selection of options including tops with and without heavy-duty zippers, shorts, long pants and full suits. Chillproof is neutrally buoyant, antimicrobial, odor and itch resistant. It is also UV resistant for sun protection and has a durable water repellent finish (DWR) to provide a protective shell that ‘sheds’ water.
