This short sleeve top is for when the conditions dictate or arm manoeuvrability is a priority. It uses the same neck seal as the long sleeve top and is perfect as an extra layer under wetsuits when the water gets chilly.
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.
Sharkskin Chillproof is neutrally buoyant, anti-microbial, odour and itch resistant.
