Chillproof by Sharkskin is the smart skin that replaces a 3mm wetsuit with a revolutionary high tech tri laminate that will keep you cool when it’s hot and warm when your cold - in, on and under the water
Sharkskin's outer layer is a robust, high quality 4 way stretch material with a durable water repellent (DWR).
The second layer is a 10,000 plus technical membrane that stops windchill and "breathes" to prevents overheating.
The 'next to skin' layer is a high tech hollow fibre fleece that retains water when submerged and wicks moisture away on the surface to dry quickly and keep you comfortable..
How does it work?
When submerged the hollow fibre fleece is designed to absorb and hold water and prevent water flushing through the suit. Your body heats the water which provides a barrier against the cold water outside of the suit.
On the surface Chillproof provides a windproof and water resistant barrier to the elements. The high loft hollow fleece holds air which your body heats to keep you warm with minimal bulk. Any moisture is quickly wicked away and excess heat or water vapour will pass through the one way semi permeable membrane to prevent over heating.
So Sharkskin keeps cool when it’s hot, and warm when it’s cold. Additionally it's neutrally buoyant, flexible, odour resistant and super comfortable.
Sharkskin Chillproof is the ideal water sports apparel to replace a 3mm wetsuit in, on or under the water! It can be used as an extra layer to add extra warmth under a wetsuit or Drysuit, or can be used on its own as the perfect single layer garment to keep you warm and comfortable in almost any situation from using on a boat or a night on the town.
Sharkskin Chillproof is ideal for all water sports including diving, snorkelling, jet skiing, all paddle watersports including SUP, surfski and outrigger, wind surf and kite boarding, sailing and also as a second layer under wetsuits for surfers and ocean swimmers.
