Chillproof by Sharkskin is the smart skin that replaces a 3mm wetsuit with a revolutionary high tech trilaminate 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.
Sharkskin hand crafts 95% of its highly innovative range in its own factory in Newcastle, Australia in direct response to the needs of the end user. At Sharkskin we call that “responsive innovation”.
