The Sharkskin Chillproof sleeveless top is designed for water sports enthusiasts who need 100% arm movement but also require comfort and warmth. The design has large arm sockets and a low-cut neckline to protect the body’s core while still allowing maximum mobility for your favourite watersports and activities.

The sleeveless top is perfect by itself as the ‘go to’ Chillproof garment for every watersport and every occasion or teamed up with a Rapid Dry short or long sleeve top as a second layer for extra insulation for all paddle, power and board watersports. Also fantastic as a second layer underneath a wetsuit for scuba diving and snorkelling to take the chill off in colder water or in Winter. This ‘go anywhere’ top gives you all the warmth and protection you need, without restricting your movement.

About Chillproof

Chillproof is an aquatic specific windchill proof, 3-layer composite material with the thermal properties of a 2.5 to 3mm neoprene wetsuit but without many of the drawbacks of traditional wetsuits. Chillproof can be worn under a wetsuit for extra warmth and enhanced wind protection. Chillproof can also be worn by itself as the perfect watersports thermal wear or layered with other Sharkskin garments for extra warmth and insulation.

It is ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling, jet skiing, paddle watersports, board watersports, wind watersports, sailing and many other watersports.

Chillproof Features

  • Nylon/Spandex outer layer for superior durability and abrasion resistance.
  • 100% windproof and 10K+ breathable membrane to stop windchill to keep you warm yet regulate body temperature to avoid overheating.
  • Hollow fibre 'next to skin' fleece for warmth, comfort and superior moisture wicking properties.
  • Durable water repellent (DWR) finish to provide a protective shell that ‘sheds’ water.
  • 4-way stretch ensures garments are non-restrictive allowing a full range of movement and are easy to get on and off.
  • Non-chaffing, itch and odour resistant properties mean that garments can be worn for long periods of time.
  • Durable seam thread to resist deterioration in saltwater so the garment will last longer.
  • Neutrally buoyant so there is no need to add extra weight when diving.
  • UPF50+ for sun protection.

    At my age and Polynesian descent, I hate being cold! Optimal temperature while training and racing is vital for enjoyment and successful performance. I use the Hybrid Long Pants and Sleeveless Vest for the bulk of my paddle training, which is a combination of ocean surf ski, down river and white water. The major advantage I discovered with Sharkskin was that I am comfortable in cold conditions but I don't overheat if there is a temperature change. I have used it in many different ways, under my wetsuit canyoning, winter mountain biking and kite boarding. Sharkskin is wonder wear!

    I’ve had a few paddles in the Sharkskin Chest Vest in some really cold and windy Christchurch winter conditions. I really like how it stays dry on the inside and the fleece type material is really comfortable against the body. It doesn’t feel like other ’wetsuit’ vests as it moulds and moves with the paddling action and doesn’t restrict me at all. You can tell it provides 100% protection against the wind and cold as I could not feel any draught through the material, and it holds my body heat in well too. To top it off -it also looks cool! All in all a great product that will keep me paddling through winter chill free.

    Basically the Sharkskin comes out when the temperature is below 15 degrees... I wore mine the other day in Munich when the training on the Regatta course the temperature got to 12 degrees, and that’s the middle of summer over here. Yesterday we went into Munich and checked out the standing wave on the river where guys are all surfing in full length wetsuits, hoods and booties. I asked a guy for a couple of rides on his board and jumped in with boardies, a short sleeve thermal and my Sharkskin vest over the top. I was sweet -didn’t even get cold.

    Company did not send me this product but send a T2 chill proof sip up vest in it's place because of waiting for new stock to arrive.

    Another product worth purchasing, very happy and would happy to purchase another one and promote it. 5 star item. Can only imagine what the rest is like. Buy & try, no disappointments here
