This Sharkskin Performance Wear top uses Chillproof 3-layer material for warmth and compression fabric for maximum performance.

Chillproof panels cover the front of the torso and the lower back and kidney area. The arms and shoulders are covered in compression panels to increase endurance and muscle recovery in these working muscles. The compression fabric is also flexible and breathable for fantastic arm movement and temperate regulation and is UPF50+ to provide sun protection for your arms and shoulders.

Great for paddle watersports, board watersports, sailing, multisport, etc where you need to keep your torso warm and give your arms and shoulders a performance boost.

Also great for scuba diving and snorkelling in warmer waters. The Chillproof keeps your torso warm and the compression fabric keeps your arms and shoulders protected from the Sun.

      I was introduced to Sharkskin while training through one of Europe’s harshest winters contending with snow, blizzards and freezing temperatures training on the River Thames in London and competing throughout Europe. One of the challenges of SUP training is that you get really hot when you are out on the water training, but wearing a wetsuit and/or multiple layers of clothing is impractical, uncomfortable & causes excessive bulk and prohibits freedom of movement in the upper body. Good training kit that performs and is functional in cold weather is hard to find. Sharkskin Performance Wear tops go a long way to making it a lot easier to make it out the door and onto the water on those colder days. Sharkskin’s ChillproofLong Sleeve top is big step in the right direction of developing true cold weather training apparel and I’ve had it out in as low at minus 20 degrees Celsius on high alpine mountain lakes in Bavaria, Germany. The thermal torso combined with light and flexible compression fabric sleeves makes for a highly functional garment that enables you freedom of movement, insulation and reduction of windchillto your core. The cut of the sleeve enables maximum movement and flat seam stitching reduces friction & chaffing.
