Chillproof by Sharkskin
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.
Chillproof Titanium (titanium far infrared) garments provide maximum warmth. This new fabric adds TiFIR technology to the original Chillproof fabric for even more warmth along with the associated health, performance and recovery benefits of far-infrared.
A revolution in thermal protection providing all the properties of traditional Chillproof plus the added benefit of titanium nanotechnology that both captures and generates far infrared radiation to generate heat and provide regenerative benefits.
Titanium garments are windproof, lightweight, neutrally buoyant and provide the warmth of a 4 to 5mm traditional wetsuit. Ditch your old wetsuit or layer for extra insulation in cold waters.
