Sharkskin Chillproof Front Zip Undergarment Suit
Sharkskin Chill proof Front Zip Undergarment Suit is the original under suit from Sharkskin, designed to add a layer of warmth underneath your wetsuit or to wear alone. Unlike standard neoprene, Sharkskin Chill proof is doesn’t add buoyancy, and it doesn’t feel restrictive when wearing. You can add the equivalent of 3mm of warmth without these factors! On top of that, it protects against the sun, as well as stings and scratches if you were to wear the undergarment on it’s own. We love Sharkskin as you can get more flexibility with these garments without having to buy many different wetsuit thicknesses!
The Sharkskin Chill proof Front Zip Undergarment Suit comes in Men’s sizes XXS-5XL, and women’s sizes 6-22.
Sharkskin also has a rear-zip suit, called the Sharkskin Suit. This is a better option for surfers, so you don’t have a zipper rubbing on your chest.
What is ChillProof?
Chill proof is an aquatic specific, windproof, 3 layer composite material that has been developed for water sports athletes. The comfortable “micro fleece” layer is next to the skin and can help pull moisture and sweat away from the body to help keep you dry. The second middle ‘technical’ layer is 100% windproof, yet breathes to regulate body temperature whilst stopping wind chill. The third and outer layer is a nylon/lycra blend for abrasion resistance and 4 way stretch.
These three layers of Shark Skin when combined together provide the equivalent warmth of a 2.5 to 3mm wetsuit. Unlike a standard wetsuit, Chill Proof material stops wind and chill. The Chill Proof range is neutrally buoyant, antimicrobial, and odor and itch resistant. It’s also UV resistant for sun protection and has durable water repellent finish (DWR) to provide a protective shell that “sheds” water.
