The Sharkskin Chillproof Hooded Vest is great to add some additional warmth underneath your wetsuit.
More than 25% of body heat lost through the head and extremities of the body, so wearing a vest can help you stay warm! The Sharkskin Chillproof Hooded Vest is a great insulator. Wear on its own for watersports or warm weather diving, or underneath a wetsuit to provide additional insulation and protection. Take advantage of the convenience of a hood which protects your head and prevents hair from getting in the way of your mask, and have it attached to a vest to help moving or shifting whilst diving. The hood can be slid on and off as required.
This vest comes in mens sizes XXS-5XL, and women’s sizes 6-22.

What is ChillProof?
ChillProof 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 SharkSkin when combined together provide the equivilant warmth of a 2.5 to 3mm wetsuit. Unlike a standard wetsuit, ChillProof material stops wind and chill. The ChillProof 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.
