Sharkskin Chillproof Shorts
Sharkskin Chillproof Shorts are ideal for use in all water-sports. Even if you’re protected from the elements by a deck or skirt, the Sharkskin Shorts provide protection. They can help stop chafing when dry, and give you peace of mind that if you get wet you will still be warm. They can also be worn in combination with all other sharkskin garments.
These 100% Chillproof shortpants are equally suitable teamed up with a top, or by themselves as the ultimate in thermal wear. You can wear them as is, or underneath a wetsuit to increase it’s warmth. They are cut with a high rear waist for comfort and warmth.
Chillproof Shorts are available in Mens XXS – 5XL, and womens 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.
