Sharkskin Chillproof Vest is a great torso warmer!
With large arm sockets and a low cut neck, the Sharkskin Chillproof Vest protect the bodys core while allowing for maximum mobility during strenuous activities. You lose a large amount of warmth from the torso, so simply adding a vest helps greatly to add warmth! You can wear this vest by itself for watersports where shoulder movement is essential, or underneath a wetsuit to add a layer and keep you cosy throughout your dive. You’ll be shocked the difference that it will make!
The Sharkskin Chillproof Vest comes in women’s size 6-22, and men’s size XXS-5XL.

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.
