Your body's extremities lose heat rapidly so need protection from the cold. Sharkskin Chillproof Hood keep your head and ears toasty warm and dry by wicking the moisture away.

About Chillproof

Chillproof is an aquatic specific windchill proof, 3-layer composite material with the thermal properties of a 2.5 to 3mm neoprene wetsuit but without many of the drawbacks of traditional wetsuits. Chillproof can be worn under a wetsuit for extra warmth and enhanced wind protection. Chillproof can also be worn by itself as the perfect watersports thermal wear or layered with other Sharkskin garments for extra warmth and insulation.

It is ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling, jet skiing, paddle watersports, board watersports, wind watersports, sailing and many other watersports.

Chillproof Features

  • Nylon/Spandex outer layer for superior durability and abrasion resistance.
  • 100% windproof and 10K+ breathable membrane to stop windchill to keep you warm yet regulate body temperature to avoid overheating.
  • Hollow fibre 'next to skin' fleece for warmth, comfort and superior moisture wicking properties.
  • Durable water repellent (DWR) finish to provide a protective shell that ‘sheds’ water.
  • 4-way stretch ensures garments are non-restrictive allowing a full range of movement and are easy to get on and off.
  • Non-chaffing, itch and odour resistant properties mean that garments can be worn for long periods of time.
  • Durable seam thread to resist deterioration in saltwater so the garment will last longer.
  • Neutrally buoyant so there is no need to add extra weight when diving.
  • SPF50+ for sun protection to avoid skin damage and melanoma.

I started Ocean swimming in Victoria in October. The hood made such an improvement. What a great product and shipped ahead of time. Thank you..

I love my new sharkskin hood! The medium was too big ( I’ve got a small head but hate tight hoods..) so I exchanged it for a small and am very happy - fits closely but so stretchy it doesn’t feel too tight. I’m using it for scuba diving and it really keeps me so much warmer and is very comfortable. Also no trouble equalising ( whereas my neoprene hood always felt too tight and sometimes I had issues with my ears, even after adding extra pin holes). Highly recommend. I’ve got the chillproof socks too - they keep my feet warm and my dive boots don’t smell!

The hood seemed a bit of an odd shape when I first got it and I was worried about the large skirt. But it kept my head really warm when I was diving. The large skirt was easy and comfortable to tuck into my wetsuit and the large face opening made it easy to put on my mask and regulator.

I wear my Sharkskin hood with my wetsuit for ocean swimming in winter. It serves two purposes. One is to protect my neck from chafing from the wetsuit and the other is to protect it from the cold. I find it very satisfactory for both.
