The Sharkskin Chillproof sleeveless top is designed for water sports enthusiasts who need 100% arm movement but also require comfort and warmth. The design has large arm sockets and a low-cut neckline to protect the body’s core while still allowing maximum mobility for your favourite watersports and activities.

The sleeveless top is perfect by itself as the ‘go to’ Chillproof garment for every watersport and every occasion or teamed up with a Rapid Dry short or long sleeve top as a second layer for extra insulation for all paddle, power and board watersports. Also fantastic as a second layer underneath a wetsuit for scuba diving and snorkelling to take the chill off in colder water or in Winter. This ‘go anywhere’ top gives you all the warmth and protection you need, without restricting your movement.

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.
  • UPF50+ for sun protection.

    Does the job ..

    The vest is not quite as snug as I would like as it seems to have overly taken account of breast size--but I respect that not all women nor all vests can truly be one size fits all. Having said that, it does what it says and I am swimming waaaay more in the cool waters of Tassie than I was --which was the aim

    Chillproof vest

    I like it. It was recommended for me because the heating in our local pool had broken. Also the old steamer I wear in the surf is getting a bit loose so I wear this underneath. It is probably a titch loose for me but I think if I had gone down to the very smallest size I may have not been able to get it off

    I bought this vest for lap swimming in the ocean baths as I get very cold in the water even in summer. Being a vest it doesn't restrict my arm and leg movement. (During the winter months I swim in a full steamer wetsuit) The vest keeps my chest and back warm and you cannot feel the cold water against your skin. The vest has a thermal, fleecy inner layer that's soft and warm against the skin and the usual wetsuit outer layer. The product looks good and is of good quality. I purchased a size 8 which is a snug fit but I wanted it too be snug to minimise entry of cold water. If I was using this vest for another purpose like kayaking or SUP I probably would have bought a size 10. The only thing I would suggest would be a zipper either in the front or on the side to make it a little easier to get on and off. Delivery was quick. Very happy with this product.
