HD stands for ‘heavy duty’. As well as Chillproof ‘back of hand’ to stop heat loss and for warmth this glove has a 2 layer amara palm and extra reinforcing on the inside of the thumb and over the top of the forefinger. Perfect for handling ropes, kayak fishing, surfski paddling and other watersports activities where you want protection from abrasion and the cold as well as extra ‘feel’ and dexterity by having 3 fingers out.

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.

    Watersports HD gloves

    Good and comfortable fit. I used these specifically for kayaking. Have used other gloves, but found they wear between Thumb and pointer finger.

    Perfect for canyoning

    Loved these gloves for canyoning, the wetsuit material kept my hands warm, the three fingerless tops were great for setting up abseils and the thicker palms of the gloves kept the heat off my hands while rappelling. Well done Sharskin!!

    Stood up to an 18th century beating.

    I recently spent a week working on an 18th century tallship and these gloves were amazing.

    Working with heavy coarse hemp and other fibre lines, climbing tarred rigging, or even helming the ship were a breeze.

    No chaffing or rope burn, comfortable fit, good padding on the palm where it's needed, great grip, and definitely kept the chill away while on watch. I'd highly recommend these gloves.

    Great Gloves

    These are great fitting gloves. I have large hands and long fingers and these gloves fit me very well. They keep my hands warm while paddling and fishing, providing excellent grip and feeling.

    Quality Gear

    I fish offshore from a Seadoo Fishpro Jetski and these gloves keep the early morning chill from the hands.

    Great quality, durable and comfy - can wear them all morning with no problem.

    Great gloves

    Good fit based on the size chart. Keeps my hands warm whilst fishing on cold winter evenings or mornings. The finger cut-off design is ideal to maintain tactility and they are well made using quality materials.

    Excellent quality

    I’m a Postie and these gloves help me keep my hands warmer in winter, especially when it’s raining. Personally I would prefer only the thumb and forefinger exposed but that’s not available. I ordered the size large and they are quite firm.

    I’d recommend these to any outdoor people.
