Chillproof Long Sleeve top is a big step in the right direction of developing true cold weather training apparel !!
I was introduced to Sharkskin while training through one of Europe's harshest winters contending with snow, blizzards and freezing temperatures training on the Thames in London and competing throughout Europe. One of the challenges of SUP training is that you get really hot when you are out on the water training, but wearing a wetsuit and/or multiple layers of clothing is impractical, uncomfortable & causes excessive bulk and prohibits freedom of movement in the upper body. Good training kit that performs and is functional in cold weather is hard to find. Sharkskin Performance Wear tops go a long way to making it a lot easier to make it out the door and onto the water on those colder days. The Chillproof Long Sleeve top is a big step in the right direction of developing true cold weather training apparel and I've had it out in as low at minus 20 degrees Celsius on high alpine mountain lakes in Bavaria.
I'm fine even with the harshest southerlies.
Sharkskin has to be the best thermal garment I've used for my Kitesurfing. Comfortable, warm and lightweight it's great when the wind chill gets down. During the winter months can be especially hard while teaching but with my Sharksins under my wetsuit I'm fine even with the harshest southerlies.
Chillproof tops... no chaffing even after back to back days of wearing
My journey circumnavigating NZ had me wearing the Sharkskin clothing range, on and off the water every day. It is the most mind-blowing gear. Every single item of Sharkskin I wore is still in fantastic condition. I paddled 114 days out of the 432 days of my 5800km journey. The gear kept me warm with no wind chill even when I was in the middle of the South Island winter - and even when wet! My support crew wore the pink rapid dry tops and the long performance wear paddle pants....... they also loved them!
I wore the rapid dry tops, fantastic for summer and winter, along with the climate control range and Chillproof tops... no chaffing even after back to back days of wearing, coupled with ingrained salt, sand and sweat - the gear totally rocks! It withstood everything and more - it lasted the distance and still it has a lifetime of wear left. "Wear it once and you will not want to take it off".
My favourite item of clothing - my Chillproof Hooded Jacket. Worn every single day and still looks like new!
