I love the Sharkskin kit !!
I love the Sharkskin kit. It performed brilliantly over the two regattas we've used it for this summer. If you look at photos of the 12 Foot Skiff Interdominions you'll notice that we were the only guys warm enough to sail in shorts! We layered Performance Wear tops and shorts over the Chillproof garments; the combination was really warm and much more flexible than a traditional wetsuit. The Performance 'compression' gear allowed us to keep our PFD and harness enveloped and also provided protection from chafing during some hard sailing.
The Performance Top allows for that without the chance of overheating and keeping the wearer safe from the sun !!
Sharkskin is all about staying warm and avoiding wind chill on and around the water. The Performance Top allows for that without the chance of overheating and keeping the wearer safe from the sun at the same time. New Zealand's weather can often expose us to four seasons in one day which the Performance Top deals with like no other product out there can. The compression material is extremely nice when I am paddling and makes my muscles feel great with firm unhindered support. Better still, the material is great to fish with and is perfect for activities like softbaiting which usually involves plenty of casting and working of the bait.
Sharkskin garments are tight yet the movement of the body is great because of the quality of the material !!
I have worn Sharkskin's Performance Wear Long Sleeve top in all kinds of conditions – sun, rain, wind, in lakes, rivers, in the sea, calm waters and in wild waters. Sharkskin garments are tight yet the movement of the body is great because of the quality of the material. I can move perfectly in it. Sharkskin is warm where it needs to be, it's 100% windproof and waterproof. What I like most is that the material breathes (something I miss when wearing usual kayak anoraks) – this way my skin and the inner side of the garment stay dry at all times. For this reason I feel great all the time during practice and the are no cold chills at the end of practice which is very useful in winter when the temperatures get lower.
I love about all the Sharkskin products !
The thing I love about all the Sharkskin products is that they take time to make the garment the best it can be for the paddler. On top of Sharkskin's Chillproof range of paddling products, now comes the Performance Pro compression top. I use the Sharkskin compression top for not only racing but for training as well. The good thing with this top it is that I never get too hot or cold.
