Ideal for helping to keep you warm whilst diving the Sharkskin Chillproof hood is a lightweight but warm garment suitable for use on its own or layered under another hood. 25% of our heat loss happens through our head and this can be greatly reduced with the use of a hood.
Sharkskin chillproof material is a skin layer that is ideal for use both above and below the water. The trilaminate (3 layer) material is equivalent to a 3mm wetsuit with the benefit of keeping you warm when it's cold and cool when it's hot. Wear garments on their own in warm waters or layer under another suit in cold water.
The smooth outer layer is a four way stretch material with a durable water repellent which will bead away splashes of water. With SPF50+ protection chillproof garments are great for use on, in and under the water.
The second mid layer provides protection for the elements with a 10,000 plus technical membrane that is not only windproof but is also breathable to prevent over heating.
The inner layer which sits against the skin is a high tech hollow fibre fleece which will retain water when submerged and wick away moisture when on the surface. The high loft fleece holds air against the body to keep you warm with minimal bulk. Any excess heat or water vapour will pass through the one way semi permeable membrane to prevent over heating.
