The Sharkskin Mens Long Sleeve Top is a high performance alterative to neoprene that can be worn by itself or under your wetsuit or drysuit as and additional thermal layer. Designed by SCUBA divers Sharkskin is suitable for a wide range of watersports to keep you warm and safe against water, wind and harmful UV.
Trilaminate Material consists of a soft microfleece layer against the skin that wicks moisture away from your body to keep you warm and comfortable. A Mid-Layer of breathable yet windproof membrane lets your body regulate body temperature naturally while eliminating windchill. And an Outer-Layer of 4-way stretch abrasion, UV and water repellant material to provide a protective shell that 'sheds' water.
Neutrally Buoyant Material doesn't change your buoyancy so you don't need to add or remove lead while wearing it unless under a drysuit. The material is neutrally buoyant but has a thermal protection similar to a 2.5 - 3mm neoprene wetsuit.
Anti-Microbial, odour and itch resistant material is machine washable but will keep you feeling fresher for longer. A soft neoprene neck material helps to keep wind, water and spray from getting in for added comfort.
?Most Rash Vests fit tight against your skin for minimal drag, even protection and less riding up during use. If you prefer a loose fit these are also available and they are easier to don and doff. Close.
?Some Rash Vests have a thermal capacity to keep you warm by insulating you either by thin neoprene or a neoprene alternative layered material that keeps you warm even when wet. Close.
