Ther Vest is designed to be worn under a wetsuit, this vest provides increased thermal protection of the body core by the equivalent of an extra 2mm of neoprene, whilst being neutrally buoyant and maintaining the freedom of movement of the arms. It will virtually eliminate the feeling of water coming in through the zip and will enhance thermal protection considerably. On its own, or worn with Thermocline shorts, the vest is perfect for core protection for summer paddling.
The Hooded Vest has the equivalent performance of 2mm neoprene, this is the perfect choice for an extra layer of core thermal protection under a wetsuit. Because it’s not made of neoprene, it is neutrally buoyant and machine washable and can be squeezed into your bag without fear of creasing and damaging the material.
