HD stands for ‘heavy duty’. As well as Chillproof ‘back of hand’ to stop heat loss and for warmth this glove has a 2 layer amara palm and extra reinforcing on the inside of the thumb and over the top of the forefinger. Perfect for handling ropes, kayak fishing, surfski paddling and other watersports activities where you want protection from abrasion and the cold as well as extra ‘feel’ and dexterity by having 3 fingers out.
Chillproof is an aquatic specific windchill proof, 3-layer composite material with the thermal properties of a 2.5 to 3mm neoprene wetsuit but without many of the drawbacks of traditional wetsuits. Chillproof can be worn under a wetsuit for extra warmth and enhanced wind protection. Chillproof can also be worn by itself as the perfect watersports thermal wear or layered with other Sharkskin garments for extra warmth and insulation.
It is ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling, jet skiing, paddle watersports, board watersports, wind watersports, sailing and many other watersports.
