Beat the cold with Rooster's top 5 timeless kit tips!

by Rooster 15 Feb 12:30 GMT

TIP #1:

Ditch the rash vest

They're designed to keep you cool, so you'd be warmer and better off without one. That goes for most swimsuits too! Instead get your hands on some naturally hydrophobic Rooster PolyPro base layers. Available in Long Sleeve Top, Leggings, Socks, Headband, Balaclava & Glove Liner - no excuses now! :-)


TIP #2:

Headwear is king

To keep warm in-between races, always carry some insulating headwear tucked into your buoyancy aid. Our Aquafleece® Beanie is a perfect lightweight yet warm solution, available in 4 different colours, from size small to extra large. If ice is forming on your foredeck then checkout our new Supertherm Beanie - You'll be toasty all day!


TIP #3:

Cosy toes!

If you can spare the space, our 2.5mm Neoprene SuperStretch Wet Socks are a great solution to cold toes whilst also improving comfort underfoot - Alternatively PolyPro Socks can be worn almost unnoticed and provide an instant heat boost and keep your feet feeling drier for longer!


TIP #4:

Changing room chill

Put your PolyPro base layers on at home beneath your normal clothing - arrive at the club warm, cosy and ready to beat the changing room chill!


TIP #5:

Cold water flushing

Not all wetsuits are created equal - The glued and blindstitched construction of our SuperTherm® range is designed to minimise water ingress through the seams, preventing cold water from flushing through your suit when you take that inevitable swim!
