Zhik's new Z-Skin – your breathable, warm 'second skin'

by Zhik 30 Apr 07:00 BST

Zhik's Z-Skin® Top has evolved for 2021 to become one of the thinnest ever, skin-fitting neoprene tops. It's the perfect performance top to crossover high activity sailing and watersports, including paddling, body boarding and surfing and can be worn with a wetsuit, leggings or shorts.

As the name suggests, the ergonomically cut Z-Skin Top is designed to act as a protective 'second skin', giving high levels of shielding from wind chill, together with moderate levels of thermal insulation for active use and high water-shedding properties.

When you are regularly in and out of the water, even in warm weather, it is important to preserve your body temperature from prolonged exposure to water and windchill. Preventing the continual loss of body heat saves your valuable energy supplies, which are far better deployed at working hard and having fun on the water!

The Z-Skin Top is made with an ultra-thin 0.8mm smooth skin neoprene torso, together with Zhik's breathable XWR™ 4-way stretch water repellent fabric in the shoulders and sleeves with high stretch flatlock seams. The combination allows ultra-high levels of manoeuvrability and importantly provides UPF 50+ sun protection too.

RRP:

Available in black, men's size M - XXL
€169.95; £149.95; US$189.99; AUS$249.95; NZ$279.95
