Eco Spandex - The Recycled Rashie

by Liz Rushall 3 Jun 01:22 PDT

For sailors who care about the environment, Zhik have added to their ecological performance wetsuit range with the launch of the ECO Spandex Top.

Made from 100% recycled materials, these long-sleeved tops are worn as a rash vest. With UPF50+ sun protection and a raised collar for neck protection, they work well either under your ECO wetsuit, or as a top in its own right in warm conditions.

This soft, high stretch and durable fabric is made from PET yarns constructed entirely from recycled and reclaimed PET plastics (often used for food and drink containers).

Zhik use a 3D form fitting process that shapes the tops for improved fit and enables a full range of movement. Strong, stretch flatlock stitching ensures no chafe from the seams.

RRP:

  • £49.95
  • US $59.99
  • 59.95
  • AUS $85.00
