Zhik's new versatile Drysuit has been optimised for competitive sailing across all disciplines. Using technologies and design elements from ocean racing and athletic inshore sailing, this front zip Drysuit is lightweight, streamlined and highly durable.

Zhik have selected a three layer breathable Vecta fabric, which is 30% lighter and considerably more breathable than its predecessor. Streamlined panelling creates a low windage fit with soft latex neck and wrist seals for an excellent waterproof seal and maximum comfort.

The premium airtight and pressure resistant TiZip® zip is completely waterproof and is offset to enable free shoulder movement, avoiding bulk where a buoyancy vest and trapeze straps normally sit over the shoulders.

Inside the Drysuit, all seams are fully taped with further reinforcement on critical junctions and internal braces (suspenders) allow the fit to be adjusted.

High vis trims are used on the streamlined cargo pocket, the sleeves, along with front and back of the Drysuit to enhance low light awareness.

Anti-abrasion 450 denier fabric adds protection to the seat, knee and foot panels. This provides maximum durability for a wide variety of activities and protects from risk of puncture and wear from non-slip desks.

The Drysuit is available in Adult: size S - XL; Junior: size 10 - 14

RRP Adult: GBP £ 499.95; Euro € 549.95; US $ 649.99 (Excl Tax); AUS $ 849.95; NZ $ 949.95

RRP Junior: GBP £ 449.95; Euro € 499.95; US $ 599.99 (Ex Tax); AUS $ 749.95; NZ $ 849.95
