ZhikMotion recycled tops for active lifestyles and multi-purpose layering

by Liz Rushall 10 May 2022 11:30 PDT

Designed as a warm and water repellent top for active lifestyles around water, these new ZhikMotion™ hooded tops are perfect for those in-between conditions, before you may need a jacket or thicker mid-layer. They can equally perform as a thermal base beneath other layers.

The range of women's and men's long sleeve hoodies are breathable, quick drying and have an environmentally conscious Zhik XWR™ fluorocarbon-free (PFC-free), durable water repellent coating that sheds rain droplets and splashes.

Made from ZhikMotion fabric, a 250 gsm recycled polyester fabric with integrated UPF50+ for ultra violet protection (AS 4399:2020), and a durable, abrasion resistant outer face with a soft peached feel creating warmth. The high-stretch interlock weave provides unrivalled flexibility and movement while being efficient at reducing wind chill.

These versatile Hooded Tops are shaped for movement and reduced bulk to work comfortably as part of a layering system and under waterproofs. Handy thumb loops enable easy dressing when using it under other layers.

The integrated balaclava style hood is form fitted and can be worn close around the face for full protection, or with the top of the hood pushed back so as to just protect the face and neck, preventing lip chaffing and cracking in high heat and cold conditions.
