VCOLD Flex Top
"The Vcold flex top is SO comfortable! It's actually cozy to pull it on for a chilly morning paddle here on the Canadian west coast. And yet it's not hot or uncomfortable to paddle in once you get going. It has become my go-to paddling top for much of our year round SUP season. And it dries fast in between sessions as needed. If you needed one paddling top to deal with virtually everything short of frequent cold water immersion this is it." - Neil G, Canada

VCOLD Hydroflex Top
"Well designed top. I purchased this top as a gift for my husband. We live in California where the air and water are cold right now. He shared that the top kept him comfortably warm and did not chafe in anyway while he was out kayaking this weekend." - Anonymous, USA

Base Layer Top
Amazing training top. Absolutely perfect training top for mild Australian winter conditions. Feels a bit fleecy and thick once you first put it on and I was concerned I would overheat, but amazingly once you reach a comfortable temperature you don't seem to keep heating up. I don't know how it works, but it does. I got one of these to try it out and I have since bought a few more, it is my go to top for winter training. Combine it with a VDRY vest for when it is really wet or windy and you are sorted for pretty much anything. - Derek C, Australia.

VCOLD Flex Pants
"After wearing my first pair of the VCOLD FLEX pants over the past four years, I have now purchased my second pair. The pants work extremely well in cool water and cold weather. They are super comfortable and durable. I highly recommend these pants because in my opinion they are by far the best pants for any paddling activities." - Anonymous, Canada

VCOLD Flex Shorts
"Have used these shorts in all sorts of temperatures and ocean conditions in the past four weeks. They have been super comfortable and haven’t even noticed if it was cold!" - Anonymous, Australia
