It's the best part of the day, but it's also the coldest. Paddling out for a dawn session at the top of the point, the new Water Heater Hooded Vest keeps you warm and happy in the water while those chilly fall winds swoop out to sea. Designed to be worn under a wetsuit, it provides supplementary warmth for your head and core, extending any wetsuit's thermal range. Made from high-quality neoprene that meets our rigorous standards for strength and stretch, the vest fits close to your body while allowing full freedom of movement in the water. The hood has a warm and quick-drying micro-grid thermal lining (made with 67% all-recycled polyester content); the body has a high-stretch 100% recycled liner; and the entire garment has an exterior made of water-resistant, durable 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex. An outer neck baffle sits over the wetsuit neck to prevent water entry and the adjustable face opening has a cinch-locking elastic cord. Seams are glued and blindstitched for durability and comfort.
