Winter has met its match with Vaikobi's new Hydroflex Top

Winter has met its match with Vaikobi's new VCOLD Hydroflex Top

Hydrophobic tops have been around for quite a while now and are great because they do a fantastic job at repelling the water away from your skin and keeping you protected from the cold water. However the standard hydrophobic tops in the market tend to be quite stiff and uncomfortable for high activity sports. They also tend to not be that breathable which is critical when training or racing in high activity ocean sports.
 
Enter the Vaikobi VCOLD Hydroflex Top

The VCOLD Hydroflex top differs from all other Hydrophobic tops in its overall weight and construction. Using a hollow yarn fabric that is super stretchy and light to wear, the VCOLD Hydroflex Top is able to trap a significant amount of warmth relative to its overall weight. In addition, the super soft plush lining feels so nice next to skin, you will be hitting the water with a smile no matter how cold it is out there!

Importantly, the Hydrophobic Treatment on the outer stops water attaching to the top meaning that you will stay dry and warm for longer than you would in our standard VCold Base Top.

Featuring Vaikobi's trademark side mesh breathable panels, this top is all set to control your body temperature for maximum performance in cool to cold conditions.

Product Features:

  • Super light weight and stretchy VCOLD Hydroflex fabrication
  • Hollow yarn for increased thermal regulation for its weight
  • Hydrophobic treatment to stop water from attaching to the top
  • Highly breathable whilst retaining maximum thermal performance
  • Breathable mesh side and underarm panels 
  • Performance fit for maximum comfort 

Available now at your local Vaikobi Dealer and at www.vaikobi.com

Fit Tips

If one of your body measurements is in between two sizes, order the smaller size for a tighter fit or the larger size for a looser fit. If your body measurements for hips and waist correspond to two different suggested sizes, order the one indicated by your hip measurement.

How To Measure

WAIST: Measure around the narrowest part (typically where your body bends side to side), keeping the tape horizontal.
HIPS: Measure around the widest part of your hips, keeping the tape horizontal.
CHEST: Measure the fullest area of your chest. Stand up straight and breath normally.
