Family Favourite

The flex force has been a firm favourite, and gets worn most of the year. Team was super helpful in answering questions about sizing and super fast delivery time.

Spot On!

Used the Flex force 1.5mm top at the recent UK Moth Nationals. Cool water and plenty of wind but toasty and comfortable without the bulk of similar tops.

Great product Great service at Warriewood Vaikoby.

We bought my son a flex top and a thermal and put them to the test. My teenager entered the 4 day 'Sail Sydney’ regatta in early Dec 21. It was unseasonably cold and wind velocity was near maximum for the 29er class. His helm had the shivers and chattering teeth and my boy was toasty warm. The shop staff really knew what they were doing - they had the right size and type of fabric for the job within 5 minutes. It was the most efficient shopping experience at a good price. Well done!

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.
