    PWC performance clothing, Shark Skin

    I just happened to stumble into a dive shop in Memphis TN looking for some new shorts. The owner sold me on a pair of Sharkskin paddle shorts. I tried them on, and they fit OK, until I sat down, then they were absolutely wonderful. They are cut to fit in a more seated position as in a sit down PWC or kayak. They were a bit pricey, but I was informed that they are windproof and offer comparable insulation to 3 mm neoprene in a thinner lighter material that also breaths to help prevent overheating. They fit great, felt great to wear as they have a polartec type lining inside, so I pulled the trigger. I tried them out in the kayak today and feel they were worth every penny. It just so happens that I stumbled into the ONLY US distributor.

    Totally agree with you Fink. I wear the same but from hips down to ankles in winter. They're not restrictive in any way, you don't sweat and keeps you incredibly warm as that inner lining is wind resistant. Great bit of equipment IMO.

    I wish, then I might have gotten a break on the $125 price tag LOL

    I thought "yah right" when he said he was the only US distributor, but the Sharkskin website confirmed it.
