Neilpryde Sailing Elite Team Pryde Neoprene Hoodie 2013

or for those of you who are looking at getting much wetter and need to be fully kitted out for a long day on the boat. The last thing you need is inferior equipment –  so for the best performance drysuit on the market, and for supreme flexibilty, we would recommend the NEILPRYDE SAILING ELITE 3D CURVE DRI SUIT 2013.




– Quad 4×4 stretch breathable fabric
– Body mapping pre-bent shape
– Glideskin neck and cuff seals with covers
– Self fabric 3D sock
– 3D CURVE metal dri zip with zipped protective cover
– Fleece lined roll down necr warmer

NeilPryde’s Elite 3D CURVE series Dri suit is probably the most comfortable, high performance Dri suit on the market today. For those sailors who have always found conventional Drisuits cumbersome and restrictive, think again! The Elite 3D CURVE represents a break through in Dri suit technology with revolutionary zip technology, stretch fabrics and easy donning and doffing.

The Secret is in the Zip!

The dri zip on a conventional dri suit goes from the shoulder to the top of the thigh in a straight line. On the 3D curve the zip is pre bent and curved around the waist which removes any restriction normally felt when using a dri suit, particularly when reaching forward making the 3D Curve THE highest performance Dri Suit.
