New Typhoon PS220 immersion suit now in.

New in the shop this month is the Typhoon PS220 Xtreme immersion suit.

The PS220 is designed with sea kayakers in mind. The PS220 Xtreme is the culmination of several years research into making suits to cope with the most extreme conditions found in the worlds oceans. The prototype designs and fabrics were tested in the harshest of environments including the Volvo Ocean race, powerboat circumnavigations of the British Isles and Xtreme Sea kayaking in the Arctic, in order to produce the best possible combination of Durability, Performance and safety. The result raises the bar on what sailors and Kayakers can now expect from their drysuit, as well as providing a vision of extreme dry clothing of the future.

The PS220 Xtreme features; Super tough and breathable quad-ply fabric through out the suit, with Cordura reinforcement in high wear areas, like knees, seat and elbows, BDM Brass coil zips (back zip and front relief zip) ensure that the suit stays sealed in even the most extreme conditions, a 3D hood, with volume adjusters that rolls down into the collar, four pockets, including VHF/MP3 intergration point and hand warmer, Super bright 'glass bead technology' reflective wrist print and SOLAS reflective tape for great visibility, extra long lower leg outers mean that you can wear wellies, or tall boots like the Palm Kola boot, internal braces and glide skin seals at the wrist and neck for durability and comfort even when used in salt water.

The PS220 will appeal to all kinds of paddlers, Sea kayakers will love the comfy seals and VHF intergration. The tough and breathable fabric is ideal for instructors, or anyone who spends lots of time in their paddling gear. And the styling is spot on for the fashion conscious! You don't need to be a sea kayaker to get the most of the PS220, the comfy seals and tough fabric are ideal for any paddler, river, sea, touring, fishing and whitewater.
