Get the legs out!

Summer is fast approaching. The warm winter and very mild spring we are having makes us think we are going to have a scorcher of a summer!

Good job there is some awesome new leg wear about.

The Palm Horizon Shorts replace the Gradient shorts. Not a direct replacement as they have a stretchy fleece lining not neoprene. The general consensus is that the stretchy fleece lining is more comfortable in warmer weather and when wearing for longer durations. Its not as clammy and allows the skin to breath.

The waterproof outer shorts keep the worst of the wind/ spray/ waves off and keeps the wind chill to a minimum. A nice high and soft neoprene waist band with tie up closure keeps the shorts from falling down.
The below the knee fit keeps things styling nicely. Available in Aqua Blue or Jet Grey at a reasonable price of £54.95

If shorts aren't your bag or you just want a closer fit and a bit more warmth then the new Palm Kaituna and Wairoa Neoflex pants are just the thing. 

Both of these pants are a 0.5mm 4 way stretch with a thermospan liner. The fit is 3/4 length and comes to just below the knee. 
These pants are ace, so stretchy and soft to wear. If worn in combo with the Kaituna or Wairoa top (short or longsleeve) they make a great alternative to a summer wetsuit. 
They have so many applications. Stand Up paddle boarding, board surfing, sit on top paddling, summer white water, open canoeing, sea paddling, in fact we can't think of an activity that involves water (of a slightly warmer type) that these pants wouldn't work for. Both of the Palm Neo Flex 3/4 pants are £59.95.
Don't forget they do short and long sleeve tops as well: 

Palm Wiaroa

Palm Kaituna

Its not just Palm on the leg wear frontier! 
The Sweet Shambala Shorts have been selling really fast. Why? Because they are awesome of course!
They have had some updates for this year. The neoprene inner short is now just below the knee and a nice snug fit at the cuff. This stops water jetting up the leg even if you take a swim. The fast drying outer has a really nice cut and is a good length, it comes to below the knee for that cool look. A pocket on the leg can house your car keys (no more hiding them under the wheel arch). The waist band is comfy and holds the shorts up well. These are perfect for board surfing as well.

So that's the newer stuff. We of course still have a good selection of neoprene shorts, 3/4 length neo pants and full length neo pants from Peak UK. All of these are perfect summer leg wear. Come into the store and see what fits you.
