Edge Armor Skin top

Postby gozokiteboarding » Wed Feb 28, 2018 11:56 pm

Has any one every used one? I hear they are a great light weight top for Florida? Also they can go over your wet suit to help keep the wind off on colder days?
Would love some feedback if anyone has tried one.

Thanks!

They are phenomenal. I have worn them as under skin as well as an outer skin depending on conditions. Very effective results because the warmth to thickness ratio is huge.

They are nice for foiling as they reduce that evaporative heat loss that can cut into how long you feel comfortable.

I love mine, wear it solo, wear it over my 2/1 top, wear it over my 5/3 and also over my 6/5.

I used to use a Promotion ExoSkin before it, but since getting it I haven't gone back to the promotion.

They also have a woman's version now too.

Be warned that it fits very small, I'm 5'10" 165 lbs and large is a bit snug.

I wish they would make a baseball sleeve version, once I buy a replacement I'm going to cut my old one down to elbow length.

Great product! Like the previous posts, I wear it in warm environments for wind and sun protection. In cold water applications ,I put it over my wetsuit and it cuts the windchill down quite a bit. You will be very impressed with the performance of this product.

One of few kiting products I don't regret a single penny I spent on it. It just works, packs tiny, looks quite durable (just don't jam it in the zipper :evil: ) :thumb: :thumb:

I don't understand, is it a neoprene? Is it a compression thingy? I'm already using a full body compression in the summer so how would this differ?

Cheers
