This is our favourite top! We wear this year round except on the most scorching days! In the depths of winter we might layer up with an extra thermal but generally this is the one top for year round in southern Australia.
The Adrenalin 2P Thermal Long Sleeve Top is an ideal base or thermal layer as it keeps you warm, wet or dry and dries quickly if wet. Under a cag or paddling jacket it wicks the water away. By itself it provides sun protection at 50+ UPF, with a high neck for extra protection. It is also effective against windchill, though we recommend a cag/paddling jacket be worn on windy days.
We like the yellow colour for its high visibility, as you can see from the photos it really stands out!
The 2P Thermo Shield fabric has 170% 4-way stretch, being composed of Polyester and Spandex. It is designed to be relatively form fitting and doesn't sag if wet. As well as for kayaking, this top is great for other watersports - boating, fishing, surfing, as well as climbing and snow sports.
Adrenalin is a 100% Australian owned company.
Prevents you getting cold...
I wear this all the time now. After getting wet wearing another top (Helley Hanson) I became cold after thirty minutes, even though it was the height of summer. Whilst wearing this beaut top, even though I'm soaked, I don't get cold. Also I can stay in the water longer to practice my unassisted re entries.

Great for colder kayaking
Winters in QLD are not as severe as in southern climes, however, it can still be very cold and uncomfortable when paddling. This product has enabled me to be on the water and remain warm and dry, despite the spray and wind. Although form-fitting, it does not impede paddling action in any way.
