Last weekend was the first time I've dusted off the Superwarm to go sailing this year, I had my Zhik Superwarm Skiff suit on during bank holiday Monday sailing as the temperature had dropped, it was windy and there was plenty of spray across the River.
Earlier in the year Zhik introduced their new Superwarm ranges and we were excited to be one of the first retailers in the World to showcase the sailing wetsuits and tops at the RYA Dinghy Show.
The release was a big change for the popular Zhik Superwarm and Zhik Microfleece wetsuit ranges with the introduction of an X and V version splitting the target market down the middle.
We won't go into detail here but you can read all about X vs V on an article from earlier in the year - https://www.sailingchandlery.com/x-vs-v-new-zhik-wetsuits.html
As a quick overview, X is the standard specification we've come to love from Zhik and V is a more budget wetsuit with less features, still a great product. You could also think of X as a championship product and V as a club sailor product. If you've had a Superwarm product before 2018 then you should go with X.
If you've not worn a Zhik Superwarm product before you're probably wondering why you should buy one. You might also be looking at the price tag thinking it's more expensive that other wetsuits.
Here are some reasons you should buy:
In terms of the most popular Zhik Superwarm products, in 2017 we saw a clear patten that for every four skiff suits we sold a top. The skiff suit is by far the most popular Zhik Superwarm product and that continues today but is balanced across the X and V range with the Superwarm V slightly ahead.

Now here is a Superwarm product you should definitely have, these winter sailing gloves were due earlier in the year but we didn't get them until May missing the colder months.
Zhik Superwarm Gloves are going to fill a huge hole in the market of a glove that's warm, keeps water out and has superb grip.
We love these and think they'll start flying off
the shelves very soon as the weather starts to turn.
Here is a closer look at some of the features.
Zhik Superwarm X tops can add an extra layer of protection against the elements, they're great at keeping the spray and wind out and will happily sit over the top of a skiff suit to complete your package.
