Visiting the Reed Factory
We had a lovely visit to the Reed Chillcheater factory this afternoon. We chatted with Chris Reed and the folks in the office that do such a fab job of getting our orders out to clients in a timely fashion. It was a pleasure visiting with them!
Here are a couple of shots taken by Duncan Smith this weekend showing Reed Chillcheater gear in action! Here is Duncan's blog, describing his experience this past weekend as well:
It was a fairly chilly weekend with rain and wind attempting to steal our body heat! Here is Jackie, she is wearing her tuiliq for the first time and still sorting out the fashion side of things!
We attempted to cover every available piece of skin, both ours and our clients in Aquatherm!
Here are a couple of our Favorite Reed items.
The Reed Chillcheater Tuiliq
This tuiliq is like having a paddle jacket, spray skirt and hood all rolled into one!
Its made of Chillcheater® aquatherm fabric which provides a thermal barrier similar to a traditional wetsuit, but is not neoprene, its lighter, more flexible and easier to get on and off. The smooth polyurethane outer surface sheds water incredibly quickly minimizing the effects of windchill.
The matt black finish also maximises heat absorption from the sun and coupled with body heat maintains a thin layer of warm water between your skin and the fabric.
Ultra lightweight, fast-drying,it packs up small for travelling and is more flexible than a traditional wetsuit, easy to wear a PFD over it. Stretchy and tough fabric is 20 times more abrasion resistant than neoprene. It comes in both ocean cockpit and the keyhole versions.
When you order this item you will receive a confirmation email with a measurement form since all tuiliqs are custom made to fit you!
The perfect thing to put under your drysuit! The fastest, sweat-wicking fleece in a super-stretchy, thermal material. They currently have it in a long-sleeved top, a short-sleeved top, long bottoms, shorts and a hat.
