Smart Design. Different from a normal wetsuit. Stand-up paddle
boarding, kayaking, and canoeing people, love this. With other
garments, people that use their arms to paddle get a
From a scuba diving point of view, we went from depth properties
and thermal properties of the garment being good and it got to a
point where it’s world beating.
When we started we took inspiration from existing wetsuits. They
used the same material on the outside as on the inside. Our first
revision was to change the material on the inside. The fit became
better and the soft, brushed lycra interior gave no rash. We used a
Tri-laminate material. The exterior is super soft lycra,
polyurethane center, and a soft fleece inner layer. This allows you
to sweat, but it also protects you from wind chill. It’s a lot more
forgiving on the shoulder area, longer in the torso, and keeps you
Everything that you do, or everything that you wear must include
room for a phone. It’s become second nature, like wearing a watch.
Phones have become not just phones. They are clocks, and calendars
too. Watersports need to accommodate phones. Otherwise, the user is
uncomfortable. We put up with it, because we want to be able to
communicate. However, the phone in your hand is unnatural for your
body. We have made accommodations for that. We included a port
because we want people to be able to use their hands. That’s where
they can put their headphones. They don’t have to hold their
Next, the angled zipper doesn’t put pressure on the Adams apple. We
wanted supreme comfort with this garment.
Lastly, it was easy to wash.

The Fiord LS it a technical lightweight top that allows for full
range of motion. It actually makes me feel stronger when paddling.
It adds compression to my upper body/core that drives my paddle
strokes. Easy all day wear. There is no uncomfortable bunching
under the arms. Simple adjustments can be made with the stretchy
material. The angled zipper and neck closure is super comfortable.
Great design! The zipper slides nicely with one handed operation
and the neck seals up comfortable with the Velcro closure. The soft
interior is very comfortable next to skin with no abrasion or
chaffing to report. The Fiord is warm. It is perfect protection for
windy and foul weather situations and can integrate nicely into
layering systems. Sheds rain water/spray and the materials dry
quickly. The drop tail design is great and I can imagine it locking
nicely with the Avon pant. There is no riding up the back while
paddling. I like the internal pocket. It fits a compact dry wallet
for a key, ID, etc. The Fiord LS is very comfortable when in use
with a PFD/Lifejacket. The
