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 rash.

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 warm.

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 phone.

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 Enth-Degree branding makes this LS top seriously sporty- Looks Great!
