Hydrophobic tops have been around for quite a while now and are great because they do a fantastic job at repelling the water away from your skin and keeping you protected from the cold water. However the standard hydrophobic tops in the market tend to be quite stiff and uncomfortable for high activity sports. They also tend to also not be that breathable which is critical when training or racing in high activity ocean sports.Enter the Vaikobi VCOLD Hydroflex Top!
The VCOLD Hydroflex top differs from all other Hydrophobic tops in its overall weight and construction. Using a hollow yarn fabric that is super stretchy and light to wear, the VCOLD Hydroflex Top is able to trap a significant amount of warmth relative to its overall weight. In addition, the super soft plush lining feels so nice next to your skin and will get you excited about hitting the water no matter how cold it is out there!
Importantly, the Hydrophobic Treatment on the outer stops water attaching to the top meaning that you will stay dry and warm for longer than you would in our standard VCold Base Top.
Featuring Vaikobi's trademark side mesh breathable panels, this top is all set to control your body temperature for maximum performance in cool to cold conditions.
- Super light weight and stretchy VCOLD Hydroflex fabrication
- Hollow yarn for increased thermal regulation for its weight
- Hydrophobic treatment to stop water from attaching to the top
- Highly breathable whilst retaining maximum thermal performance
- Breathable mesh side and underarm panels
- Performance fit for maximum comfort

Q&A?, see here below:
Q: What are the special features that set the Surf-fur Waterparka apart from other dive/swim parkas and boat coats?
A: The Waterparka, which has a design that is uniquely ours, is made of specially engineered fabric just for our designs. The cool-looking, reversible, hooded coat is completely wind and waterproof. The garment’s long, generous cut allows people to change in and out of their wetsuits, swimsuit and other apparel comfortably and in privacy. The coat has “Zen” changing pockets which allow the wearer to reach through and pull down suits or pull up pants. The Surf-fur is machine washable, and has stainless steel reversible snaps.
Q: How do I figure out my size?
A: Whatever size you normally take in a t-shirt would be your size. All of our products are true to size. This being said, they are meant to be roomy, so if you like your clothe to fit, go down a size and you'll be fine. You can also check out our sizing chart here on the pictures.
Q: Is the Water Parka machine washable?
A: Yes, wash in cold water, no bleach, in the express cycle and hang dry. The more you wash it, the softer it becomes. The softer it becomes the more you need to wear it. …it’s a vicious cycle! Do not use fabric softener.
Waterproof Parka Technology
Detailed description of our fleece fabric….
Our fleece that goes into every Boat Coat, Swim Parka and Dive Parka we make is made exclusively for our use according to our exact specifications. Fleece is a soft, lightweight, warm and comfortable fabric. It is hydrophobic, holding less than 1% of its weight in water, it retains much of its insulating powers even when wet, and it is highly breathable. Made from 100% polyester, which is usually recycled materials, it is one of the most technical fabrics on the market. Surf-fur fleece gives the wearer maximum protection from blustery conditions in a lightweight packable fabric. These fabrics combine the warmth of fleece with a
100% windproof, waterproof, breathable barrier, eliminating the need for a windbreaker or other additional shell. It is a good alternative to wool.
More information for the Scientists….
If it is breathable, how is it waterproof? Well, the fabric is actually two layers of fleece bonded together by a membrane called Polytetrafluoroethylene, or PTFE, which allows a small amount of air through the fabric (15cfm) to substantially improve breathability, without significantly compromising the fabric's warmth, reducing the tendency for heat stress buildup during aerobic activities. A water resistant outer surface and an inner surface treated to wick, provide all-in-one comfort and protection.
(FYI- Light-weight fabric is approximately 315 gsm, Mid-weight fabric is approximately 341 gsm, and heavier fabric is approximately 397 gsm)
