Designed by Watermen in California | Warming People Everywhere since 2007
Nail this season's waterman goals with this multi-functional parka! Having a water and wind tight barrier between you and Mother Nature is the secret to a perfect day. The lightweight and non-bulky fabric pairs perfectly with our 'essentials only' design to offer up the most durable protection in any type of weather. It's extra long to create privacy while changing out of wet stuff in the parking lot, windproof to shield you from wind gusts while on a boat, wrap around your core to pre-warm before jumping in, or just throwing it over all your wet gear to protect your carseat.
When you are chasing waves, fish or goals, don't use up precious time and intensity changing out of your wet stuff OR shivering from the cold. Just wrap your raw and drained body in our signature wind and waterproof fleece and instantly rewarm in peace. Restore your core temperature and get back out there fully stoked!
- Hidden slit pockets to easily access interior for quick changes
- Extra long length to protect past your knees
- Built in neck warmer
- Front stainless steel snaps
- Machine washable
- Inner velcro pocket
- Longer back hem to "bend over with confidence" while changing

Never end the day early due to being cold ever again! Guaranteed to keep you warm and comfortable even when wet!
100% Polyester bonded fleece (PTFU) where the wind and water proof layer is inside two layers of fleece making it a one layer fabric. It is a 2-way stretch high quality material...our secret sauce.
For most men, go with your normal t-shirt or wetsuit size. This garment is designed to go over a wetsuit and give you some "space" so going up a size is not necessary if you are planning to change under it or wearing over a thick suit. Women should go down a size or two. Call us if you need help with the sizing. We love a good challenge!
Fun fact: Water sucks the heat from your body 12X faster than air. PADI suggests reheating your body after every session until sweating occurs bringing your body back to its' normal temperature. This will fend off hypothermia and keep you warm and happy all day.

FAQs for Care:
Q: Is the Water Parka machine washable?
A: Yes, but wash in cold cold water, no detergent, in the express cycle and hang dry. Do not use fabric softener. Do not use detergents with oils. Better yet, don't use detergent at all. Just rinse with a hose and hang dry. Washing incorrectly will delaminate the fabrics and void the warranty. Basically, don't wash it unless it really is dirty. Fish guts, yes! Wash it! Sand? Shake it off and maybe hose down. The less you wash, the longer it will last.
Q: What soap do you suggest I use to clean all my Surf-fur gear with if it's really dirty/smelly?
A. We suggest OXYCLEAN and also, oh yeah, OXYCLEAN. That is the only one we ever suggest. One Tablespoon of powder is enough. One of the active ingredients in OxiClean is sodium percarbonate (Na2CO3•H2O2), an adduct of sodium carbonate (Na2CO3) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). This breaks down into hydrogen peroxide when dissolved in water. These ingredients break down safely in the environment and leave no toxic byproducts. So, it's a good choice. Oxyclean.
