Quicksilver releases new Cypher heat vest

Mark Healey doing his thing

This may be ‘the ticket’ for our winter months when getting between the comfort of your warm car and the line-up is more than a frigid and depressing ordeal.  It may also be a great way to save some major $$$ versus buying a Rip Curl H-Bomb at around $800.

This new product by Quicksilver will retail for around $200 to $250 dollars and may keep you just as warm.

Either way here’s the news from the horses’ mouth:

The Cypher Heat Vest provides battery powered heat and a lightweight thermal layer to warm your core and extend your session.

The heat system is incorporated into a .5mm polypropylene vest allowing freedom of use under any wetsuit.

The controller can be operated through any suit and utilizes vibration pulse feedback to let the user know when the heat vest is turned on or off.

Rechargeable battery provides 2.5 hours of full heat. If switched on and off, the battery will have no problem lasting any marathon winter session.

– Impact resistant waterproof design.
– Flexible heating pads with high and low heat settings.
– Comes with both car and wall battery chargers.
