Aesthetically Pleasing: Couple This Suit With Your High Performance Or Resin Tint Vessel
Because subtlety equals versatility!
Or NCHE’s Winetaster 3/2 (Shop now)
Perhaps it was because someone had commented around our beachside campfire that it suited him, but Jack Lynch wore the wine-coloured NCHE the most – even after we’d captured all the shots of him we needed.
Though, with its lack of graphics, subtle features and detailing, it’s hard to imagine it not working with any surfer’s look.
With Jack’s penchant for single-fin vessels, groovy outlines and coloured resin craft, something felt right with their partnership, as the NCHE is friendly to the alt and high performance world alike, and a monochromatic world is a dull world!
So aesthetics aside, during its time in the field, Jack noted the suit’s weight.
There’s no heavy lining across the chest, trading heat retention for a lightweight skin and a broader range of movement, whether it be a jive off the top or twisting off an end section.
However, it’s not like they simply stripped the fur out of this one. The NCHE has limestone ‘N Foam’ and a plant-based internal lining comprising charcoal & bamboo –for Chrissakes, the thing’s vegan!
