The DGX All-Weather Sports Parka is the ideal cover-up for any watersports activity. It is made from a durable yet lightweight 100% polyester fabric that is ideal for a marine environment. Polyester is the workhorse of the workout fabrics, the one you see on labels most often, it's durable, wrinkle-resistant, lightweight, breathable, and non-absorbent.

The inner lining is a soft fleece-like material that provides warmth and comfort. We include a unique waterproof YKK zipper pocket inside the left chest area that is { 8 in x 5 in | 20 cm x 12.7 cm} and appropriate for a phone (even the "plus" size phones) or wallet and keys if needed.

The two outer side pockets have a reach-through design (to the inside of the parka) that allows the user to disrobe and change as needed in public yet maintain the level of privacy required.

For the front closure we have used the time tested Frog Fastening style that offers a secure option with absolutely 100% corrosion free design that will never fail in a salty marine environment.

How do you stay warm in a neoprene wetsuit? Take it off.

Unless you are in an oppressively hot climate, continuing to wear a wetsuit after the dive is robbing you of body heat without you even realizing or feeling the loss. This is because a neoprene wetsuit that is still wet is effectively functioning as an evaporative cooler. As the moisture from the surface of the wetsuit evaporates this process will draw heat away from the skin. Yet because the water closest to your skin is being warmed by your body, you do not feel colder even as your core body temperature is gradually dropping. Even in the summer, we've seen divers standing on the boat deck still wearing a wetsuit after their dive actually start shivering even though they are no longer in the water and should be getting warmer not colder.

The best solution to getting warm is to remove your wetsuit and dry off, then put on warm clothes or a coat. Drying your hair and keeping a hat or towel over your scalp will help too, although losing the most body heat from your head is just a myth. The most important factor to keep in mind is the wetsuit that is still wet is not acting as an insulator when no longer in the water, regardless of how it might feel. We understand you don't want to take it off because it will be unpleasantly cold when you have to put it back on for your second dive, but that just helps prove our point about evaporative cooling. A compromise solution is to put something on over the wetsuit to reduce the evaporation, such as a jacket or boat coat.
