Safely through the cold season:
With the Hiko Valkyrie you can also paddle in cold conditions and are protected from cold shock due to sudden immersion in case of doubt. Please note, however:
The suit has a neoprene cuff at the neck for greater comfort when paddling. Moisture can penetrate through this over time. It is therefore not suitable for sea kayaking tours or white water. However, it is a very comfortable suit to wear when paddling on flat water tours, both on the SUP and in the kayak. We also recommend wearing a neoprene cap to protect your head in the event of sudden immersion.
Always wear a leash when paddling on the SUP so that the board stays close to you if you fall into the water. By wearing a life jacket, you ensure that you will always make it back to the surface. Practise getting out of the water and back onto the board quickly with your winter equipment - because the suit protects you from feeling cold in the water for a few minutes, but it is not made for longer stays. Depending on the insulating layer you wear under the suit and the water temperature, your body may cool down. The cuffs are latex-free and comfortable for sports, but they will let moisture through if you are in the water for a long time. It is also safer to paddle with at least two people.
Have fun with your new equipment on the water!
Presentation of the HIKO Valkyrie
How does the HIKO Valkyrie drysuit feel?
The SUP drysuit "Valkyrie" from HIKO is designed as a unisex suit. The fabric is robust yet supple, it doesn't feel
"rushed". The seams are very carefully taped and finished. The ankle cuffs ensure dry feet and make it easier to
get into the suit, as there are no cuffs to pass through. The arm cuffs are doubled. A latex cuff provides a very tight seal. A neoprene cuff is pulled over this.
The neck finish is only made of neoprene, which makes it very soft and comfortable to wear. The neck cuff is not interrupted by the diagonal zip. As a result, the cuff fits snugly around the neck and closes cleanly.
The suit keeps you absolutely dry and waterproof if you fall into the water. Moisture can penetrate through the neoprene cuff at the neck during longer periods in the water, so the suit is not ideal for extensive roller training, sea kayaking or white water. It is a very good choice for touring on SUP or in a kayak.
However, moisture generated on the inside through physical activity is reliably transported to the outside - there is no sweaty feeling even during higher activity levels.
A reliable drysuit, very well made, with an excellent price-performance ratio.
