Body Glove Chammyz is a lightweight, recyclable garment that offers warmth in cold weather and protection from the sun. It is manufactured from all natural, recycled fibers made from tree roots, stems and bark that allow the body to breathe. Making it convenient to wear in cold as well as warm weather. Chammyz offers UVA and UVB protection and acts as a heat insulator. It also has an incomparable ability to wick water, moisture and sweat because of the process of moisture management.

“I have been using Chammyz for about 8 years now. It is the perfect product for any water enthusiast, as it keeps you warm before you enter the water and dries you off after you get out. We feel that this is an ideal partnership because Body Glove is all about watersports and this product enables comfort and convenience while participating in those activities,” states Billy Meistrell, Executive Vice President of Body Glove International
