Marine products and watersports apparel manufacturer, Typhoon International has released the next generation of its flagship drysuit, the PS440 2.0.

The new version of the PS440 introduces a double layered, large front chest kangaroo style pocket with two zipped side pockets which are integrated into the panelling to reduce any bulk, complementing the two low-profile bellow thigh pockets. One of the thigh pockets is designated for a chart or map, incorporating a clear pouch and pen holder.

The new suit also features an upgrade to Typhoon’s zip-off collar system to make it more versatile and extend its seasonal window. The evolution of this unisex multisport drysuit offers a more streamlined and articulated fit, designed to promote greater ease of movement on the water.

In addition to the hi-vis fully lined hood which packs into the removable collar, the 2023 model of the PS440 includes IMO reflective encapsulated patches across the shoulders as well as other reflective logos across the suit, which Typhoon says will enhance visibility at night and in low-light conditions when illuminated.

With 1000-denier reinforced nylon seat and knees offering superior durability in high usage areas, seat protection and comfort is further enhanced with removable neoprene seat inserts, said to be ideal for long paddles or lunch on the rocks.

The jacket has internal elastic drawcord pullers at the hem while the internal braces have a chest strap for added comfort and support. The suit is finished with Glideskin cuff and neck seals and fabric socks. 

“Our PS440 has been a firm favourite in our drysuit range for people participating in many different watersports,” says Amy Grealish, marketing and communications manager at Typhoon International. 

“Using our many years of experience manufacturing drysuits and watersports garments, the 2.0 version of the PS440 builds on the quality of the drysuit, enhancing it with both safety and utility features, offering the watersports enthusiast fully functional thermal protection while out on the water.”

The PS440 2.0 comes in red/black and is available in sizes from small to XXL.

Typhoon has recently announced it will be exhibiting at the RYA Dinghy & Watersports Show for the first time in February 2023 as well as continuing its sponsorship of the 29er UK Class Association for another year.
