Our mission at Performance Paddlesports is to offer innovative products that perform in the most demanding conditions.

Reed ChillCheater Ltd is a U.K. company that has been producing uniquely warm and durable technical clothing for paddlesports since 1999.

Reed garments are unique. They are made from fabrics that have been developed and manufactured solely for use within the Reed range. Each fabric has been designed to give maximum wearer benefits whether it be warmth to weight ratio, or stretch, comfort and waterproofing versus freedom of movement. We are proud to say that we know of no other technical fabrics that perform as well, given their comfort, weight and thickness.

Reed – Intelligent Fabrics, Innovative Designs.

For ultimate comfort whatever the conditions.

Aquatherm Fleece

Aquatherm® fleece is for the coldest conditions. A soft, warm 3mm fleece is bonded onto our durable, stretchy, polyurethane outer surface, allowing the wearer, optimum movement and maximum warmth. This fabric is also completely waterproof and windproof. The tough, abrasion-resistant outer face has a good moisture vapour transmission to dissipate perspiration when the wearer is active.

Aquatherm Fleece adds an extra 4mm distance between the wearer and the elements. It has a superb low bulk to high warmth ratio. It is waterproof, windproof, heat-retaining, stretchy and stylish.

Transpire Fleece

Transpire® fleece fabric has an incredibly comfortable, tight brush fleece on the inside and a smooth, slip knit on the outside. The fabric yarns are coated with Scotchguard®, a durable, wicking chemical, making the fleeces very fast drying and making these garments warm wet or dry. These fleeces should be worn in contact with the skin at all points to maximise the fabric’s good sweat wicking properties. The yarns are also coated with anti bacterial coating to maintain freshness. These fleeces have a weight to warmth ratio that is class leading.
