We had a box of goodies arrive at Unsponsored HQ last week containing lots of gear from Sweet Protection.

Sweet Protection Supernova 2016 - First Look

One of the first items out of the box was the Sweet Protection Supernova 2016.

This is an update on the Supernova dry top we’ve been running with at Unsponsored for the last couple of years.

The biggest change is an update to the fabric. Gore-Tex Pro shell with Ocean Technology is now used throughout. The two drainage holes on the front of the top have also been updated.

A number of things remain the same, including:

Fully sealed seams
Polyester face fabric
Yamamoto neoprene neck
Neoprene wrist gaskets
Hook-and-loop cuff straps
Elasticized hem
Large hook and loop hem closure

This weekend was a tad warm to try out the Sweet Protection Supernova 2016 but warm weather in the UK doesn’t hold out for long.
