Delivering comfort in the most challenging environments for over three decades

Proudly designed and manufactured in the UK


Our most popular garments for the film and TV industry are our Natural / Black coloured suits. These items work particularly well beneath costumes as they are thin and flexible whilst retaining body heat.Also available in Black on request.

Natural / Black / Aquatherm® fabric has been developed to enable actors and stunt doubles to remain warm and dry, in a whole range of conditions. It is a lightweight fabric that offers great freedom of movement, far more so than with traditional, bulkier neoprene and woven garments.

"It is essential that the garment is working with the actor, unlike earlier neoprene fabrics, where the actor is more often working against the garment. Our natural / black Aquatherm is less than a millimetre thick and remains stable, flexible, strong and waterproof when fully flexed. Unlike neoprene, it has the added advantage of being watershedding and fast drying, so less temperature is lost from the wet outer shell through evaporation.'
