Flesh Aquatherm® fabric has been developed to enable Film and TV actors to remain warm and dry, in a whole range of production conditions. It is a nude lightweight fabric that offers great freedom of movement, far more so than with traditional, bulkier neoprene and woven garments. We understand that it is essential that this thermal garment remains discreet under a costume. This fabric works 'with' the actor or stunt double, unlike alternative neoprene fabrics, where the wearer is more often working against the bulkiness of the garment. Flesh or Nude Aquatherm is less than a millimetre thick and remains stable, flexible, strong and waterproof when fully flexed. Also, 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. Flesh Aquatherm can be washed in a washing machine. See, 'How to look after my Chillcheater.'
