Superstretch 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.
Superstretch Aquatherm fabric has slightly more stretch than the basic Aquatherm® but has all the same qualities. It was developed for use in garments where 100% stretch was needed in all directions. Paddlers and watersports users need to remain warm and dry, in a whole range of conditions. This fabric allows them to also use their full range of movement within their activity. The freedom of movement attained with this fabric is markedly more than with traditional, bulkier neoprene and woven laminated cordura style garments. Reed® wanted to develop lightweight garments where "The garment was working with the athlete, unlike available heavier fabrics, where the athlete is having to work against the garment". Aquatherm and Superstretch Aquatherm have neutral buoyancy.
