Aquatherm® fabric has been developed to enable wearers to remain warm and dry for sport or leisure, 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 athlete, unlike earlier neoprene fabrics, where the athlete is more often working against the garment. 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.
Good for open water swimming when you don't want or need the bulk of a neoprene wet suit. Teamed with the leggings they are certainly comfortable for me down to around 14 C (and below with consistent cold-water exposure). Also good for kayaking as so flexible. Have also worn them beneath a 5 mm wetsuit for extra warmth on a dive under ice as the drysuit was not available - they worked.

Superb quality product backed up by 'second to none' customer service. A query was quickly dealt with and the ordering process couldn't have been easier. As a UK diver with a typically shaped body I wasn't sure what size would fit but a quick call led to me having one custom made and delivered the next morning. I've not had service like that when I've spent thousands!! Keep up the good work

I bought 1 of these tops 20 years ago, surfed 8 winters in Indonesia in a row, wore it under my wetsuit back home in England for 12 more years and it is still going. Just got a new one (gave my old one to a disabled friend to keep her warmer in the swimming pool) and have been wading metal detecting in Gran Canaria for a week in a tiki summer suit with my chill cheater on under it. I did 29 hours in the sea in 6 days, 5-8 am and 5-8pm most days, not even cold once. A proper legit amazing piece of kit. If you buy it you will be very happy :)
