Kwark Navy Extreme Undersuit
The Kwark Navy Extreme Undersuit was designed following the success of the Kwark Navy Undersuit. Kwark took their successful Navy undersuit and used the same principles from the Kwark Tech Shirt and Kwark Tech Leggings of dual layering.
Kwark Navy Extreme Layering
The Kwark Extreme takes the success of the Tech series by adding a dual layer on core areas of the body. When a diver is in correct trim in the water (flat with arms in front and knees bent) the air migrates away from the front of the diver on the lower area of the arm, the chest and abdomen and thigh area. This causes these parts of the body to suffer from quicker cooling than other parts of the body. These areas are protected in this undersuit by a double layer of Kwark’s material ensuring the highest level of protection for the areas prone to less air protection. The double layer allows more air to be trapped between the layers of the material. More layers of air between you skin and the water, equals more thermal protection.
One Piece Design
This suit is designed to be a one piece suit to ensure that the body is fully protected at all times under the drysuit. The two piece undersuits have been very popular over the last 10/15 years, however, in the colder conditions this one piece design is a must.
Pee Valve Slots
Both men and women who are conducting longer and longer dives are choosing pee valve systems. The Kwark Extreme comes with two slots both left and right for the urine tube to feed through. This means you wont need to cut a hole in your toasty warm undersuit. The good people at Kwark have already thought of this. Check out our blog post about Pee Valves.
The Kwark Navy Extreme features three zipped pockets as standard. One on the left chest and one on each side of the waist. This is perfect (and incredibly useful) during the surface intervals on dives to put keys or wallets in. Please note that these zips are not waterproof and if your drysuit does leak, the pockets will not keep the contents dry. You have been warned haha.
As with any Extreme style undersuit we would strongly recommend the addition of a base layer under your Kwark Tech Shirt, Kwark Navy or Kwark Navy Extreme undersuit. The reason for this is that any base layer adds additional layering and air trapping. Base layers can be easily washed and dried quickly between diving days if required to keep your gear as fresh as possible.
