Kwark Navy Undersuit
The Kwark Navy Undersuit has been specifically designed for use with trilaminate drysuits. It is ideal for very cold waters such as those in the UK in winter and spring. The material was produced on special order from the U.S. Army Special Forces Divers, in order to meet all the required parameters for long-diving in cold waters. Thermally the Kwark Navy undersuit is equivalent to traditional warmers based on Thinsulate weighing about 400g/m. However the Kwark Navy Undersuit has many advantages, about which users of such conventional warmers can only dream of.

There is no limit to number of washing, it can be spin-dried. Tailor-made durable flat seams provide comfort. It is soft and pleasant to the touch. It does scrub or irritate the skin.
The Scuba Leeds team have been using the Kwark Navy Undersuit, Kwark Navy Tech Vest and Kwark Navy Socks and have found them to offer superior warmth and flexibility. Many of the team commented that they were surprised how much warmer they were than with their previous undersuits. Indeed we also noticed that due to the material composition they were all able to reduce the amount of weight they used and had no issues with the undersuit getting caught in the dump valve, allowing fast dumping of gas from their drysuit.
