Kwark Navy Range

For many years Kwark have been making warm underwear, so called first layer, for various, very difficult conditions.

Such a specific and very demanding environment is the inside of a diving dry suit. It would seem that when it is very cold you should just wear a thicker lining, however that solution has many disadvantages.

Traditional undergarment/liners, even when made of a breathable fabric with a membrane, have to be very thick (need lining of ca. 400 g/m2 weight) to ensure a proper insulation. However that is not all because the outside layer also weights quite a lot. You also have to wear a high performance underwear. A set of such a thickness makes it impossible to move freely. You feel stiff like a dummy.

Kwark’s idea is different. Beside thermal protection they care about maximum comfort. The liners are very elastic, fit perfectly without restraining movement, there is no empty space between the fabric and the body that would need warming. All fabrics Kwark use, both for underwear and liners, fulfil requirements of high performance underwear perfectly. Thanks to no need to use an additional layer close to the body. The well fitting design takes the sweat away efficiently. Fabrics pull moisture away in a capillary way. This needs a good contact with the body – if the undergarment is loose the skin will remain wet. Kwark take the fit very seriously and the fact that this clothing needs to fit well.
