Diving collection

For many years we 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 waight) to ensure a proper isolation. And 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.

Our idea os different. Beside termal protection we do care about maximum comfort. Our liners are very elastic, fit perfectly without restraining movement, there is not empty space between the fabric and the body that would need warming or ballast. All fabrics we use, both these for underwear and liners, fulfill requirements of highperformance underwear perfectly. Thanks to that there is no need to use additional layer close to the body. Well fitting model 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. We treat very seriously the fact that this clothing needs to fitt well. We offer a women’s line for women with curves – a well constructed shape does not flatten breasts and fits closely to the whole body. We also offer tailoring for clients of a non-standard sizes. This service is not expensive and allows to exploit fabric’s advantages fully.

Things that directly touch your body are responsible for comfort to a great extent. We spent lots of time on perfecting even invisible details to be absolutely sure that Kwark will not let you down. We have our own design studio. We use specialist sewing machines, thanks to that sews are flat and very durable. We use the best, frequently tested fabrics. And we test each of our products.

Navy Body Warmer

NAVY Body Warmer is intended for divers swimming in very cold waters, using laminated dry suits.
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, our NAVY Body Warmer is equivalent to traditional warmers based on Thinsulate weighing about 400 g / m. However, NAVY has many advantages, about which users of such conventional warmers can only dream of.

  • The primary advantage of the NAVY is its flexibility. This is not a medieval knight armor with which thick warmers are associated with.
  • It is very comfortable and gives you a full range of motion.
  • It’s easy to put on a dry suit on it, NAVY doesn’t roll up
  • Provides very good air flow.
  • It is very light, weighing less than 1.5 kg.
  • Compared to conventional warmers, allows reduce the ballast of at least 2 kg.
  • Maintains great thermal comfort, also after drenching.
  • Perfectly wicks sweat away from the body.
  • It is very well impregnated anti-bacterially and does not smell.
  • Dries up in a few hours (after complete flooding or washing).
  • 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.
  • three pockets, including one with a zipper
  • a stand-up collar doesn’t collide with an isolation near the neck
  • a fold protects from cooling down through the zipper, “a garage for the zipper” protects the neck and a flexible sleeve
  • a two-way zipper (zipping with double sliders)
  • strings allow the air to flow freely into the dry gloves
  • comfortable constrictive rubber bands in legs
  • slots for a P-valve and a heating cable – at the request with a possibility to agree on its location
  • possibility to choose a colour of the thread

Our new warmer has undergone thorough testing. Below we list a few comments from NAVY’s users:

“NAVY has exceeded the wildest expectations. Tested in difficult conditions with a wet suit, i.e. after complete water drenching during the previous dive. Very good thermal comfort.”

“NAVY is the best and the most comfortable warmer all of all which I used over 10 years of diving in dry suits.”

“Very flexible, provides unique comfort of motion in my dry suit. While I was putting it on I thought: why spend 800 PLN if I have a different warmer? After the dive, I knew that without a doubt it is worth a purchase.”

“Very comfortable, I felt nothing after drenching. Only after leaving the water I noticed that the warmer is wet. Superb!”

“Excellent thermal comfort. Thanks to good adhesion to the body, the warmer makes the air came precisely and quickly into any place under the suit. Long stay on the surface before immersion does not cause problems with sweating and the accumulation of water on the body (outside temperature of 21 degrees Celsius).”

“Does not restrict movements, about 2 kg of ballast less. Compared with the previous traditional warmer much, much better.”

“Thanks to good adhesion, thermal bridges do not occur. Very warm.”

Caps after diving

We lose ca. 30% of the heat through our heads. Just after taking off a neoprene hood a wet head gets cold very fast and cools whole body. What is worse, you can catch a cold easily and a running nose can ruin your diving plans. That is why we prepared some hats models that will work out great in various situations.

1. Double hat covering sinuses and ears – “Rycerska” is effective in winter and on cold days in fall or spring. We make it in two types: thinner version from Polartec Bi Polar (Thermal Pro series) and warmer version from Polartec Wind Pro. Last one is windproof and breathable at the same time. When there is a strong wind you can really feel the difference.

2. In summer (and for people who are warm even in winter) we recommend a hat “Profil” made of Powerstretch Pro and Wind Pro. It is light, elastic and soft. It fits well to the shape of the head. Ears are protected from wind. It is useful for running and works well under a helmet as well, e.g. for skiing or cycling.
3. Kwark’s classic model “Baran” is great too. It can be made of Polartec BiPolar (Thermal Pro series), Polartec Wind Pro, Polartec Power Stretch Pro or Polartec Windbloc. The last one has a tiny weakness – because of a windproof and waterproof membrane it is harder to hear when wearing it. We can imagine many situations when this is an advantage, however we inform you loyally… If you want to hear well you better choose a Wind Pro model.

4. A Power Stretch universal model “Mycka” is a thinner and as good equivalent. This is a small hat in a Léon’s style (the one from the film by Luc Besson). When unrolled this is a multipurpose hat, also lies well under a helmet.

About us

Company details

KWARK was founded in ’95. The name comes from “kwark” (eng. quark) – an elementary particle in physics. It is so small and unpredictable that it is not certified that it exists. Our company was just like that back then. In the first years we made caps, berets, hats and shawls. Our first goal was to make good quality products and original patterns.

A line of professional sport underwear was added to our collection in ’97. We succeeded to dress, among others, the German National Representation in Canoeing and in the Kanu Polo. In ’99 gold-winning Polish National Representation in Rowing appeared in the outfits made by KWARK on the World Competitions.

In ’99 we decided to use the experience gained from the sport market to create a new outdoor collection of women’s clothes. At the beginning it was a revolutionary idea to bring together the best principles of the fashion world (original design, beauty and womanhood) and the advanced technologies providing functionality and comfort. Each of our collections was awarded for design, originality and concept.

KWARK has became a well-known brand and is still developing. You can buy our products in many countries in Europe and the US.
Our Ideals
We stayed faithful to our ideals and values. Although it looked irrational, we insisted to produce our items in Poland. We struggled for the best, not the cheapest raw materials, we produced the best, not the bestselling products, we never gave up. KWARK is still a small company which produces unusual and unique things.

Our success lies also in the very precise selection of materials. In most of our products we use the best fabrics from a rich range of Polartec® materials. We test it carefully and check every detail.
