Introducing Akona’s revolutionary thermal garment line: AQ-TEC. This multi-sport, thermal garment line uses the latest thermal technologies to provide comfortable, breathable, and flexible protection. The AQ-TEC thermal line combines Akona’s experience with their well-known wetsuit technology, with their passion for adventure in, on, and under the water, to produce a truly versatile, lightweight multi-piece system. Whether worn as stand-alone garments or used in combination with other pieces to achieve multiple combination possibilities, the AQ-TEC material is beyond diverse.
The AQ-TEC material boasts a patented 3-Ply Layer Technology, consisting of a 4-way stretch fabric, water resistant membrane and an inner thermal fleece lining. The AQ-TEC 4-way stretch material is durable, comfortable, easy to don and doff, all while providing a 50+ SPF UV protection. The inner fleece layer draws moisture away from the skin and wicks through the breathable membrane where it evaporates off the nylon surface, perfect for windsurfing or kayaking. In the water, the membrane traps a thin layer next to the skin and prevents colder water flowing over the body, perfect for surfers, free-divers and scuba divers. AQ-TEC is windproof, breathable, water-resistant with warming fleece, making each of its pieces ideal to pair with your usual gear.
