X-Core provides extreme thermal protection for the body core, allowing for longer, more comfortable dives. X-Core can be worn under an Arctic, Arctic Expedition, Halo 3D or other drysuit and increases thermal protection to the point that in many cases electric heating is not required. The X-Core is best used over a lightweight base layer such as J2 or Xerotherm, but can also be worn directly on the skin to protect the core.
The combination of heavy Polartec® Powerstretch® fabric and thinner fabric in key areas to minimise bulk provides the critical core areas with the enhanced protection of X-Core, while the leggings can easily be worn under an Arctic. A lightweight waistband keeps the leggings from being too bulky at the waist, while the insulating fabric reaches just below the knees for exceptional thermal protection, especially when trimming. At the lower legs and back of the knees, the bulk has been minimised to ensure maximum freedom of movement. The quick drying fabric makes these pants an excellent layer directly on the skin or can be used with an additional base layer.
