CLINTON, Tenn., March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Expanding its depth, Climashield® today announced an entrance into the diving market through a collaboration with Polish manufacturer No Gravity. For the first time, Climashield® will appear as part of the design for thermal suits and overalls due to its exceptional warmth, durability in extreme conditions and ability to dry quickly.
The No Gravity team, which consists of experienced divers, uses the latest technologies and materials to create products that satisfy the demanding needs of the diving community. During tests, Climashield® APEX outperformed other brands of insulation in recovering warmth and shape dive after dive. Even when used under extreme temperatures and pressure, Climashield® insulation allows for flexibility in movement and remains comfortable under the water.
“Every employee at No Gravity is a diver and every product reflects our passion for the sport and our dedication to exploration. Each component used in our products goes through rigorous testing to ensure that it increases the safety and comfort of dives,” said Rafal Chomont, owner of No Gravity. “Climashield® APEX met and exceeded our standards by holding up under the pressure of underwater conditions.”
“Climashield® is proud to partner with a company that shares our company’s performance philosophy – thoroughly testing all gear in the field to ensure that the claims made on paper live up to real life scenarios. Our insulation is engineered for explorers and adventurers like the designers at No Gravity and provides warmth that lasts, even in the depths of the ocean,” said Matt Schrantz, chief operating officer at Climashield®.
