The Hollis AUG 450 Top is our thickest two piece undersuit, utilising two layers of fleece material to provide the extra thermal protection needed for colder water conditions. The AUG 450 is ideal paired with the AUG Base for a complete layered solution beneath a membrane drysuit, offering a lightweight, low bulk, snug fitting and comfortable thermal solution. The double layer 450g/sqm material works by trapping air (which is a much better insulator) in layer upon layer and managing its movements whilst diving to help prevent heat loss. Moisture and perspiration is wicked quickly away from the skin to improve comfort and reduce the chilling effect of water on the skin.
The blend of polyester and spandex allows the top to be cut close to the body without being restrictive, providing additional stretch and flex in the panels to help maintain the fit and close contact to the skin. The panel seams are securely stitched using strong nylon thread in a flat lock stitch that prevents skin discomfort. The AUG 450 undersuit is available in both mens and womens cuts for an optimised fit.
The top is fitted with elasticated thumb loops to aid donning beneath your drysuit with the material moving and bunching uncomfortably (remember to remove and stow the loops before you dive) and a zipped pocket on the right arm. The zip slides back into a hood that prevents the zip tag from damaging your drysuit.
