The unique characteristics of the nylon weave combined with the super lightweight neoprene rubber allows the Quantum Stretch suits extraordinary flexibility and stretch capabilities. Standard neoprene wetsuits stretch one way but not the other. This is a limitation of the laminated nylon material necessary to construct a durable wetsuit. Through years of research and engineering, the neoprene experts have developed a four-way stretch nylon weave capable of withstanding the harsh elements of diving. The closely guarded, unique lamination process and a strategically designed pattern matched with lightweight, limestone based neoprene is the science behind AKONA Quantum Stretch wetsuits. The most comfortable and best fitting wetsuits in their class.
