Description

Excellent thermal protection and comfort. Thin enough to be worn under other drysuit socks yet capable enough as thermal protection in their own right, they are comfortable thanks to the flat locked seams and fast wicking fabric.

 

The ultimate baselayer for use under a drysuit. Made using Polartec® Powerstretch® originally developed for NASA, the Xerotherm traps a layer of air - a much better insulator than water next to the skin, keeping the wearer drier and more comfortable. The range is designed to be worn under another undersuit or on its own under a neoprene drysuit.

The knit of the Xerotherm fabric produces the fastest wicking effect of any of the products in the fourth element product range. Moisture is drawn out through the fabric along fine fibres and then spreads out over the outer surface. This maintains a thin layer of air next to the skin. This is so effective in the Xerotherm that some wearers report experiencing minor suit leaks during the dive without even noticing until after the dive.

"The performance is superb". This was the reaction of Doug Allan, world-renowned and award-winning underwater filmmaker and author after testing the Xerotherm in -2 degree (29F) water inside the Arctic Circle in Svalbard, whilst shooting sequences for the BBC production The Blue Planet.

The Xerotherm is specified by the FBI Dive Teams, Norwegian Navy and British Police Diving Units.

Fourth Element

"A neoprene-free alternative to a traditional wetsuit made with recycled ghost fishing nets. Neutrally buoyant, lightweight and with a fleece lining that provides the equivalent warmth of 2mm neoprene, this is perfect for travel and tropical diving."

Sustainable

Neoprene Free

Thermocline provides a solution for many people who suffer from neoprene allergies either by replacing the traditional wetsuit entirely or acting as a barrier, reducing contact between the skin and the wetsuit itself.

Recycled Nylon

The next generation Thermocline fabric is the highest performing fabric we have ever made for this application and it feels as good as it looks, its outer layer is 78% recycled Nylon, from ghost fishing nets and other post-consumer waste. This truly is good for the ocean.

Resources

Utilising a unique fabric made using ECONYL® recycled Nylon from ghost fishing nets, laminated with a waterproof membrane and thermal fleece, Thermocline revolutionises
the notion that being environmentally responsible means sacrificing performance or aesthetics.
