Fourth Element

Fourth Element Thermocline

You can wear this next generation Oceanwear as a barrier to reduce contact between your skin and a neoprene suit, or simply replace your 2mm neoprene garment.

You’ll be environmentally responsible too – this neutrally buoyant wetsuit system is manufactured from a unique, machine washable fabric that’s environmentally friendly. The material is primarily ECONYL 100% recycled nylon. It’s sourced from ghost fishing nets and other discarded waste, and then laminated with a waterproof membrane and a thermal fleece.

Fourth Element HALO A°R Undersuit

Their initial foray was in the early noughties when the British manufacturer launched the Xerotherm. This popular two piece base layer has stood the test of time, perhaps because it is made from a lightweight, yet warm material that was originally developed for NASA. (At the time it was the lightest, warmest fabric going). Now the British manufacturer has evolved the HALO. They unveiled the A°R at the 2019 DEMA Show in Orlando with the promise that this high performance low bulk garment is their warmest undersuit to date.

Fourth Element Ellipse Dryglove System

A simple, reliable, ergonomic system, designed to provide an easy solution for dry gloves.

The ergonomic elliptical shape offers a slimmer profile whilst still allowing a larger hand to pass through.

Aligning the glove and suit rings is made easier by an intuitive key system; the gloves are attached by pressing the rings together. A robust nitrile O-ring provides a reliable seal for the gloves which will stay secured throughout the dive.

Removing the gloves is a simple process, using the heel of your hand pop off one side of the glove ring to break the seal.

Fourth Element Expedition Series Duffel Bag

I was fed up with playing 'Where's Wally?' trying to spot my black mobile in my handbag. The pink cover solved this. I could find my cell in seconds because I could see it. Now Brit manufacturer Fourth Element has adopted the same thinking after getting frustrated feedback from Fourth Element team divers. It seems that the divers were just not that into hunting for black dive gear, in a black bag, in a black cave. Fourth Element's new 'Expedition Series' duffel bag is bright orange inside and out.

Fourth Element Xenos Wetsuit

You want something ridiculously easy to don when you are peeling your 3mm or 5mm suit on and off up to five times in a day. Fourth Element believe they have achieved this nirvana with the launch of their Xenos Wetsuit. This Brit based company has looked outside of the world of diving for inspiration.

Fourth Element Arctic Expedition

This bio-mapped ceramic printed garment comes in two choices; a one piece (similar in style to the HALO 3D) or the traditional two piece option. Fourth Element has advised that the Arctic Expedition should be a relatively low bulk garment.

The fabric has been resin impregnated for wear resistance, with key panels in the upper body augmented to make them wind and waterproof. Other features include warm hand pockets and a new thumb loop design.

Fourth Element J2 baselayer

The team spent days underground, therefore they needed base layers that could stand long repetitive wear without the risk of skin infections developing.

One way of reducing this risk is to keep the skin dry. The fabric has a unique knit that minimises contact with the skin, allowing air to circulate, whilst having enough fibres to wick away sweat. In addition the fabric is bacteriostatic and anti-fungal, thanks to anti-microbial silver ions embedded within the fibres of the fabric.
