Fourth Element Expedition Duffle

$129.00$159.00

Inspired by discussions with some of our more intrepid dive team members who reported that looking for a piece of black dive kit inside a black bag is never easy, but even more frustrating if you are at base camp in a cave system. We developed the fourth element Expedition Series Duffel Bag as a solution to this problem.

The orange colour makes it easier to find your kit, bright enough to be found more easily in low light conditions and distinctive enough to stand out amongst the bags of your fellow divers.

The bag is made from tough and enduring heavy-duty mesh PVC and the base is double lined for durability.

It comes with shaped and padded rucksack carry straps and high quality clasps. Buckles and compression straps complete a rugged specification.

A removable ID card makes it even easier to label and identify your gear.

Fourth Element 3mm Gloves

$65.00

The secret to a great dive can be as simple as having warm hands and the dexterity to be able to use your camera or feel your valves for a shutdown. Fourth Element’s 3mm and 5mm wet gloves and 4mm and 7mm mitts use stretch neoprene with glued, stitched and welded seams to give a close fit that almost eliminates the entry of water, whilst maximising flexibility and warmth. The carbonite print on the outside of the glove provides good grip and improved durability. The glove liners are designed to work underneath dry gloves or wet mitts offering an additional layer of thermal protection and the Xerotherm wrist warmers were developed to provide an air gap for allowing air to move from the dry suit into the glove and provide thermal protection where it is otherwise difficult to achieve. The 5mm Kevlar gloves are designed to take a beating with fingertips covered, but still offering a surprising amount of dexterity from a Kevlar reinforced glove. Fourth Element supplies the Kevlar gloves to ‘ghost fishing’ net clearance teams all over the world as a means of supporting their work to rid the oceans of this form of plastic pollution.

New for 2018, the Xerotherm glove is an alternative dry glove liner which maximises low bulk thermal protection with outstanding dexterity.

Fourth Element Proteus II Ladies

$570.00

ADVANCED WETSUIT TECHNOLOGY

The highest performing 5mm wetsuit in its class according to independent testers. The Hydrolock neck seal minimises water ingress combined with the Hexcore thermal lining to maximise warmth.

The Proteus II is arguably the highest performing wetsuit on the market. Available in 5mm the Proteus II is often the benchmark to which other suits are compared in terms of warmth.

By combining the now famous Hydrolock inner neck seal and Glideskin wrist seals, water ingress is minimised. Seams are double glued, blind stitched and taped to provide outstanding thermal protection throughout the dive. Additional Hexcore linings on the body core provide enhanced thermal performance where it is most needed for prolonged water exposure.

Our warmest undergarment, equivalent to a 400g thinsulate with less bulk due to body-mapped insulation and strategically placed compression-resistant Spacetek material in key exposure areas to maximise insulation when diving in horizontal trim.

Maximising thermal protection whilst minimising buoyancy, the Halo 3D has body-mapped insulation, strategically placed to enhance protection when in horizontal trim. Designed for use underneath membrane and trilaminate dry suits.

Convenient zipped sleeve pocket, full length double-headed zip with internal and external zip cover, thumb loops to aid donning, secure foot stirrups to prevent legs riding up, simple one piece design, machine washable and quick drying.

Fourth Element Xerotherm Set

$339.00

THE ULTIMATE THERMAL BASELAYER

The fastest wicking thermal baselayer on the market, tried and tested in some of the most extreme environments on the planet. The xerotherm is specified by the FBI and many other professional dive teams.

 

Updated for 2018 with new men’s and women’s fits. 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 represents the ultimate in baselayer performance, unrivalled by anything else on the market. Since Doug’s testing, the Xerotherm has been to the top of Everest and down to the Titanic, as well as being specified by the FBI Dive Teams, Norwegian Navy and British Police Diving Unit.

Fourth Element J2 Baselayer

$273.00

EXTENDED BASELAYER PERFORMANCE

Baselayer protection for extended range diving. Developed using antimicrobial silver ion treatments, this fabric was tested in the extreme environments of the J2 cave system, one of the deepest in the world. It is stretchy, warm, and won’t let you down.

With excellent anti-microbial performance thanks to the use of silver ion technology, and outstanding wicking from a unique fabric, the J2 baselayer is designed for extended use under a drysuit.

Keeping the skin dry can be critical to success, whether it is staying warm, or preventing infections. The J2 baselayer was designed to wick perspiration away from the skin and maintain a dry zone next to the skin. Air is a better insulator than water and consequently, the baselayer ensures better thermal protection.

The J2 baselayer system takes this performance further with tried and tested anti-microbial silver ions embedded within the fibres of the fabric. This enables long, repetitive wear without the risk of skin infections developing – something which was critical on the US Deep Caving Team’s 2013 expedition to explore the Cheve cave system in Mexico, for which the J2 was specifically developed.

The J2 wicking performance also comes into its own when the fabric gets wet. Water is wicked away from the skin, and with the right combination of drysuit underwear, further away though the fibres of the undersuit. Even in the event of a suit flood, the J2 will retain some of its performance.

Silver ions are incorporated into the fibres when they are manufactured, ensuring that the bacteriostatic and anti-fungal properties of the fabric last. This cannot be washed off. The silver ions prevent the formation of bacterial cell membranes, preventing most bacteria from growing in the fibres of the garment. However, this will not adversely affect the naturally occurring bacteria on the skin itself.

Fourth Element X Core

$180.00

EXTREME THERMAL PROTECTION

Our answer to the electrically heated vest or undergarment. Utiltising the body’s own heat output and retaining it, weight for weight the X-Core is our warmest undergarment yet. Pair it with an Arctic, Halo 3D or Arctic Expedition to experience warmth without batteries or wires

The physiological response to cold stress is to reduce blood flow to the periphery and look after the body core, where it can often just be a matter of time before cold becomes the limiting factor in the safety and enjoyment of a dive. X-Core provides extreme thermal protection to the core, enabling longer, more comfortable dives.

Designed to be worn under an Arctic, Arctic Expedition, Halo 3D or any other drysuit undergarment, X-Core augments thermal protection to the extent that electric heating can be avoided in many instances. It performs best over a lightweight baselayer such as J2 or Xerotherm but the X-Core can also be worn as a next-to-skin garment for critical core protection.

OceanPositive:

More than 8 million tonnes of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year, endangering marine and bird life and creating almost unfathomable areas of pollution, from local water courses to vast plastic gyres. Reducing the plastic we discard is part of the solution to improving the health of our oceans.

X-Core is made with REPREVE® – a fibre that is made from recycled post-consumer waste, including used plastic bottles. Plastic is removed from the waste stream and prevented from reaching the ocean. 76% of the fibre composition of X-Core is recycled polyester.

The Polartec® fabric used in X-Core is manufactured to the highest environmental standards. It has Blue Sign® and Oeko-Tex® certification to indicate that harmful chemicals are minimised or eliminated and that waste water is treated to ensure its purity before being released from the factory.
