Fourth Element Xerotherm 3 Piece Set is an 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.
- Outstanding thermal performance
- Lightweight low bulk and buoyancy
- Extremely fast wicking
- Machine washable
- Performs when wet
Xerotherm Long Sleeve Top
With flat seams and a long body to ensure that no separation between top and leggings develops, the top is the ideal next-to-skin layer under a drysuit. Thumb loops keep the sleeves in place whilst donning the drysuit and should be removed from the thumb and pushed back through the wrist seals prior to diving.
These simple, minimalist leggings have been designed for maximum performance. The high waistband ensures good overlap of the top and leggings and unique foot pocket design ensures the leggings do not ride up. Flat seams provide next-to-skin comfort throughout the dive.
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.
