FOURTH ELEMENT ARCTIC - HIGH PERFORMANCE UNDERSUIT
Redesigned for 2024, the Arctic’s two layers of high insulation, low bulk fabric ensure exceptional levels of thermal protection. The 2024 redesign is more than just producing a more OceanPositive product. It builds on more than 20 years experience in developing thermal garments and the feedback from some of the many thousands of users of the original Arctic in the field.
The Fourth Element Arctic Socks 2024 are a crucial component to the full thermal protection system of the Arctic drysuit, providing superior insulation to the extremities without adding excess bulk. The two-layer design ensures maximum warmth and comfort, with the added convenience of being able to easily remove the inner liner for faster drying.
Constructed with comfort and utility in mind, the minimalist design provides outstanding performance under drysuits. In a layering system, the Arctic is suited for use underneath neoprene, membrane and trilaminate suits. Using a unique combination of fast wicking, high insulation fabrics, the Arctic creates a micro -climate around the diver, keeping the body dry and warm. A high density inner fleece provides superior insulation, with maximum comfort and wicking, whilst the outer layer, which has a water-repellent finish, ensures a snug fit.
The Arctic requires less loft to perform due to more effective management of air which is held in the fibres of the suit. Instead of maximising the thickness of the layer of air near the skin, the Arctic minimises the movement of air within, reducing the rate of cooling without any risk of trapping the air and preventing its release from the dump valve.
