The Fourth Element Men's Shorts are a perfect answer to the dilemma: 'What to wear under my undersuit?'. The fabric is fast wicking and whilst being ultra comfortable, the design provides the modesty required when changing at the dive site.
Coupled with the Drybase Top and Leggings, these boxer shorts make the perfect underwear combination for drysuit diving. They are a perfect alternative to cotton underwear, which tend to hold more moisture next to the skin, making it feel clammy, uncomfortable and cold. The unique Drybase material, which has exceptional wicking performance, keeps the skin dry and the diver feels much more comfortable during and after the dive.
Fourth Element’s Drybase is the ultra fast wicking undergarment system created for drysuit diving, meant to be worn underneath a thinsulate or other undersuit. It is a perfect alternative to cotton which holds moisture and perspiration more easily next to the skin, where it can feel clammy, uncomfortable and cold. The high wicking performance keeps the skin dry and the diver enjoys a much more comfortable dive. A high performing undergarments also mean that the wearer gets the most out of the performance of their undersuit.
The benefits of wearing a base layer next to the skin are not limited to the performance during the dive only. Wearing a base layer under regular clothing before the dive saves time as the diver does not need to strip off completely to get ready. It is a good way to stay warmer while preparing for the dive as well. Any perspiration and possible moisture from suit leaks will be wicked away from the skin by the base layer, making getting out of the drysuit after the dive a more comfortable and warmer experience.
