Fourth Element Undergarments

Halo Fourth Element Undergarment
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 suits, the HALO 3D is the perfect complement to our current range of drysuit thermal protection. In a layering combination with xerotherm, HALO 3D is suitable for the harshest diving conditions on the planet.

The Xerotherm is the ultimate base layer for use under a drysuit. Made using Polartec® Powerstretch® which was 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 unisex range is designed to be worn under another undersuit or on its own under a neoprene drysuit and provides astonishing warmth without contributing to bulk or buoyancy.

Thermulation Heated Vest

It is comfortable and helps keep the heat in the core of your body.
