Argonaut 2.0 Drysuit

Argonaut - The Adventurer's Drysuit

Argonaut 2.0 is the new pattern of the award winning Argonaut Drysuit that has been developed for the BIOMAP system. At the heart of this design process was the quest for improved mobility, stronger construction, greater streamlining, easier gas management, lighter weight and easier donning and doffing, but most importantly, the introduction of an improved women’s pattern, that fits beautifully.
The result is a suit which performs superbly, produced using a system to confidently size customers, or to produce a made to measure drysuit.

Ergonomic design along with a telescopic torso allows maximum comfort and range of movement whether diving in conditions of extreme cold, using multiple thermal layers, or with lighter undersuits in warmer waters.
When you need the confidence that your suit combines years of manufacturing, design and diving experience to deliver ultimate performance, look no further.
Achieves European Standard EN 14225 - 2: 2005 for Drysuits in accordance with E U Directive 89/686/EEC.
The Argonaut is available in a Flex trilaminate or Hybrid suit which has a Flex trilaminate on the bottom half and a lightweight, breathable Kevlar upper half.

Halo3D Undersuit - Biomapped Thermal Protection

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.

Testimonials:
  • This is absolutely the best under suit I have ever tried. I went diving, first in 2°C 36°F Silfra in Iceland for 48 min cave dive then in the ocean for 54 min. I was still warm and by the time I got all the gear off I was sweating and drove home on my t-shirt and shorts with no heating on in the car. What a miracle under suit this is!   Anna Maria Einarsdottir, Master Scuba Diver Trainer.
  • Best underwear I have used. 5°C 41°F with nothing but halo and was incredibly warm. The chest and front insulation really was ingenious. Seriously, I think it is one of the better dive related products to come out in a while. Evan Kovacs, Technical Diver and 3D filmmaker, Woods Hole Oceanograhic Institute.
  • The water was 7°C 45°F and everybody was freezing their butts off except me in my nice warm new halo. That undersuit is amazing....   JP Bresser GUE Instructor of the year 2010

Fourth Element Arctic Expedition - Extreme Performance Undersuit

The ARCTIC EXPEDITION brings our knowledge of performance fabrics and biomapped design together to create a new undersuit in our EXPEDITION SERIES. Using strategically placed additional layers of high density fleece and wind and waterproof fabrics to protect critical areas of the body that experience greater exposure during the dive, the biomapping technology maximises thermal protection whilst minimising bulk, allowing greater freedom of movement and comfort throughout the dive.

Enhanced insulation is provided in key exposure areas by extra layers of high-density fleece and waterproof, windproof panels. The outer fabric is protected with a ceramic print to minimize any effect of abrasion from the inside of drysuits, and waterproof fabric provides further protection to the knees and seat: invaluable when getting ready on a wet dive deck. Unique thumbloops prevent the sleeves riding up when donning the drysuit, but retract to prevent them being caught in the wrist seals. A zipped hip pocket is positioned for ease of access whilst wearing a cross zip drysuit, without needing to remove the suit and is ideal for carrying a key. Handwarmer pockets on the leggings provide added comfort. Pre-drilled for p-valves.

Fourth Element Xerotherm - Thermal Baselayer

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.

“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 base layer 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 Units.

Fourth Element J2 Baselayer

The J2 baselayer was developed for the US Deep Caving Team’s 2013 expedition to explore Cheve Cave System in Mexico. With excellent anti-microbial performance thanks to the use of silver ion technology, and outstanding wicking from a unique fabric, it is designed for extended use under a drysuit.

Performance in Extremes
Keeping the skin dry can be critical to success, whether it is staying warm, or preventing infections. The J2 base layer 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 J2 expedition.

Testimonials
  • “Thanks again for all your support. Your products saved our lives, I spent three weeks in a row once, 24h/day without any problems during [the 2013] expedition.” Marcin Gala – lead diver on the 2009 and 2013 J2 expedition.
  • “The performance was unbelievable” Phil Short – lead diver on the 2013 J2 expedition
  • “It's really a wonderful thing when a promising article of gear (or clothing) lives up to and exceeds its expectations.” Bill Stone – expedition leader

Fourth Element Proteus II Wetsuit - Improved fit and thermal performance

The PROTEUS II is a worthy successor to the original Proteus suit. Available in 3mm and 5mm thicknesses, the Proteus II is set to redefine the warmest suit in its class.

Water ingress is minimised by a number of design features. Glideskin wrist seals and the now famous hydrolock inner neck seal combine with watertight seams which are double glued, blindstitched and taped to keep the water out.

Thermoflex linings throughout the suit provide excellent comfort and thermal protection.

Additional Hexcore linings on the body core provide enhanced thermal performance where it is most needed for prolonged water exposure.
Available in 3mm and 5mm versions.

The 5mm suit is a versatile performer. With improved fit, the suit is easier to don that the classic Proteus, but its thermal performance is even better. We recommend the 5mm suit for prolonged dives in temperatures of 19C and warmer.

The 3mm suit is probably the only 3mm in the world to feature such advanced features, allowing it to perform more like other 5mm suits with greater flexibility, and less buoyancy. We recommend water temperatures of 23C (73F) and warmer, but we know of many divers who take it into much cooler waters.

Fourth Element Thermocline - Neutrally Buoyant Wetsuit

The Thermocline neutrally buoyant system represents an evolution in thermal protection, using state of the art materials to maximise performance without compromising on comfort. The Thermocline neutrally buoyant wetsuit system comprises the long sleeved top and the "explorer" giving the equivalent protection to a 3mm wetsuit but weighing less than 1kg (2.2 lbs). Thermocline also provides a solution for many people who suffer from neoprene allergies by reducing contact between the skin and the wetsuit.

Get the thermal performance of a 2mm neoprene suit, without the neoprene. This is the ultimate warm water-wetsuit. Neutrally buoyant, machine washable, breathable, lightweight and hypoallergenic, the Thermocline full suit combines our experience with high technology fabrics and design with our passion for diving to provide a more comfortable and convenient diving experience. The comfort is not limited to the dive however. The breathable fabric ensures that the wearer is more comfortable when fully kitted up and waiting to get into the water. Weighing less than 1kg, the suit is ideal for travelling divers, keen to keep baggage to a minimum. It is fully machine washable so can easily be kept fresh and clean between trips. The suit is neutrally buoyant, allowing less lead to be worn and it dries quickly, even during the surface interval. Available in Men's and Women's styles.
