As much as possible, Fourth Element embraces two principles; Zero Waste and Zero Plastic. They achieve this by re-purposing as much plastic as possible, whilst finding new uses for products at the end of their lives. The company has therefore carved out an environmental niche by producing "grave to cradle" 'Ocean Positive' products for scuba divers. 

We believe that this is the way,” said Jim Standing, co-founder of Fourth Element. “We are all going to have to tackle the challenges of a post covid world and one of these will be how we deal with the waste we have created as part of keeping ourselves and in particular, our frontline workers protected. We intend to play our part.”

Fourth Element launches new Glove range

You'll find four new neoprene styles in the range; 3mm, 5mm, 5mm Kevlar and a 7mm mitt. Each has been carefully considered for purpose.

The 5mm, 5mm kevlar and 7mm mitt all feature Hydrolock technology; taken from fourth element's wetsuit seals, these provide an advanced seal at the wrist for minimal water ingress.

The 3mm has been improved with addtional bartacks meaning you can cut it to your desired length and the seam won't be damaged.

Fourth Element - the UK-based thermal protection manufacturer - came up with the idea in April 2020 with the aim of lifting divers' spirits, whilst they remained at home during the first British Government lockdown.

The idea was simple. Take the best photo you can underwater in your bathtub. And if you don't have a bath, just get creative. A sink, bucket, water butt or just about anything that can hold water was perfectly acceptable.

The Xenos wetsuit line has been developed for the discerning diver who needs an easy-to-don wetsuit that performs well and looks great.

Fourth Element Xenos 7mm Wetsuit

The British manufacturer noted and liked the fast transition features of triathlon suits. This influence and fresh thinking has resulted in a wetsuit made from stretch 7mm neoprene, that is has been made "as easy as possible to get on and off". Apparently this is achieved by cut away ankles, and smooth linings in the arms and legs.

Fourth Element have extended their wetsuit range with the launch of their latest Thermocline OceanPositive suits

Fourth Element Thermocline

You can wear this next generation Oceanwear as a barrier to reduce contact between your skin and a neoprene suit, or simply replace your 2mm neoprene garment.

You’ll be environmentally responsible too – this neutrally buoyant wetsuit system is manufactured from a unique, machine washable fabric that’s environmentally friendly. The material is primarily ECONYL 100% recycled nylon. It’s sourced from ghost fishing nets and other discarded waste, and then laminated with a waterproof membrane and a thermal fleece.

AT DEMA Fourth Element stated the HALO A°R is “high performance low bulk” and their warmest undersuit to date.

Fourth Element HALO A°R Undersuit

Their initial foray was in the early noughties when the British manufacturer launched the Xerotherm. This popular two piece base layer has stood the test of time, perhaps because it is made from a lightweight, yet warm material that was originally developed for NASA. (At the time it was the lightest, warmest fabric going). Now the British manufacturer has evolved the HALO. They unveiled the A°R at the 2019 DEMA Show in Orlando with the promise that this high performance low bulk garment is their warmest undersuit to date.

Fourth Element Ellipse Dryglove System

A simple, reliable, ergonomic system, designed to provide an easy solution for dry gloves.

The ergonomic elliptical shape offers a slimmer profile whilst still allowing a larger hand to pass through.

Aligning the glove and suit rings is made easier by an intuitive key system; the gloves are attached by pressing the rings together. A robust nitrile O-ring provides a reliable seal for the gloves which will stay secured throughout the dive.

Beaches are also not necessarily a picturesque stretch of sand. They can comprise of pebbles, stones, rocks or an iron shore. (When limestone dissolves the material left can be quite rough and sharp, therefore it is called an 'iron shore').

In cooler climes we will either wear drysuits or neoprene boots to protect our feet when we are shore diving. But what is the option for our feet in a more balmy destination when you don't require a bigger bulkier boot?
