FOURTH ELEMENT ARCTIC LEGGINS
Arctic leggings are equipped with secure loops to keep the leggings in place when wearing the drysuit. A high waistband ensures that the separation between top and leggings is minimized. Tuck the top into the waistband before putting on your drysuit. The lower legs are single-layered to prevent excess bulk around the ankles from facilitating donning. Short and regular leg lengths are available.
The Arctic's two layers of high insulation, low volume fabric provide exceptional levels of thermal protection.
Built with comfort and utility in mind, the minimalist design offers exceptional performance under the tighter neoprene drysuits.
In a layering system, the Arctic is also suitable for use under the membrane and the trilaminate wetsuits.
Using a combination of fast transpiring fabrics with high insulation, the Arctic creates a microclimate around the diver, keeping the body dry and warm.
A high-density inner fleece provides superior insulation, with maximum comfort and breathability, while the outer layer, which has a water-repellent finish, ensures a snug fit.
The Arctic requires less loft to function due to more effective management of the air that is retained in the de fibers the suit. Instead of maximizing the thickness of the air layer close to the skin, the Arctic minimizes the movement of air within, reducing the cooling rate without any risk of trapping the air and preventing it from being released from the exhaust valve. .
The Arctic maintains its thermal performance great even when wet, so divers have found that it is possible to complete dives in relative comfort even after major wetsuit breakdowns watertight.
In some cases, divers did not notice a leak in a neck or wrist seal until after diving, such is the performance of the fourth element Arctic.
Backed by years of field testing by the Norwegian Navy, the British Antarctic Survey Dive Team, the French Marines and the Danish Navy, the Arctic has been designed using high-tech fabrics and has been tested in diving conditions real from the Arctic to the Antarctic.
