ARCTIC ONE PIECERegular price $409.00
FOURTH ELEMENT ARCTIC ONE PIECE
Probably the best-selling thermal undersuit in the world. Now available in a simple one piece option.
Featuring the innovative two-layer technology pioneered by the Fourth Element, One Piece Arctic offers a simple solution to the challenges of thermal protection.
The Arctic's two layers of high insulation, low volume fabric ensure exceptional levels of thermal protection.
Built with comfort and utility in mind, the minimalist design offers exceptional performance under the tightest fitting neoprene drysuits.
In a layering system, the Arctic is also suitable for use under the membrane and trilaminate wetsuits.
Using a combination of fast-wicking 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 suit's fibers. 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 dry suit failures.
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 under diving conditions royals from the Arctic to the Antarctic.
