Xerotherm - è il primo strato termico di Fourth Element ideato per l'utilizzo con muta stagna.
Realizzato con Polartec® Powerstretch®, un tessuto brevettato e originariamente sviluppato per la NASA,
lo Xerotherm intrappola al suo interno uno strato di aria sulla superficie della pelle, mantenendo il corpo asciutto
e garantendo il massimo comfort in immersione.
“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.
Xerotherm - Fast Wicking Baselayer
The knit of the xerotherm fabric produces the fastest wicking effect of any of the products in the fourth element product range. Moisture is drawn out through the fabric along fine fibres and then spreads out over the outer surface. This maintains a thin layer of air (a more efficient insulator than water) next to the skin. This is so effective in the xerotherm that some wearers report experiencing minor suit leaks during the dive without even noticing until after the dive.
