FOURTH ELEMENT THERMOCLINE SHORTS - WOMENThermocline provides a solution for many people who suffer from neoprene allergies either by replacing the traditional wetsuit entirely or acting as a barrier, reducing contact between the skin and the wetsuit itself.* Perfect for all surface water sports as well as warm water scuba, this is revolutionary thermal protection. Lightweight, neutrally buoyant, machine washable, breathable and hypo-allergenic, the Thermocline full suit combines our experience with high technology fabrics with our passion for life in, on and under the water, to produce a truly versatile lightweight wetsuit system. The fabric ensures that the wearer is more comfortable when out of the water, during surface sports, or when kitting up for a dive. The inner fleece layer draws moisture away from the skin and wicks through the breathable membrane where it evaporates off the Nylon surface. In the water, the membrane traps a thin layer next to the body and prevents colder water flowing over the body, making it perfect for surfers, freedivers and scuba divers. Thermocline dries rapidly, often within an hour or between dives - a quick rinse and a squeeze to get rid of excess water before hanging it up inside out should ensure it is ready for your next adventure. No more smelly neoprene suits - this wetsuit can be machine washed (we recommend using our Sub-30 environmentally friendly washing liquid). Store it safely with other garments and when packing for vacation theres no need to worry about potentially damaging the fabric - it can be squeezed into that last remaining space in your luggage without any worries. Designed to be worn under a wetsuit or on their own in warmer waters, the Thermocline shorts help to increase thermal protection to the body core and can also be worn with a Thermocline top to make a lightweight shortie wetsuit. The shorts are a smart alternative to board/swim shorts as the close fitting material wont ride up under a wetsuit. Worn under board shorts, the Thermocline shorts can provide that extra thermal protection allowing you to extend your season in the water with the freedom and comfort of shorts before moving to a full neoprene wetsuit. A high back means it wont ride down when paddling or swimming. 33% Econyl® Recycled Nylon / 57% Polyester / 10% Elastane.
