Fourth Element Thermocline Ocean Positive Finsocks
Comfortable lining socks for full foot fins and neoprene boots. Constructed using flat lock stitching and fleece lined fabric, Finsocks minimize abrasion from full foot fins and allergy reaction to neoprene boots whilst eliminating the risk of sores or blisters from rubbing. Worn underneath neoprene boots, Finsocks help to keep the feet a little warmer and assist with the donning of a wetsuit by providing a low friction contact between the feet and the inside of the wetsuit. They are also ideal for children and young adults whose feet are still growing as they can help a pair of fins which are a little too large fit better and last longer.
Thermocline 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 skin and prevents colder water flowing over the body, 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 SUB30 environmentally friendly washing liquid). Store it safely with other garments and when packing for vacation there's no need to worry about potentially damaging the fabric - it can be squeezed into that last remaining space in your luggage without any worries.
*It is our experience that skin allergies to neoprene, whilst rare, are also not caused by a single compound and therefore it is difficult to be certain of preventing a problem. Thermocline has been used with a great deal of success by neoprene allergy sufferers, but it is important to consult with a doctor about any symptoms and possible alternatives.
About Fourth Element Ocean Positive
Originally Fourth Element OceanPositive products were conceived as a result of recycled ghost nets - turned into Econyl to use in our swimwear and rashguards. We believe, looking to the future, that the issues that surround the destruction of our seas go far beyond just abandoned fishing nets. Being 'OceanPositive' spans from not just what we do in the ocean but also what we do in our everyday lives.
Approximately 1.4 billion pounds of rubbish per year enters our seas. Dumped into our oceans daily, this threatens marine life, pollutes beaches and affects local tourism industries. In several parts of the world including the Gulf of Mexico and the Baltic Sea, depletion of oxygen in the water has created enormous dead zones. Imagine if below the water there was no more coral reef to explore, unique plants are dying out, wildlife is scarce and some cases, becoming extinct.
