The Fourth Element Xerotherm Wrist Warmer is designed to be used with dry gloves, and bridges the gap between a diver's undersuit and dry glove liner. The wrist warmer sits below the drysuit seal and allows air to equalise with the dry glove, preventing squeeze. In the case of a glove failure, the fabric is not too thick, meaning that water will not flood through the seal.
Great for Scuba Diving, Canoeing, Kayaking and Boating.
The double layer of xerotherm fabric on the inside of the wrist provides enhanced protection for an area where blood flows close to the skin surface. Hands will therefore stay warmer for longer.
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.
Xerotherm is Machine Washable
Machine wash cold. Line dry. Do not use bleach. Do not iron. Do not tumble dry. Can be dry cleaned. Avoid the use of fabric softeners.
