The Arctic’s two layers of high insulation and low bulk fabric ensure
exceptional levels of thermal protection. Constructed with comfort
and utility in mind, the minimalist design provides outstanding
performance under closer-fitting neoprene drysuits.
In a layering system, the Arctic is also suited for use underneath
membrane and trilaminate suits. Using a combination of fastwicking, high insulation fabrics, the Arctic creates a micro-climate
around the diver, keeping the body dry and warm. A high density
inner fleece provides superior insulation, with maximum comfort
and wicking, whilst the outer layer, which has a water-repellent
finish, ensures a snug fit.
The Arctic requires less loft to perform due to more effective
management of air which is held in the fibres of the suit. Instead of
maximising the thickness of the layer of air near the skin, the Arctic
minimises the movement of air within, reducing the rate of cooling
without any risk of trapping the air and preventing its release from
the dump valve.
The Arctic retains a significant degree of its thermal performance
when wet, such that wearers have found it possible to complete
dives in relative comfort after even the most fundamental drysuit
failures. In some cases, divers have not noticed a leak in a neck or
wrist seal until after the dive, 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 was designed using high technology fabrics and has
been tested in real diving conditions from the Arctic to the Antarctic.
