Using the same high-density fabric made from 76% recycled post-consumer plastic waste in panels on the thighs extending to below the knees and also on the seat, the X-Core leggings place high performance insulation where it is needed. Elsewhere, lighter fabric prevents too much bulk and maximises freedom of movement, including around the waist to prevent too many thick layers overlapping.
“Extremely effective thermal protection – most noticeable in enhanced protection extending below the knees. Comfortable and the perfect addition to my thermal protection, I have never before done long dives and been so warm – especially on my knees.” Robert Lange, Test Diver.
This is the perfect addition to the thermal protection of any diver, in particular anyone already familiar with the outstanding performance of the X-Core vest. It is Fourth Element’s answer to the electrically heated vest or undergarment. Utiltising the body’s own heat output and retaining it, weight for weight the X-Core is their warmest undergarment yet. Pair it with an Arctic, Halo 3D or Arctic Expedition to experience warmth without batteries or wires.
Available in Men’s and Women’s sizes (Women’s will be available in March/April).
X-Core is part of Fourth Element’s OceanPositive collection – by using fabric made from post consumer plastic bottles, they hope to prevent plastic waste from entering the ocean. The plastic economy is one which is growing in importance, and being part of this is an important part of fourth element’s overall mission.
