Created in 1999, Fourth Element strives to create the highest performing products that reflect their passion for the ocean. All products are designed and developed as a result of inspiration on a dive or expedition and feedback from users. After the concept is conceived, months of prototyping and refining then take place in search of innovative solutions to common challenges.
Fourth Element faced its first challenge 19 years ago when it tried to find ways to stay warmer on dives. This pushed Fourth Element to evolve into a full range of wetsuits, drysuits, and drysuit underwear, appropriate for use anywhere in the world.
From Ghost Fishing Nets to Underwater Apparel
Fourth Element continuously looks for ways to improve their impact on the environment. In 2014, the company discovered that ghost fishing nets were being recovered from the ocean and could be recycled into knittable yarn. With that, Fourth Element started to produce swimwear, rashguards, and then finally the Thermocline line - the world's first wetsuit made using recycled marine plastics that outperforms the competition, yet is 76% recycled. Fourth Element's goal is to develop more sustainable products, including wetsuits made from 100% plant-based rubber and packaging that is free from single-use plastic.
