Fourth Element Unveils HALO A°R Dive Gloves


The folks at Fourth Element recently introduced their new HALO A°R gloves for dives in chilly waters.

Using technology originally created for space exploration and cryogenics, the HALO A°R gloves feature the extreme insulation material A°RGON aerogel in a compression-resistant matrix.

A°RGON is a form of aerogel developed for insulation in spacecraft and cryogenics due to its superior insulation properties. Traditionally this material is created by removing the liquid from a gel and replacing it with air, which creates a lightweight, hollow and flexible structure.

This material enables the HALO A°R gloves to achieve extreme thermal protection from a thinner, less buoyant diving glove. With a wind and water-repellent stretch outer layer, it’s a glove which can be worn in total comfort, all day.

In addition to the A°RGON thermal insulation, the gloves’ key features include:

  • High performance low bulk
  • Optimised for horizontal trim
  • Exceptional warmth
  • Water-repellent outer layer
  • 4-way stretch fabric for snug fit
  • Machine washable

The gloves retail for US$108/~€98, and are available in sizes XS to XXL.
