Ever been out on a dive boat when the weather takes a turn for the worse? The folks at Fourth Element may have just the thing for you.
Fourth Element recently unveiled the Storm all-weather poncho. It’s warm, fast-drying and packs down small, enabling you to take it anywhere. Throw it on to get changed into your wetsuit at the beach or on the boat. Use it to warm up after a session in the water or to cover up between dives.
The waterproof, fleece-lined fabric is lightweight, cosy and manufactured using an environmentally friendly, fluorine-free waterproofing treatment. With side vents secured by poppers, getting changed is simple, with generous hand warmer pockets adding to the comfort factor when warming up. The adjustable hood features a peak, providing excellent protection even in the worst of weather.
The Storm Poncho is also part of Fourth Element’s “OceanPositive” range. Using fabric manufactured according to the Bluesign standard, the Storm Poncho is produced using innovative, resource-conserving and environmentally friendly techniques.
The fleece backing contains 37 percent recycled yarn with S.Café technology, derived from post consumer plastic bottles. The S.Café process embeds coffee grounds into the recycled yarn surface, changing the characteristics of the filament and provides faster drying times along with increased odor resistance and enhanced reflection of UV rays.
The Storm Poncho is available in Unisex sizes XS/S, S/M, L/XL, and XL/XXL. It retails for £139.90/~US$178.40/~156.87 Euros.
