Fourth Element Unveils Updated Xerotherm Drysuit Base Layer


If you’re a cold-water aficionado and are in the market for a new thermal base layer to wear under your drysuit, Fourth Element may have something for you.

The company recently unveiled its updated Xerotherm base layer with new men’s and women’s sizes.

The Xerotherm features a Polartec fabric that traps air next to the skin and wicks sweat away from it.

The base layer is designed for wearing under another under suit or alone under a drysuit made of neoprene.

The Xerotherm is available as a long-sleeve top, vest and leggings for men and women, as well as a beanie hat and socks. The top, vest and leggings sizes for men range from XS to XXXL, while the women’s range from sizes 6 through 20. The beanie hat comes in one size and the socks are available in sizes XS through XXL.
