Flexible, lightweight yet hardwearing, compact and fast drying – the perfect suit for all conditions.
The Hybrid combines the freedom of movement from the Stealth fabric on the upper body, with the tried and tested durability of the Flex trilaminate fabric on the lower body. Ideal for the most demanding dives.
Lightweight and breathable, the Kevlar drysuit is particularly suited to divers spending any amount of time out of the water between dives. The Kevlar fabric allows water vapour to pass through the suit, helping to reduce condensation forming on the inside of the drysuit.
Comfortable and durable, the Flex drysuit uses trilaminate material throughout. The fabric is specified for military use and features fabric laminated with a flexible butyl layer for durability and excellent articulation.
The best of both worlds, durable Flex bottom half with a breathable Kevlar upper half.
Latex wrists come as standard with every drysuit. Hard-wearing and inexpensive, latex seals are a popular choice for recreational and technical divers alike.
Neoprene wrist seals (3mm) are considered by some divers to be more comfortable than latex seals and stand up to abrasion well.
Popular with technical divers, Si-Tech silicone wrist seals offer the ability to quickly and easily change the seals. The QCS Oval system fits most hand sizes, but for hands measuring 25cm or more, please consider latex or neoprene seals instead.
The Si-Tech QCP XL Round system is very similar to the QCP Oval system but is circular in shape which allows a more comfortable fit for those with bigger hands.
Should you want to wear drygloves with your Si-Tech QCS Oval wrist system, please select this option. The Antares kit will allow you to fit a dryglove on to your QCS Oval ring system.
Should you want to wear drygloves with your Si-Tech QCP XL Round wrist system, please select this option. The kit will allow you to fit a dryglove on to your QCP XL Round ring system.
The lightweight dryglove offers excellent dexterity with textured palms and fingertips. Inexpensive yet durable, they can be paired with fourth element's glove liners for extra warmth.
These thicker drygloves are well-suited for cold or technical dives, including wreck dives. The whole of the glove has a robust texture offering excellent grip and durability. The heavyweight dyglove can be worn with fourth element's glove liners underneath for added thermal protection.
Latex neck seals come as standard with every drysuit. Hard-wearing and inexpensive, latex seals are a popular choice for recreational and technical divers alike.
Neoprene neck seals (3mm) are considered by some divers to be more comfortable than latex seals and stand up to abrasion well.
This Si-Tech option utilises the Quick Neck System. The more flexible ring offers greater comfort and ease of movement with the added benefit of being able to change out silicone seals quickly and easily. A Si-Tech combi-tool is included.
The Standard Dry-boot is the more rigid and heavyweight of the two dry-boot options. It is well suited for shore-entry dives or for when terrain is rough. All dry-boots come with fourth element's pioneering ergonomic footbed insole, offering additional comfort and stability. The boots are sized to allow a thermal sock (such as an Arctic sock) to be worn underneath. 4mm compressed neoprene.
The Tech Dry-boot has less vulcanised rubber, making it lighter-weight and more flexible. The Tech Dry-boot is particularly popular with divers likely to be performing more complex finning. All dry-boots come with fourth element's pioneering ergonomic footbed insole, offering additional comfort and stability. The boots are sized to allow a thermal sock (such as an Arctic sock) to be worn underneath. 2.5mm compressed neoprene.
For divers who prefer to wear rock boots, the Compressed Neoprene Sock is also sized to allow the wearer a thermal sock (such as a Xerotherm sock) to be worn underneath. 2.5mm compressed neoprene.
Each Argonaut drysuit is supplied with a fourth element neoprene hood of your choice. Please choose from 3mm, 5mm, 7mm and 7mm Coldwater (with skirt).
Two generous pockets are included as standard with each Argonaut drysuit. Each pockets contains two bungee loops inside the main pocket along with a wetnotes sleeve and a D-ring. The outer zipped mini pocket contains two further bungee loops. Customers can opt to have just one or no pockets. At 3.5l volume per pocket, Argonaut pockets are one of the most generous available.
A balanced, pressure compensated p-valve. The Si-Tech p-valve design is simple and easy to clean. Very low profile, <2cm high when mounted to suit.
Machined from solid Delrin ®. The Light Monkey p-valve is a robust, balanced p-valve with engraved fourth element logo. Comes with a quick disconnect to aid quick and easy changes.
With a solid Delrin ® body, the Halcyon Streamline p-valve is a robust, balanced p-valve allowing easy operation, even with gloves.
Inflate: Si-Tech ‘Shell’ inflation valve with Int’l nipple. Exhaust/Dump: Si-Tech ‘Argo’ dump valve.
Inflate: Low profile Apeks Swivel valve with Seatec inflation nipple. Exhaust/Dump: Low profile Apeks automatic dump valve.
Glove / hand size: Wrap a tape measure around the palm of the hand just below the knuckles, make a fist and take the measurement.
BIOMAP photos may take up to two working days to evaluate. Please feel free to send any test photos to firstname.lastname@example.org for feedback, or to ask any questions you may have.
Before uploading photos please read the Biomap Photo Guide (opens in a new window) or watch the video tutorial for details of the photo specifications required. Failure to follow these guidelines can delay the drysuit production by approximately 2 weeks.
Whilst our standard exhaust valve position will suit the majority of divers, some technical divers prefer to have the exhaust valve further back on the arm to allow easier dumping of air when in horizontal trim with arms forward. We will move the exhaust valve approx. 2cm further back on the arm but please be aware this may affect your ability to reach the valve. Please only check this option if you are an experienced diver with this preference.
