Fourth Element has revealed a new Storm all-weather poncho which could help with those moments on a dive boat when the weather is all over the show.
The brand describes it as being warm and fast-drying, plus it packs down small, enabling you to take it anywhere. Wear it over the over the top of swimwear, or use it to get changed into your wetsuit at the beach or on the boat.
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 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 per cent 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.
