New Fourth Element Wetsuits Made from Fishing Nets

Now you can keep warm and contribute to ocean conservation at the same time. Fourth Element is re-releasing its Thermocline line of wetsuits, which are now made from the remnants of ghost fishing nets.

With more than 600,000 tons of ghost fishing nets polluting the ocean every year, the re-use of the material for wetsuits is a natural fit. “The OceanPositive range is a statement of intent, to do something meaningful to benefit the environment that we love and feel compelled to protect,” says Fourth Element managing director Paul Strike in a statement.

Fourth Element’s new line of Thermocline – Next Generation Oceanwear is also unique in the sense that it is neutrally buoyant. Users can experience the warmth of a 2mm wetsuit without having to worry about adding weight to compensate for the buoyancy.

Check out the full line of the new Thermocline wetsuits on the Fourth Element website.
