Fourth Element Arctic Socks
The Arctic undersuit is complemented by the Arctic socks, which completes the thermal protection system, offering low bulk thermal protection to the extremities. The two layer construction is warm and comfortable, and the inner liner can be pulled out from the outer liner to speed drying times.
“Protect the extremities.” That’s what one famous explorer said, although he was probably making a comment on the fact that several intrepid adventurers have lost digits to frostbite. Cold feet on a dive certainly do not present the same risks as frostbite, but it’s true that if your feet get cold on a dive, concentration can waver and an otherwise fantastic dive can be marred by discomfort. From Finsocks, designed to alleviate the rubbing from a full-foot fin or to keep the feet warmer and more comfortable in neoprene boots, to the Hotfoot and Hotfoot Pro, a drysuit sock with a water resistant outer layer, there is always a fourth element solution to keeping your feet warm.
