The J2 Baselayer Top for Women is a simple, close fitting design with flat seams for next to skin comfort offers the perfect solution under any drysuit underwear.
The Fourth Element J2 Baselayer is designed to keep the skin dry which can be critical to a comfortable dive, whether it is staying warm, preventing infections or just bad smells.
Fast Wicking Baselayer
The unique knit of the J2 fabric maximises the air next to the skin whilst providing good contact points for moisture from perspiration to be wicked away. This wicking action is a mechanical process and will last for the lifetime of the garment.
Silver ions are incorporated into the fibres when they are manufactured, ensuring that the bacteriostatic and anti-fungal properties of the fabric last. This cannot be washed off. The silver ions prevent the formation of bacterial cell membranes, preventing most bacteria from growing in the fibres of the garment. However, this will not adversely affect the naturally occurring bacteria on the skin itself.
Performance When Wet
The J2 wicking performance also comes into its own when the fabric gets wet. Water is wicked away from the skin, and with the right combination of drysuit underwear, further away though the fibres of the undersuit. Even in the event of a suit flood, the J2 will retain some of its performance.
