Fourth Element Proteus II 5mm Mens
The Proteus II 5mm wetsuits are ideal for the cooler tropical waters like Malta, Red Sea in the winter or even the UK during the summer. Neck seal minimises water flow through the suit making this one of the warmest suits in its class.
The Proteus II is arguably the highest performing wetsuit on the market. Available in 3mm and 5mm the Proteus II is often the benchmark to which other suits are compared in terms of warmth.
By combining the now famous Hydrolock inner neck seal and Glideskin wrist seals, water ingress is minimised. Seams are double glued, blind stitched and taped to provide outstanding thermal protection throughout the dive. Additional Hexcore linings on the body core provide enhanced thermal performance where it is most needed for prolonged water exposure.
The 5mm suit is a versatile performer. With improved fit, the suit is easier to don than the classic Proteus, but its thermal performance is even better. We recommend the 5mm suit for prolonged dives in temperatures of 19C and warmer. To get more out of any wetsuit in colder waters, combine it with a Thermocline vest and shorts underneath and use a hood (3mm or 5mm).
