Fourth Element Storm Poncho Changing Robe - Black

£138.00 Regular price

The Fourth Element Storm Poncho is a high quality changing robe from Fourth Element's Ocean Positive range.  It is warm, waterproof and quick drying, and best of all, it packs down small so that it easily fits into your swim bag.  The Storm Poncho is manufactured according to the Bluesign® standard, using innovative, resource-conserving and environmentally friendly techniques.

Getting changed after a chilly swim is simple with no fiddly zip and plenty of room and side poppers.  In bad weather, the environmentally friendly, fluorine free waterproof and windproof outer layer and adjustable peaked hood  keeps you snug in the worst of weathers.  The fleece inner lining has been manufactured using recycled yarn with S.Café® technology, derived from post consumer plastic bottles. The S.Café® process embeds coffee grounds into the recycled yarn surface, providing faster drying times along with increased odour resistance and enhanced reflection of UV rays.

The Maker

Fourth Element began as a diving company who set out to design high quality clothing with a simple, diving orientated style.  Outdoor swimmers are starting to purchase the brand due to the quality, design and environmental commitment of the company.   

Fourth Element are committed to doing everything they can to preserve oceans for the future and with this in mind introduced their Ocean Positive range of swimwear and products.  Ocean Positive products were originally conceived a from recycled ghost nets and other discarded waste – turned into ECONYL® yarn to use in their swimwear and rashguards. They are constantly reviewing their products to add more sustainable fabrics and ensuring anything created is thoughtfully considered for its environmental impact.

Examples of Fourth Elements sustainable practices include:
- Products are packaged in compostable or FSC certified paper bags or cardboard. 
- Their headquarters in Cornwall is entirely powered by solar power. 
- Organic waste is composted on site allowing them to test the claims of compostability by packaging suppliers.
- Wetsuits which cannot be repaired or sold are either donated to charitable groups such as those introducing wounded servicemen and women to scuba diving and surfing, or scout troops, or they are re-purposed by local groups into book bags as part of a local young enterprise programme.
- They have their milk delivered in glass bottles from the local dairy.
