Open Water Swimming Wetsuits and Accessories

Embrace the art of swimming wild whilst keeping warm for maximal cold water comfort
Tested in UK lakes, rivers and seas, and designed for great temperature retention and comfort, we've developed a range of outdoor swimming wetsuits in collaboration with industry design legend Dean Jackson and the Outdoor Swimming Society. Using buoyancy to promote a natural swimming style, our swimming wetsuits are intended for year-round swimming in open water. We use the finest premium technical fabrics, like Glideskin neoprene, for a collection which ranges from thinner suits for a more natural swimming style, to a fleece-lined warm wetsuit for swimming in cold water.
See the Lotic Wetsuit in action in Kari Furre's Mountain Short. Personal stories for the love of the outdoors.
