Open Water Swimming Wetsuits and Accessories
Embrace the art of wild swimming, keep warm and keep things dry with kit to use in and out of the water

Terrapin, Lotic and Silvertip are all designed in Nottingham by Alpkit, with industry legend Dean Jackson and in collaboration with the Outdoor Swimming Society.

Tested in the UKs lakes, rivers and sea, we use premium technical fabrics like glideskin neoprene constructed with 1.5mm to 4mm panels to balance open water swimming comfort, temperature retention and buoyancy. Because its sold direct from us to you, without retailer mark-ups, the finest swimming wetsuits don't come with a high street price-tag.
