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 open water swimming wetsuits are intended for year-round swimming. 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 suit for longer stints in the water.
