Try Before You Buy is also available from our stores.

About Lotic

Silvertip was conceived for aggressive, powerful swimmers going long distances in cold waters… or for the rest of us, less proficient swimmers who just feel the cold more, it is a swimming suit that will get us out in the water when previously we would have headed for the cafe.

A fleece lined interior and thicker neoprene panels makes Silvertip our go to cold water swimming suit. Turn Silvertip inside out and you will see the fleece lined inner face that (a) makes it easier to pull on and off (b) traps more water close to the skin and prevents it from flowing around. Designed in collaboration with industry guru Dean Jackson,  Silvertip has been designed with year round adventurous open water swimming in mind.

Neoprene thicknesses has been carefully chosen to ensure a great swimming action while providing maximum temperature retention to increase time in the water. Thicker neoprene on the back and back of the leg also provide the extra buoyancy to help you on longer swims. Thinner neoprene is used under the arms, across the chest and lower leg for flexibility.

The result is a warmer suit without making it so thick that it becomes unwieldly to swim in.

As you propel yourself through the water drag is further reduced by the Glideskin neoprene. Making up the majority of the suits surface area it streamlines Silvertips movement through the water and give it excellent dirt and water repellency. Glideskin also reduces heat conduction from the body increasing warmth over standard neoprene.

The wrists, shoulders and neck feature flashes of silver for better visibility with a nylon skin covering the lower leg for durability in this high abrasion area.

Access to and from the suit is via a deep back zipper with lanyard to ensure you can get in and out by yourself.

Unsure what size is the perfect swim-fit? Try Before You Buy in your local water.

Product Care Information

When you are pulling on your suit take care not to use your finger nails.

Check your suit for fit and range of motion. Your suit will feel different when wet.

Rinse your suit out with fresh water after each use. Hang the wetsuit inside out and allow to dry away from direct sunlight or heat source.

Store your suit in a cool room on a wide plastic coat hanger.

Roll your suit when transporting rather than fold.

Don’t use petroleum products with your suit as this will damage the neoprene.

Small tears can be repaired with neoprene cement/glue.

Note: if you have previously purchased one of our swimming suits you will want to know we have shifted our sizing so that what was our Medium is now our Small.
What hasn't changed are that these suits are sized for a performance fit, so if you are unused to wearing a swimming wetsuit you may still find it tight. If you prefer a comfort fit go up a size, but note it will be less thermally efficient.
