The Bredon swimming shorts are for fast, faff-free swims outdoors or when the thought of clambering in and out of a wetsuit is enough to put you off your swim.
The Bredon uses a stretch fabric that keeps its streamlined shape when wet and a boxer-style short for a more natural swimming experience. We’ve used a panelled design to allow you to swim with freedom, whatever your stroke of choice, and flat-lock seams to prevent any rubbing.
The high performance ECONYL®and spandex fabric offers UV protection with a UPF of 50+, and is sun cream and chlorine resistant. We’ve also added a lined front panel to ensure that the Bredon are revealing-more-than-you-really-wanted-to-resistant too – very important.
78% ECONYL® recycled nylon / 22% spandex
How It Is Made
Recycled MaterialsECONYL® is a high performance nylon yarn made from recycled ocean plastics, disused fishing nets and landfill waste. After capturing this waste, the nylon is broken down and reformed into new fibres that are chemically identical to brand new nylon. As well as reducing emissions by 90%, it can be recycled infinitely – infinitely!

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.
We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.
