    Open water swimming requires buoyancy, freedom of movement and insulation - a combination you just don't get in a standard wetsuit. Designed in collaboration with industry guru Dean Jackson, Lotic was made to meet these demands.

    The right level of buoyancy helps you to move swiftly and efficiently through the water. We’ve used slightly thicker neoprene at the back, upper legs and glutes to lift your lower body. This reduces drag at the front of the wetsuit and stops your legs from getting so tired, promoting a more efficient swimming position.

    Exclusively made from Yamamoto limestone neoprene throughout, Lotic uses thinner neoprene around the shoulders, chest and underarms, leaving your upper body unrestricted so you can really reach forward for long, powerful strokes. The collar and cuffs are thinner still to reduce wetsuit chafing.

    Glideskin neoprene makes up most of Lotic. This gives it excellent dirt and water repellence and reduces drag through water so that you move more efficiently. Glideskin also reduces heat conduction from the body, making it warmer than standard neoprene. The lower leg is a high abrasion area, so we’ve used nylon-faced neoprene around the calf and shin for added durability.

    The wrists, ankles, shoulders and neck feature flashes of red for better visibility. A long lanyard zip-puller up the back means you can get into your wetsuit without relying on a passer-by to help you!

    Lotic is fully recyclable at end-of-life to be made into new neoprene products through our partnership with Circular Flow.

    Whether you’re an experience open water swimmer or transitioning over from the pool, Lotic offers the best balance between flexibility, buoyancy and warmth.

    Sustainability and Product Care

    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. The neoprene collar and cuffs can be trimmed with scissors if they extend too far. 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.
