    The Silvertip is our fleece-lined go-to cold water swimming wetsuit for Scottish lochs, Lakeland tarns and braving icy waters.

    • 3mm neoprene and a thermal lining for longer swims in cold water
    • Extra buoyancy promotes an efficient swimming position
    • Glideskin neoprene reduces drag and heat loss

    With an additional fleece lining, the Silvertip is designed to be warm and buoyant but not too thick to swim comfortably. The fleece lining reduces heat loss by limiting the movement of water inside your suit. More water is trapped close to your skin where it is warmed by your body, providing extra insulation.

    We’ve used thicker 3mm neoprene on the back and bum to increase buoyancy. This promotes a more efficient swimming position and helps your legs to keep going on longer swims. We’ve used thinner neoprene under the arms, shoulders, and across the chest for flexibility, giving you the freedom of movement you need for long powerful strokes.

    Glideskin neoprene makes up most of Silvertip’s outer. 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.

    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. 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.
