Zoggs to launch sustainable thermal swimwear for open water swimming

Zoggs to launch sustainable thermal swimwear for open water swimming
October 6, 2023

Zoggs is launching a range of sustainable women’s thermal swimwear this November, with the range having a special focus on open water swimming. 

The vibrant innovative thermal swimwear range has been developed to enhance the outdoor swimming experience through science and colour. For wild dippers through to experienced endurance open water swimmers, these bold suits have been designed with performance in mind and feature Zoggs latest fabric innovation - Thermal Silver Lining.

Zoggs Thermal Silver Lining not only gives a fantastic fit and feel, but it also offers an extra benefit - heat preservation. Lab tests revealed that Zoggs unique Thermal Silver Lining reflects body heat, retaining warmth for 60% longer than normal swimwear. These open water swimsuits are fully lined front and back with this patent pending silver technology.

The compressive outer fabric is also new, introducing EcofeelTM - Zoggs latest sustainable fabric. EcofeelTM is made with recycled plastic waste such as discarded fishing nets (79% Recycled Micro Polyamide and 21% Elastane) and has a soft, supportive feel.

These thermal swimsuits are also highly chlorine resistant and have maximum protection against UV rays (UPF50+).

Four designs will be available from mid-November online and at select aquatic centres. The new range will be available in sizes 8 – 26 and will feature bright bold prints, designed to help open water visibility and to celebrate the exhilarating experience of open water swimming.

Zoggs champions the joy of swimming for everybody. The Australian brand is passionate about designing innovative, quality swimwear, goggles and swimming equipment that absolutely everybody can trust in.

Zoggs on a sustainability mission, taking action now for the future. Sustainability is at the forefront of everything they do. From reducing the plastic in their goggle packaging, the use of recycled and recyclable materials, to providing over 95% of their swimwear range in sustainable fabrics made from recycled plastic bottles.

Zoggs is part of The HEAD Group, a leading global sporting goods corporation which owns the HEAD, PENN, MARES, SSI and ZOGGS brands.

Zoggs products are for sale online, in retail stores and in aquatic centres across Australia and New Zealand (also available in over 50 countries).
