The popular fourth element Hydroskin in this seasons colour palette. OceanPositive Hydroskins are made using sustainable techno-fabric made with Econyl® – 100% regenerated polyamide fibre from post-consumer materials – which, when tested in real life conditions are two times more resistant to chlorine, suntan creams and oils than other fabrics. These amazing results are achieved thanks to innovative construction and the presence of LYCRA® XTRA LIFE™. Designed to wear under a wetsuit or semi-dry suit for comfort and as a UV shield for other watersport activities.
 

RECYCLED FROM THE SEA
 

Our Thermocline range, swimwear and OceanPositive rashguards are made using recycled nylon from ghost fishing nets and other discarded waste.

‘Ghost nets’ amount to over 600,000 tonnes of lost gear every year. The main hazard is to marine life – from invertebrates to large marine mammals. They continue to fish, long after they have been abandoned, and account for countless lives. The netting, very slow to degrade, scrubs coral, creating a desolate seascape where they are dragged over the reef by shifting currents.

Now, all over the world, dive teams are removing these ghost nets from the wrecks and reefs, often at great depths, and bringing them up to the surface where they can be recycled and spun into nylon yarn.

“THIS IS A FANTASTIC IDEA, ONE WHICH DEMONSTRATES WHAT WE CAN, AND SHOULD, DO FOR THE OCEANS”.
