Open Water Warmer!

Do you recall the pain that gets to your extremities and limbs, shivering and blue from being too long in cool water? Even some pools have the effect of dropping your body temperature very quickly. The role of high performance clothing has moved on leaps and bounds in the last decade and we all have ways of making us faster and quicker - but, the solution to cheating the chill both in and out of the water has evaded most of us, until now.

Eskeez Super Thermal Base Layers are an outstanding complement to your swimwear. There is no other product in the market that gives you this special combination of warmth, comfort and performance.

Eskeez should be worn next to the skin and can be worn under a wetsuit if you wish, adding another approximate 4mm worth of thermal value to that combination. The fit of the garments mean they fit close to the body, helping to retain a comfortable core body temperature and will not restrict your movement in any way.

When leaving the water, you will notice your body temperature struggles to regulate and on occasions, the initial stages of hypothermia set in. It is important that the symptoms are recognised and managed to continue to enjoy this exciting and ever growing sport.


"As an English open water swimmer, I'm no stranger to cold- and as a wetsuit free winter swimmer warming up afterwards is a major consideration. Up to now, I've been togging up, layer on layer, which takes valuable hot chocolate drinking time. Trying out ESKEEZ kit today has been a revelation: quick and easy on, even with cold, numb fingers getting dressed on the beach; simple single base layer, I could put on normal clothes instead of the Michelin man effect and get on with warming up my insides!

And within an hour, for the first time, my hands warmed through. This normally takes hours to fully accomplish, so I am thrilled to find a solution. I feel even more confident to spend time in the water knowing I can warm up so quickly and effectively afterwards."
