Swim t ravel Kit

This month we investigate swim kit to inspire and support you on your swim travel adventures. From tropical trunks, to classic style one pieces, through to the best new swim mask on the market – the Aquasphere Vista Pro Swim. And bags… Who knew you can get excited about bags?! But you can – especially when brands are excelling at thoughtful, user-led design. Stand-outs are the Decathlon Voyager trekking pack and the Arena Fast Tri Bag – simply ace for carrying and storing open water and triathlon kit.

And finally, lotions and potions. We’re excited to feature Aloe Up for the first time – reef friendly, biodegradable sunscreen – enjoy!

All kit is tested by swimmers for swimmers. This month’s insights are from myself, Simon, Jonathan and Jo from the Outdoor Swimmer team, Josie Arden, Mick Hinde, Gail MacLean and Kathrine O’Brien – all experienced outdoor swimmers.

One-pieces and tankinis


Ladies’ ‘Dripping’ Criss-Cross Top and Bibi Banded Brief

Top £23.95 Brief £23.95 Size: 8 - 16

Had to go the size up to get good fit on bottoms, but great coverage and adjustable waist string. The double strap on the top felt secure in the water.
