   My monthly dose of outdoor swimming inspiration :) Reviewed 02 February 2020 SUBSCRIBER
I am so happy that I subscribed to Outdoor Swimmer magazine. It is so crazy and is going to inspire me for my future swims.
   A great read for all the family! Reviewed 02 February 2020 SUBSCRIBER
Love love love the magazine. All the family read it eagerly, even the non-outdoor swimmers!
   My favourite mag when I need it! Reviewed 27 January 2020 SUBSCRIBER
I just love this magazine! It's full of stories and inspiration, makes you discover places, new events, tips, reviews on gear and trips. I really like the articles that give us a slice of history and the biology and environmental articles too. I like my paper copy, it's my first choice but I am grateful to be able to take my phone out if i'm waiting somewhere or on public transport, and being able to read the mag anyway. Keep on publishing guys!
   Really informative Reviewed 25 January 2020
Such a varied magazine, covering all sorts of swimming outdoors. I love the articles on tides and how to be safe when swimming outdoors. Loads of competitions, even spotted a friend in one of the photos!
I recommend having a look at this magazine.
   I love this magazine and community! Reviewed 15 January 2020 SUBSCRIBER
Reading the magazine cover to cover, I feel like I'm a part of something magical. It's inspired me to head out on my own. Whether dips, longer swims, neoprined or not, it's my happy place. I feel a part of this wonderful family.
