Outdoor Swimming Society Partnership Page

Embrace the art of swimming wild. Our outdoor swimwear and wetsuits promote a natural swimming style with heat retention, flexibility and freedom of movement for a variety of strokes - breaststroke, crawl or backstroke.

Tested in UK lakes, rivers and seas our wetsuits and swimwear are designed by swimmers for flexibility, temperature retention, comfort and using buoyancy to swim freely with a natural swimming style.


The Outdoor Swimming Society

The Outdoor Swimming Society is a volunteer not-for-profit, and the biggest collective of outdoor swimmers worldwide. Established by Kate Rew in 2006, it has helped drive the swimming movement that the world is enjoying now, and works to free swimmers to enjoy water wherever they live. www.outdoorswimmingsociety.com

Our favourite swim films

We have had the pleasure to work and swim with some of the most inspirational swimmers, those that have been at the forefront of the resurgence in outdoor swimming. They've helped us develop and enhance our range of wetsuits and swimwear. And we've been able to capture some of this on film. Share with us our swimspiration!

A Right To Swim

In 1932, Kinder saw the first mass trespass event, where hundreds of people gathered in protest for a right to roam. Just 91 years later, Alpkit is proud to support the Outdoor Swimming Society and Right to Roam in their campaign to open up access to England's natural places. Joined by more than 500 outdoor enthusiasts, Kate Rew and the team at OSS took to the waters at Kinder Reservoir as part of a mass trespass in a stance against restrictions on access to our waterways.

Chasing The Sublime

'Chasing the Sublime', a mesmeric glimpse at the physicality of long distance cold water swimming by award winning director Amanda Bluglass Why do we put ourselves into the path of discomfort and risk? What drives us to get too cold and too tired, to battle with fear, in the name of adventure?

Loch Hourn on the Knoydart peninsula in the Western Isles of Scotland is regarded as one of the last wildernesses of Europe. Access to sea lochs is difficult. Salt water mingles with fresh water as it runs off the mountains, icy even in high summer. This mesmeric film immerses us in the physicality of cold water swimming, asking why we put ourselves in the path of discomfort and risk; why does the search for adventure take us to ever more remote and in hospitable places?

Join the originators of The Outdoor Swimming Society, 'swim twins' Kate Rew and Kari Furre, as they set out to chase the sublime.

 

Swim wild

We were the first brand to introduce a cold water swim-specific wetsuit back in 2015 (as far as we know). That followed quickly with a fleece-lined suit, SUP suit and a swim-run shorty. We've got our friends at the Outdoor Swimming Society and design legend Dean Jackson to thank for that.

Cold water swimwear from fishing nets

Our swimwear for outdoor swimming has a zoned construction of varying weight to aid temperature retention. All our swimwear is made from Econyl which is post-consumer recycled content such as fishing nets.

Go Swimming

Our wetsuits promote a natural swimming style with flexibility and freedom of movement for a variety stroke - breaststroke, crawl or backstroke.

Recycle your old wetsuit

We're delighted to partner with Circular Flow and make it easy to recycle your old wetsuit.

Even the most beloved wetsuit will reach breaking point at some stage.

Wetsuits and other neoprene products have traditionally been impossible to recycle with an estimated 8,380 tonnes likely to end up in landfill every year. Circular Flow has created an effective and sustainable solution.

Follow this link to Join The Circle and recycle your old neoprene with us.
