Making sure you’ve got all the swimming gear you need is a vital part of getting ready for the summer holidays. If all goes well, you’ll be taking regular dips in the pool, sunbathing and enjoying the sea too. As such, we’ve teamed up with our partners at Zoggs to set out the top 10 essential pieces of swimming gear you’ll need for the summer holidays this year.
One of the favourites from Zoggs’ new Ecolast™ range, this supportive and colourful suit is perfect for the pool or beach this summer. With a built-in shelf bra to provide that little extra support and the feature of the crossback to allow for flexibility around the back and shoulders so you don’t have to compromise on any swim stroke. It’s also made from our ground-breaking new Ecolast™ fabric. Made using yarn produced from recycled fishing nets, and other ocean waste, this chlorine-, sun cream- and heat-resistant fabric is perfect for frequent dips in the pool.
Whether you’re just taking a dip in the pool or heading for a sea swim this summer, this swim suit is ideal for you. Giving you a suit you can rely on the trusted Scoopback style offers subtle foam cups and tummy control to give you that little extra support. The chlorine resistant, durable and comfortable Hydrolife™ fabric gives you a suit you can trust through those many pool hours!
Looking for your swimming trunks for the summer? Fun but functional, Mosman’s are perfect for lying on a beach or playing in the pool with the kids. With a drawstring waist, pockets and mesh inners make these shorts feel so comfortable you’ll forget they’re swimwear. Using our chlorine proof Durafeel™ fabric, these trunks will keep their colour and shape for at least 750 pool hours, lasting for this summer and many others to come.
Need a swimsuit that can withstand the hours your kids spend in the water? Our Labrynth Rowleeback, made of Hydrolife™ fabric, won’t let you down. Chlorine resistant and quick drying means it can withstand over 200 swimming pool hours, while staying super soft and comfortable. This is a suit you can rely on this summer.
Taking your child on their first family holiday? Or introducing them to the water for the first time? Our Automania Hip Racer, with its colourful car design, will have them racing round the pool at 100mph. With the super soft, lightweight and comfortable fabric our Elastomax™ fabric will definitely be able to keep up.
Definitely a Zoggs favourite. Zoggy Dive Sticks are perfect for keeping the kids entertained during a day at the pool. They are great for helping build the kid’s confidence of being underwater. If they are confident swimmers already then the three sticks are great for a dive and retrieve game. The Zoggy Dive Sticks are a fun way of developing swimming skills and great for a little friendly competition.
Help your child find their inner super hero with our Batman Hologram Goggles. Featuring fun hologram lenses with Batman logo eyes, the goggles offer maximum UV protection. Meanwhile, the Fogbuster anti-fog lenses and Soft-Seal hypo-allergenic frame, moulds to the contours of the face providing a ‘second skin’ style comfort.
Packaged as five separate seal discs it is the perfect game to pack for those long days by the pool, they are designed to encourage and help build water confidence. Furthermore, as they get more confident and are starting to venture a bit further, it can be a great swim and retrieve game.
Which is your kid’s favourite super hero? Let them pick their favourite from Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman and let them have never-ending fun in the pool. Great for building confidence, as a game of catch, or a race to see who can collect it first. Don’t forget, they are small and light so are another great thing to sneak into that packed suitcase.
Has your child finished their swimming lessons for the term but you don’t want them to forget everything they’ve learnt? Holidays are the perfect time to practice. The Water Wings Vest is a great piece of swimming gear to help guide them through the summer ready for their return in the new school term. It’s designed to place the child in the natural swimming position using the neoprene fixed-buoyancy body and strategically sewn-in floats in the arms and shoulders. Placing the child in this position allows them to try out the swim strokes as the floats are there to support them. Meanwhile, with the zip at the back there is no chance of it coming off mid swim. The fabric also means it is quick to dry, perfect for holiday.
So what are you waiting for? Get packing for those summer holidays and don’t forget that essential holiday swimming gear for that fun family pool time.
