The swim parka is a functional, extra length jacket for athletes, competitive swimmers and water polo players.
The outer fabric is a durable oxford nylon that is lightweight, waterproof and provides a barrier to environmental elements. The inside fabric is polyester toweling that absorbs water and keep the swimmer dry. Can be used as an alternative to a towel.
The design provides exceptional thermal protection that enables athletes to be in the best shape when they enter the water.

The swim parka is great. It is just quite large for my 12 year old daughter. I bought the medium based on the heights you specify. She is 1.69m. But being 12 she is quite thin. So it is huge for her. I should have bought the small. She loves it though. I think it would be great if you had a male and female version. Something slightly more elegant for female swimmers. I will definitely buy one for my son as well. He is 11.
Sizing is always a challenge and something we try to overcome by providing a sizing guide, with an explanation about the swim parka not being a conventional garment. That being said it is difficult to know what size will be best without being able to try on the garment.
Therefore our customer exchange policy is very accommodating and we are more than willing to send you an alternative size (as no customisation was done on the parka). Please advise on the alternative size you would like?
Thank you for the suggestion about having a more tailored parka for the girls. Something I would definitely like to design in the future. There is an American brand called Wotter that have capitalised on that niche. Check it out at https://wottergear.com/
Training for Triathlons in winter makes the swimming session so much easier when you know you have something warm to run to afterwards... great quality and definitely retains the heat!
