Swim Parkas

Have you ever gotten out of the pool or an open water swim and come down with a case of the shivers? Those bone cold shivers that seem to take ages to coax away? Those aren’t good, people! Right after you get done with a swim, you should bundle up to stay warm. This is common sense, and most people who cozy up in a sweatshirt, sweatpants, or jacket. But others may benefit from adding a parka to their swim attire for extra warmth and comfort. Parkas are designed to be extra long and many are lined with fur or microfleece with long sleeves and a hood to wrap yourself up!

What size parka should I buy?
Generally speaking, you’ll want to buy one that’s a size or more above what you would normally wear. That way, you can fit your shirt and sweatshirt on underneath if you’d like, plus you’ll have a more freedom of movement.

This general rule also applies for children and teenagers who are on a team. By buying a size above, you can ensure that they will be able to wear it for multiple seasons and you won’t have to purchase one year after year.

Buying a parka for your son, daughter, or for yourself is a great investment. When properly cared for, parkas can last for years and maintain their cozy qualities for each time you pull them out to stay warm before or after a meet. At Swim2000, we carry parkas made by Speedo, Tyr, Adorete, Nike, and even a lifeguard parka! You will definitely find one works for you.
