Our Bioprene

All swish suits are made from our revolutionary bioprene, which is not just ecologically friendly, but also a better performance product.  Our materials are both ecologically conscience and functional!

Swish Wetsuit Shortie Design

Swish wetsuits---made by women for women

How can a wetsuit be green?
Normal wetsuits are made from neoprene, which is derived from petroleum.  Our suits are made of bioprene that derives from limestone and is 99.7% pure sent to us by the Yamamoto Corporation.

Okay, so we have established that the wetsuit is ecologically friendly, but can it also be functional?
YES! In fact bioprene is a better performing product then normal neoprene.  It is more stretchy, more durable, lighter, and SEXIER!


The ratio of closed cells of our neoprene is over 93%, which is 22-23% higher than our competitor’s materials, whose closed cell contents is typically in the 60-70% range.

The uniform microcell structure ensures that if any part of the material surface is defaced or scarred, new independent concave microcells are exposed insuring continued functionality.


Yamamoto Corporation injects each closed cell with nitrogen gas, resulting in exceptional heat retention and efficiency.


The high closed cell ratio ensures ultra low water absorption (quick drying), creating lightweight and specific gravity foams with good strength and cell memory. Most of the water logging in typical neoprene is a result of the neoprene compression and then breakage, which takes on mass quantities of water. Our Bioprene has a .30% absorption percent by weight, ensuring virtually no water absorption.  The weight of our material in dry or wet conditions remains almost the same and therefore wetsuits and other products made of this material do not become saturated with moisture or get heavy when submerged in water.  We are so confident about the performance of our product that each suit comes with a warranty:::::

Swish Suits Limited Warranty/Repair

All Swish Suits products shall be free from defective materials for a period of one year from the date of purchase, provided that the product is purchased from an authorized Swish Suits dealer and used in normal conditions. During this one year period Swish shall repair or replace, at its sole discretion, all materials that are found by Swish to be defective and thus subject to this limited warranty. All zippers are warranted to be free of defects for 60 days.

About Kathy Dowsett

I believe in protecting our oceans, lakes and rivers, as well as their aquatic life. I respect the work of conservation groups such as Save the Sharks, Save the Sea Turtles and Save our Wrecks. I believe that the use of plastic bags/bottled water should be discouraged as plastic finds its way to the ocean. I also support Diving for the Disabled and Swimming for the Disabled. As a PADI-certified diver, my interest in diving led to the opening in July 2008 of kirkscubagear, my online business. My site offers more than 2,000 products, including freediving, swimming and outdoor equipment. My continuing goal is to encourage diving and offer customers a shopping alternative for the purchase of scuba gear.
