What if you could wear something that was GOOD for the Ocean?   OceanPositive

OceanPositive is made using recycled nylon from ‘Ghost’ fishing nets, abandoned by fishing vessels after snagging on reefs and wrecks. These ‘Ghost Nets’ continue to fish, often ensnaring marine life and posing a hazard to divers.

The Ghost Fishing Project enlists teams of divers to remove these nets and bring them to the surface, where they are recycled.

OceanPositive uses finest quality Lycra® fabric made with these recycled nylon yarns to turn the traditional product development model of ‘Cradle to Grave’ on its head, as we create a line of swimwear from marine waste.

OceanPositive takes dangerous fishing gear, sourced by divers, and makes a practical product line, designed by divers, to be comfortable under a wetsuit.

We meet divers from all over the world who are passionate about the health of the oceans. This is a product designed for them: one which is genuinely good for our environment and helps to clean up our seas.

Hydroskin - Ultra Smooth Rash Guards


Ocean Positive Hydroskin - Ultra Smooth Rash Guards

Constructed from high grade lycra based fabric, the Hydroskin Rash Guards and suit are designed to wear under a wetsuit or semi-dry suit or as a UV shield for other watersport activities. The ultra smooth fabric reduces friction between the skin and a wetsuit, and helps to stop chafing of tight/ill-fitting suits.

Cyclone - Waterproof Jacket


Cyclone - Waterproof Jacket

Developed to withstand the elements, the Cyclone jacket uses XWP3 (extreme weather protection) three layer fabric to provide the perfect solution to what we like to call 'Dive Weather'. Between dives, on the way to the dive site, or simply as an everyday jacket, the Cyclone jacket excels. Breathable and waterproof with taped seams, this should be part of every diver's surface gear.
