With a product range that includes goggles for any eventuality, swimwear, pool aids and a full complement of Peppa Pig-branded gear for kids, the only gap in Aussie brand Zoggs’ swim offering until now was a wetsuit – but that’s all set to change with their newly launched range of three suits, designed to target all ability levels.

The FX1 is aimed at experienced swimmers, although the zip is still top to bottom

The FX1 shown here (£330) is aimed at regular and more experienced swimmers. Zoggs claim the suit offers unparalleled flexibility through their ‘Flex’ technology, incorporating an Ultra Flex 2mm panel in the upper body and a super-stretch lining in the 1.5mm arms, giving freedom of movement in the arms and shoulders.

The suit is made from Yamamoto 39 cell neoprene with Super Composite Skin for a high level of drag resistance.
