    Cool Gear to Warm Up on the Pool Deck


    As swimmers we choose to expose ourselves to extreme weather conditions in the hopes that all of our hard work will soon pay off. As we tread deeper into the colder seasons, our parkas and warm-ups become vital accessories to keep our bodies warm and insulated. Nobody wants to have chills prior to diving in for a 200-yard swim. For that very reason, the Blog has selected a curated mix of cool (by that we mean hip) and functional products to help warm you up on the pool deck this winter.

    First and foremost, you need to dry off. What better way the shed the extra water than with the Speedo Watershed Chamois? This accelerates the drying process and makes packing your swim bag a breeze—which puts you on the fast track to getting warm.


    Upon exiting the pool after a nice cool-down, your first reaction is to warm up. The quickest way to heat up after your swim, is to slip on a swim parka. We love the Sporti Solid Parka. With its fleece or faux-fur lining, a parka is a swimmers’ most valued piece of gear when the temperature drops.

    Underneath the parka, it is equally important to add some layers between you and the face-numbing cold. Our favorite layering piece for the pool deck is a lightweight hoodie, like Speedo’s Unisex Pull-over.

    Although it is vital to slide into warm clothes pre- and post-race, don’t forget your extremities. Being that the feet are among the coldest parts of the human body, you want to make sure that they are bundled up and ready to propel you through your race.

    We suggest; 1) cozying up in a pair of comfy socks, like the Sockguy Shark. 2) blockading the cold with boots, like the Speedo Daybreak Boots- which offer a trendy twist to the traditional Ugg boot.

    Lastly, you absolutely must top off your winter wardrobe with a hat. Whether you prefer a toasty beanie, a wind-repelling hat, or the hood of your sweatshirt- we recommend you keep your ears warm and your head dry.

    So there you have it- the 5 secrets to warm up on deck, so you can heat up the competition in the water. Take the plunge this winter, be bold and fight the cold.
