Sun Fact

When thinking about sun exposure, you might envision yourself on the beach or exercising outdoors. But millions of Americans receive a large portion of their sun exposure when they don’t even realize it - in their cars.
- Skin Cancer Foundation


Aqua Classic™ Fabric

This is where it all started! We set out to develop a superior UPF 50+ swim fabric that didn’t feel heavy or rubbery like scuba rash guards. The result is a technically elegant, sun-safe swim fabric that is chlorine and saltwater resistant with a modest 4-way stretch. It’s silky smooth on the inside with a figure-flattering matte surface on the exterior. Customers love our Aqua Classic because it’s lightweight, quick dry and comfortable.

100% Polyester

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Material and Vibrant Colours I haven't worn these swimming yet because Georgian bay is very cold until mid July. However I plan to wear the set kayaking. Lots of sun exposure. Lots of mobility in the fabric. I'm sure I will wear them as long as I enjoy paddling. And the colours are beautiful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice style and confortable I purchased these leggings for strolling at the beach or for kayaking. I like the style. The fabric is light. I purchased size medium because i wanted a less tight fit. I am 5.3, 128 pounds.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from very thin Not as thick a material as the Women's Deep Water Swim Capris, although both are 100% polyester and both are listed as 'Aqua Classic Fabric'. Felt like I needed to wear a swim suit bottom under these capris. I will keep these for bike riding and order another pair of the Deep Water Swim Capris for swimming.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really works! Just wore these kayaking and then sunblock from the mid calf down. I have a significant tan line where these end and for the majority of my 2 hour kayak trip the sun was behind clouds. Am now ordering the longer pair for walking and will keep these just for kayaking. I was not hot at all from them, so they are very breathable and you don't even feel like you are wearing anything. With that being said I think that aspect makes them fit looser. I am 170lb, 5ft, quite thick and athletic and the medium feels stretchy when I put them on, even in the legs and I have thick legs. Sometimes I am between and 8 and a 10 but 8 is pretty snug right now. So a medium should have fit better. Even when wet there was no slippage so should be okay. But still don't like stretchy feel to my clothes. These are paper thin and it may feel weird at first but you get used to it and these dry much faster than a swimsuit. I hate being wet, even though I'm a swimmer, so very happy overall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry but these are ugly and too big! Ugh! These swim capris are so unattractive and so big that I had to tie a big ugly knot in the tie waistband! The fabric is so thin that I am afraid they will be too see through in the water. That may not matter however as they will probably slip off when I am swimming. I wish Incould return or exchange them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nope, not for me. I guess others may like these but for me, they do not fit well. I also bought them on clearance and they only offered one color which was baby blue (my own name for the color) and I'd be too embarrassed to wear them in public. Ugly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, good design Yet another pair of Coolibar swim tights that I love. This one has the cute ruching on the lower outer leg that gives a little interest to the design. I love how the waistband is soft and doesn’t roll, but also stays up just right. The fabric is stretchy enough to be comfortable all over, but snug enough to stay in place. I’m tall (5’8”) and these come to mid-calf. A great length for hot weather and snorkeling, the protection is there but doesn’t go all the way to the ankle. I don’t know how I could ever use another company’s swim tights, Coolibar does them too well.
