Absolutely love these. Fits perfect, makes swimming lessons with 2 kids under 7 so much easier at the end just throw them on and into the car with no wet car seats even has a hole for the buckle on car seats

This is my son’s second parka from this brand. I love how practical it is. The boys get out of the pool, wear their parka and I don’t have to worry about wind or getting the car wet anymore.
— Barbara N
Fantastic product. Easy to use and makes getting ready and going home a lot quicker with the kids and their swim lessons.
— Renee W
These jackets are the bomb, weather in Melbourne is cold during the winter months and this jacket keeps Ben dry and warm after swimming lessons until we get home.
— Jennie M
This is amazing, such a time saver. Kids stay warm. Was so much better for myself getting two kids out of the pool straight into the car. 10/10
— Katherine
Item came as described and works a treat. We now can hop out of the pool, put the jacket on and get straight into the car without having to drop into a crowded change room and there is no dripping as well in the car
— Lisa C
I ordered 2 swim parkas for the kids and they arrived quickly. Perfect for after their swimming lessons. Put them on, straight in the car. So convenient, I wish we got them earlier!
— Kal D
I don’t usually leave reviews, but I love these swim parkas. Im back here to buy the size up because my kids insist on growing constantly. The ones I bought over 3 years ago still look almost brand new
— Kristie F
So handy to have with swimming lessons, best on and straight in the car without any mess. Made from quality materials that soak up the water and don’t leave any mess behind, very happy with my purchase!

What are the benefits of a Swim Parka?

Take the hassle out of Swim Lessons

No more post swim hassles!

  • No need to dry off.
  • No need to get changed.
  • No falling over when trying to get dressed still half wet.
  • No more dealing with tired children who are getting grumpier by the minute.

End the day with smiles! Just slip on a parka, zip it up and head on home to shower in comfort.

No need for Change Rooms

Out of the pool and straight into a swim parka, you can avoid the drama of the public change rooms.

  • Perfect when you child is that age where they don't want to get changed in public.
  • Its the solution when your child is too old to come into the change room with you but not quite able to get themselves dry and dressed.
  • You just want to avoid trying to get your children dressed in the humidity when they are still damp and sticky.

Protects your car seats

We promise you its true!
Our swim parkas are specifically designed to keep your car seats dry. You can pop them straight on over wet bathers, there is no need to dry off. The cotton toweling will keep you dry and warm and the parka will protect the car seats and keep them dry.

  • You can pour water into our swim parkas and give them a good squeeze - not a drop will seep through.

Frequently asked Questions

What size should I get

When choosing a swim parka for your child, we always recommend going as long as practical. This way it will last for years! Start with measuring your child from the back of the neck down to where you think you would like the parka to sit. Then look at the size chart, and choose by the length that suits. We find that younger children are happy to have the parka sit above their ankles, older children prefer mid calf.

How long will it take to receive my order

We endeavor to ship all orders next business day. Please allow 3-5 business days to receive your order, possibly an additional day or two if you live in a regional area. If you have requested express post, 2-3 business days from order.

How do I care for my Swim Parka

Our parkas can be machine washed - just not tumble dried. Please note, they don't take on the chlorine smell like a regular towel and don't require washing after each use. Simply turn them inside out and leave them to air dry until the next swim.

Can I exchange my order

Absolutely! Please see our exchange/return options here
