Cool Swim Apparel to Help You Stay Warm This Winter

Cooler temperatures warrant swimming warm up sets.
Swimming warm up sets are a necessity in cooler temperatures.

Swim season doesn’t necessarily end when the temperatures drop. However, the way you outfit yourself at meets and practices will change. There are many types of swim apparel that will help you stay warm while you are on the sidelines so you are ready to go when it comes time to jump in the pool. The following are some of the items you should consider buying.

Swim Parkas

If you are swimming at an outdoor pool in the cooler weather, a custom swim parka can be the ideal option. These parkas are long, warm coats that are typically water resistant and will help keep your body warm while you stand at the side of the pool, waiting for your turn to jump in the pool. These coats typically have plenty of storage space so you have some place to put your swim goggles, MP3 player and any other items you may need in or out of the pool.

Swimming Warm Up Sets

When you purchase warm up pants and jackets, you will be able to keep warm while you are on the sidelines. These suits will do similar to the swim parkas but are best used when the conditions are cool, but not yet cold enough to warrant a warmer coat. In fact, these suits are often used at all times of the year, even when the weather is warm, helping keep your muscles warm so you can perform your best when you do get in the pool.

Heated Blanket

While not exactly a piece of apparel, a heated blanket can be a beneficial item to keep on the sidelines. In between your practice sessions or races, you can wrap yourself up in a heated blanket, keeping you warmer on the sidelines. One of the benefits of choosing a blanket over a jacket or other piece of apparel is you can use it on any part of the body you need, making it a more flexible option.


The head is where a large amount of your body heat can be lost when the temperatures are cooler. Therefore, buying a winter hat you can put on when you take your swim cap off in between races can be a valuable investment.

Staying warm on the sidelines is important, especially if you are on a swim team during the colder months of the year. With these pieces of swim apparel, you will find it much easier to stay warmer on the sidelines to improve your performance.
