ABOUT ECONYL® :
Most rash guards and swimwear are made from synthetic materials like polyurethane, polyester, and nylon, which are not biodegradable and historically contribute to plastic waste and petroleum usage. We wanted to change that.

Partnering with Rash’R, we are using ECONYL® - a fabric made from waste such as old fishing nets, fabric scraps, carpet flooring and industrial plastic from landfills and oceans. This synthetic plastic waste is regenerated into a nylon fabric that can be used again and again to make new products like swimsuits and workout gear. ECONYL® is made by Aquafil, a leading nylon producer.

Although the materials will never biodegrade, they can be upcycled again and again.

ABOUT UPF:
UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and indicates how much of the sun’s UV rays are absorbed by the fabric before it reaches your skin. A UPF rating of 50 means that only 1/50th (or 2 %) of the UV radiation (both UVA and UVB rays) can penetrate fabric.

Often common with lower quality garments, rash guard’s UPF rating decreases when wet – it can be cut nearly in half. These rash guards are 50+ - wet or dry!

PADI X OCEAN’R:
OCEAN'R is on a mission is to make the best, most eco-friendly rash guards on the market. We couldn’t hope for a better rashie partner. With a focus on delivering the latest printing techniques for the richest colors, pouring over every detail from the first stitch to the last, and creating a fit and feel that is like a second skin, Rash’R does not sacrifice style and quality for sustainability. Their commitment to the oceans resembles our own, which is why the PADI collection is made from Econyl®, a nylon fabric that turns waste (including nylon fishing nets salvaged from the Ocean) into a high quality, quick drying, technical fabric that’s ideal for those who love the water
