Product information

Our promise of distinctive quality and style you will love.

 Covertogs™ are 100% New Zealand designed, made and delivered.

The table below shows our attention to detail to ensure your Covertogs™ are a high quality garment that will give you the confidence to buy and to be active and out there.



Fabric Used by Covertogs

Italian Advanced  Recycled Vita Xtra Life™ Lycra®

Most technically advanced Italian Polyamide (78%)  + Lycra (22%) mix for performance, smoothness, soft feel, and pilling resistance

22% Lycra®

High Lycra (elastine) content means the fabric is super stretchy and therefore great for being active in.

The additional stretch also makes covertogs very forgiving, easily stretching over the bust, bottom and other bits.

The Polyamide (nylon) component of the fabric is 100% recycled

Almost 80% of the composition of  the covertogs fabric is regenerated nylon fiber from post-consumer materials. This helps to reduce the environmental impact of covertogs swimwear

High (UPF 50+)  UV Protection

Covertogs fabric provides excellent protection from the harmful effects of sun exposure

Fast Drying

Great to wear all day (no sitting round in damp and soggy smelly swimwear)

190 grams per square meter (weight of fabric)

Greater weight of fabric is more flattering, provides better concealment if needed

Chlorine resistant

Vita Lycra Xtra Life™ prevents breakage and fit loss 5 times longer than other chlorine-resistant elastines*


Sun Cream resistant

Vita Lycra Xtra Life™ shows no sagging even when sun cream has been applied to it and the garment is left in chlorinated water for 10 days*


Swimwear made with the fabric we use for covertogs lasts more than twice as long as traditional swimwear fabrics using the best competitor’s elastic fibres*
