History of Splashgear®
The founder of Splashgear®, Shereen Sabet, first discovered her love for the ocean while scuba diving in the spring of 1996 when she and her husband vacationed on Santa Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California. Suited up in all their gear, they went down to the popular Casino Point dive site and entered the water. Shereen instantly fell in love with the undersea experience of swimming with the beautiful fishes and she never forgot her spiritual experience. Some years later, Shereen wondered how her hobby could coexist with her new life as an observant Muslim woman when it came to swimwear. She didn’t want to give up either her religion or her hobby, so she set out to find a solution.
Shereen soon came across the scuba diving drysuit, which allowed her to maintain her religiously-mandated modesty in mixed company. In an effort to help other women who wanted to maintain a certain level of modesty while enjoying various water activities, Shereen began experimenting with outfits that provided full-body coverage. In 2006, that work and commitment culminated in the founding of Splashgear®, an innovative modest swimwear company that offers women of all backgrounds full coverage, in-water apparel.
Splashgear® only creates high-quality products that are made in the USA and built to last.
For our swim shirts and hair covers, we use Chloroban®, a superior fabric in the performance swimwear fabric industry. Made of 100% knit polyester/PBT, Chloroban® is lightweight, durable, and has excellent stretch and recovery properties. The best part is how soft and comfortable it is to wear. Our swim bottoms are made of 100% “peached” microfiber woven polyester fabric that is DWR-coated to repel water–same fabric used in men’s boardshorts.
Both of our fabrics are quick-drying, chlorine resistant, ideal for the highest levels of competition and training, and protect you from the sun’s harsh UV rays. They have been tested via the well-established and scientifically-accepted AS/NZS 4399:1996 protocol and are rated at up to UPF 50+. Splashgear® is proud to be the only modest/full-coverage swimwear company in the world that has earned the Melanoma International Foundation’s Seal of Approval for its UV-protective garments.
