ICE SWIMMING ACCESSORY
EIRA ICE SWIMMER BAG
Originally created for our ice-swimming community and practice in Eiranranta, Helsinki, we are very happy to announce that everyone can now order the Eira bag, available for immediate delivery — just in time for this winter’s ice.
AT THE END OF A YELLOW LADDER
Why a bag for winter swimming, you ask? To answer this question you first need to understand the place, the people and the purpose for which the bag was designed — and, above all, to understand that you can find your truth at the end of a yellow ladder. Here are a few photos that will make the point, far better than any words can.
AND HERE IS THE BAG TO HELP YOU
GET DOWN, AND BACK UP, THAT LADDER
In developing Eira, we gathered essential feedback and requests from our ice swimmer community in Eiranranta, to help us clarify a functionality that addresses actual needs, to work out the ergonomics, and to brush out all unnecessary features. The result — a purpose driven, extreme weather-ready and most unusual bag, specifically designed for the global community of ice and wild water swimmers.
PROTECT THE FEET
Fully detachable and foldable padded mat to step on, to protect against rocks, ice and snow. Ideal for year round use, including everything from a winter swim to a summer picnic. Mat storage area may also be used for your yoga mat!
Dual in-built wet and dry compartments. Heavy tarpaulin waterproof pocket and bright yellow lining to see easily inside your bag. Additional features: an internal zip pocket, a key holder and 2 slash pockets.
High grade mechanical stainless steel buckle that will stand up to the most extreme negative (or positive) temperatures.
STRAIGHT TO OFFICE, AFTER THE SWIM
Retractable backpack straps, with large hidden pocket on back of the bag, which can accomodate a large laptop.
WINTER ENDS, SWIMMING NEVER DOES
Eira comes with an extra-light summer bag, to be worn high up on your back, while running to your favorite swim spot.
WE ARE A GLOBAL FAMILY
Eira may have been designed for our Helsinki family of ice swimmers, but we have a more extended vision: to unite the wild water and ice water swimmers around the globe, from Scandinavia to Canada, and to promote the health and wellness benefits of Finnish ice swimming to a wider audience.
WE EVEN THOUGHT ABOUT THE PACKAGING
RPET packaging that can be reused during your travels — no more industry standard throw-away polybag!
