A key bit of our winter swim kit - Core-warmer or Haramaki. Also known as: kidney warmer, belly-warmer, bump band, tummy tube, body warmer, back-warmer...
The haramaki is a traditional Japanese item of clothing. A tube of soft, stretchy fabric that you pull on and wear around your middle. This 'core warmth' effect spreads to the rest of the body. Fantastic for a quicker recovery when getting out of the sea. Helps with the 'after-drop' effect of cold water swimming and allows your core temperature to recover in less time.
