Vitamin D Tops.
Science now tells us that light tanning creates vitamin D which is good for immunity, bones, inflammation & general health. 
Who Knew.

You can Swim in Tanies & they're Quick Drying

Light Tanningis Good.
Burning is Bad.

Like everything in life Its about Balance.

Chemical Free Protection.

Lotions are a good invention but some humans are allergic to some of the chemicals.
You've never worn health like this.
Also lotions will damage the rubber on wetsuits.

Tanies are worn under safety vests instead of using Lotion.
Lotion on arms sweats down into the hands making them slippery & dust sticks to the lotion.
Oh so Pro

Let Filtered sun thru to create vitamin D. 

The darker your skin the more sun you need. 

No slippery lotion needed here. 

Simplified Protection

Throw it on & forget about the sun knowing you're slowly building a base. 

Nothing short of Amazing.

As they're semi see thru

Cotton & rashies block vitamin D where Tanies let filtered sun through.

Tanies are great for Sport

as lotion runs down the arms into the hands making them slippery.


Wear them under your T-shirt.

Even horses wear Tanies

Studies have found links between low vitamin D levels and depression, blood pressure, heart disease, asthma & premature death

Tanies hide Scars & Rashes.  

Treat Yourself

Tanies are generally worn tight like a rashie or an All Blacks jersey as they're super stretchy & then you can swim or surf in them


Their ventilating polyester fabric keeps us cooler in the heat so they're ideal for outside work wear.

They don't wrinkle so they always look fab.

Bring on Nature.

Tanies are made of thousands of strong thick honeycomb hexagons that are hard wearing & stretch in 6 directions, creating super comfort & movement. 

And the holes release heat & sweat quicker than summer cotton

We researched a super fine cotton that would tan you but it would wear out too quickly which is not environmental.

Reduce Insect Bites

Fashion Story 1

When slipon shoes first became available for men in the 70s, millions of humans thought they were too feminine, but eventually they followed the more practical men 

Fashion Story 2

There was a time when All Blacks wouldn't have worn tight gear but humans slowly move forward. 

Up until now see thru clothing was the domain of females & the rainbow community But the truth is Tanie material was found to be the best for building vitamin D without getting burnt. 

So guys, its time to brake thru another taboo.
