“An incredibly well designed product, with the technical credentials to match. Truly 5 star.” Aquaite on The Spartan Short


Huge thanks to David Swift, founder of Aquaite, for surprise testing our Spartan shorts out in the British Virgin Isles. 

David founded Aquaite as a natural lifestyle brand to promote living a fun, active, outdoor life. Aquaite`s just starting out, too, and already makes some excellent products.

In our eyes, David`s in a great position to test our Spartan shorts. Not only is he a hugely talented windsurfer and surfer, just like his brother (professional windsurfer Robby Swift), he`s also got a great eye for detail. Looking at the gear his company makes and from our hands-on testing of the impeccably crafted Walnut iPhone 5 case, he seems to be doing a great job.

Keep up the good work, David, and thanks for the review!
