About Bare

WE’RE NOT JUST IN YOUR ELEMENT; WE WERE BORN THERE

In a small factory on the coast of British Columbia—the brainchild of 2 divers determined on crafting a drysuit capable of surviving the frigid waters of the Canadian Pacific Ocean. With every stitch, our founders innovated. Through every failure, they pushed. Not for profit. For performance. To bring the sport of diving, equipment that fit better, functioned better, and lasted longer.

WE’VE SOLIDIFIED OUR HERITAGE AND THE PRINCIPLES WE WERE FOUNDED ON.

Our reputation for premier dive equipment has been upheld by the heart and passion each of our workers puts into every suit they make. Because, like our founders, they don’t just make the suits, they dive in them. It is this strong culture and unrelenting dedication to fit, craftsmanship, and innovation that has helped take us from that small shop in British Columbia to a global brand.
