Body Glove sells surf and dive apparel and products at thousands of retailers across the US and in over 60 countries. The company was founded by the Meistrell Brothers, who created the first functional wetsuit in 1953. From those wetsuits Body Glove began to branch out into other categories; now making wetsuits, swimsuits, clothing, shoes, life vests, sunglasses, wakeboards, towables, backpacks and snorkeling equipment with worldwide presence.
