Introducing the Neo Game Changer: Your Portable Adventure Companion  

Our bestselling double-layered change mat has been designed for versatility and practicality. The top side is repurposed from upcycled wetsuits, while the bottom layer features a waterproof ground sheet sourced from scout tents. A must-have for ocean swimmers and surfers!

Perfect for every adventure. Whether you're changing after a wild swim, surf session, camping trip, or simply at the beach or pool, the Neo Game Changer is your ideal companion. Designed to be comfortable but hardy and easy to use. Roll it up and secure it with the elastic so you can take it anywhere. 

Comfortable and absorbent. The neoprene (wetsuit) layer on the top side offers unmatched comfort, thermal insulation, and absorbency. It's perfect for standing on during chilly mornings or on uncomfortable surfaces like gravel carparks.

Waterproof and wipeable. Beneath the neoprene, a waterproof layer prevents water or mud from penetrating the ground. It's easily wipeable, ensuring that when rolled up, the inner damp mat won't dampen your belongings or gear in your bag.

Versatile. Not just for changing, the Neo Game Changer is also handy, comfortable, and thermal for sitting or kneeling outdoors. Whether gardening, watching a match, sitting on a park bench, or in a kayak, it provides reliable support.

The change mat is also handy, comfortable and thermal to sit or kneel on while outdoors. For example gardening, sitting on a park bench, watching a match or while in a kayak.

As with the nature of upcycling, slight variations will apply to each final product as each carries character from its adventurous past. These may be creases, fading, different shades of black, variations in stitching detail, a hint of graphics, shape, thickness etc. No two will be exactly the same.

We know the adventure doesn’t need to stop for these materials just because they’ve come to the end of their original purpose. Continue the adventure!

Upcycling process:

Due to the nature of upcycling reclaimed materials and also the fact that our products are made individually by hand – each product is therefore unique and carries character from it’s adventurous past. We feel this adds a little something special. This means that no two items will be exactly the same and many items will carry features from it’s past like marks and patterns, prints and numbers. This also means materials may vary in colours and shades and may have some fading or wear. This does not effect the quality. Real colour of products may vary slightly from the images used and due to differences in screens and monitors.

Due to the nature of upcycling and availability of materials, many of our products and designs will be one-off pieces or limited editions.

Really happy to have found this!

I just bought the Neo swim changing mat as a gift for my sister - i originally saw the company featured on the Irish tv show ‘Heated’ and love how they use recycled wetsuits & tents to make new products.

This little mat just looks fantastic - I love how the recycled materials go together and are made even better with the use of stitching & finishing materials.

My sister is a surfer & wakeboarder so I think she’ll love the concept too and I look forward to seeing her using the mat when we go swimming together!

Great product

Great for hiking and camping trips as well as after water sports. Bring mine on all my treks now and never have to sit on a soggy log or damp grass! Lightweight to carry, rolls up small and comfy to sit/stand on.

Love my neo mat

Game changer’s a great name for this product! Coming out of the water it is so nice to reward my feet with this mat that protects them from the cold and the bumpy stones on the beach. The neoprene feels warm too. Maybe it is - I can’t tell as my feet are always numb after a swim! The mat is so well crafted and fun to see the original wetsuit forms in it. It is so light and portable, perfect size to pack. I was really impressed by the packaging. Not a scrap more than needed & yet artfully presented and a treat to receive in the post. Hope more shops follow suit.
