Swim Jacket Additional Information

SwimBest swim jackets are designed to allow your child to enjoy the water and help with learning to swim. The jacket positions the buoyancy around the child's chest which is where the natural buoyancy is and it helps keep them afloat. This type of floatation and support gives your little one’s freedom to use their arms and legs which helps maintain the forwards swimming position. This in turn helps with learning and practicing the correct swimming strokes without the restrictions that other floatation devices such as arm bands might give.

The SwimBest swim jacket provides this extra support via its 8 foam float adjustable buoyancy system. Floats can be removed as the wearers ability to swim progresses or if more buoyancy is needed in on location such as practicing back stroke.

Using a SwimBest swim jacket is a great way to supplement swimming lessons. Kids learn a lot in class but then they do need time to practice. Being able to practice without being worried about staying afloat helps kids learn to swim correctly faster, eventually giving your child the freedom to swim unassisted.

They’re fantastic for use on holidays too, even for those able to swim as a SwimBest float jacket helps if the wearer isn’t the strongest swimmer or gets tired, quite apart from the peace of mind it gives mum and dad in and around a busy pool. This, of course, takes nothing away from the need to maintain constant supervision.

Our jackets are made using excellent quality, soft and durable neoprene. They can also help keep the wearer warm as well as providing 50+ UV sun protection on areas of the body that jacket covers. Perfect for those sunny (or windy) beach days.

We do strongly recommend a snug fit as this stops the jacket riding up and gives the wearer maximum support when in the water. So please consult carefully the size guide provided.

Please never leave your child unattended in and around water. Like any swimming floatation device, this is not a Life Jacket that prevents drowning, it is a designed to enhance the wearers natural buoyancy while swimming or learning to swim.

We do highly recommend measuring the largest part of your child's chest (or upper part of the tummy for our smaller swimmers) and order via chest size and weight. The age recommendation is approximate and for guidance only.

If your child is on the limit of a size, or in-between sizes, we recommend choosing the next size up.
