My kids LOVE the water! Whether it be a pool, the lake, or a sprinkler, they are drawn to it. While I want them to have a good time, their safety is of utmost importance to me. Having good personal flotation devices for the younger kids is imperative. Sea Squirts Life Jackets from SwimWays are perfect for keeping little ones safe around water.
These vests are US Coast Guard Certified Type III Personal Flotation Devices. They have a quality neoprene outer cover and inner fabric liner that makes them extremely comfortable and the adjustable straps allow for a perfect fit. They use buoyancy technology to help kids achieve greater control and stability in the water. I took the younger kids to a pool party the other day and was excited to try out the vests.
The Sea Squirts PDF is a very high quality, well made vest and I was really happy with the fit. It fit snugly but at the same time, it was comfortable. We’ve used life vests before that didn’t fit right and my son complained the whole time he was wearing it. I never heard a peep about this one. Plus the cool dolphin fin on the back made the vest super appealing to him and he couldn’t wait to put it on. I was a little worried that the fin might not be great out of the water and that I may have to take the vest off for him to eat lunch at the table. However, it folded flat to allow him to sit comfortably in a chair. The fin is also water tight so I don’t have to worry about it filing with water.
At first my son was a little nervous and wanted me to hold on to him while he floated. After a bit, he got brave and wanted to jump off the side of the pool to me.
Once he saw that the vest kept him from sinking, he wanted to jump over and over! The Sea Squirt vest did a great job of keeping his head above water while still allowing him to easily maneuver through the water. Finally, he got the confidence to let go of me and swim solo.
Since my 5-year-old was at school, my friend’s son used our second Sea Squirts vest.
Our cute little dolphins had a blast! Not only did the life vests give them some reassurance but they also made me feel much more secure.
The Sea Squirts life vests are available in several designs including Orca Whale, Blue Dolphin, Pink Dolphin, or Clown Fish and they are currently on sale starting at $42.95. One lucky reader will win a Sea Squirts Life Vest for themselves!
