  • 10/30/2013 Increased confidence

    rating star By Tauna G.

    Just purchased this for our 7yo. It was a bit too chilly for the pool, but he tried it out in the hot tub this weekend. For the first time he was able to float on his back, and he had a lot more confidence in the water. It seems to fit a tad bit looser than I believe it's supposed to, but he's a skinny, slight kid. I'm hopeful that with some more time in the water, this is going to help him get swimming in a way that swim lessons never did!

  • 3/16/2013 No Jacket, No Pool!

    rating star By schie

    this is a snug fit, which is perfect for training as it feels more like part of the body rather than another thing to overcome. our grandkids bobbed around like barrels until 20-24 mos old, when they start to manuver somewhat. the difference between a life jacket (which has a mind of it's own) and a Konfidence jacket is immeasurable. a life jacket is more fun when it's off and a Konfidence jacket is more fun when on.

    This is our second jacket for our 4 year old and she loves it!  I used to teach swimming years ago to toddlers and this jackets provides the right support, freedom for kids to enjoy the water and build their own confidence while remaining safe.

  • 2/8/2013 Size mismatch

    rating star By Stan

    Ordered size 3-4  for my 3.5 yo, who is of average size. couldn't even bring it together and zip it on her. Then, i ordered the 5-6 size, that one was right on; however while wet it felt a little loose, that wouldn't be a problem if there was some tighten belt on the buttom portion. Overall, it looks good, and serves its purpose.

  • 12/30/2011 Absolutely wonderful! little grandson swam for hrs. with me in pool!

    rating star By L.H.

    My little grandson ,just turned 4, and just.learning to swim, could practice kicking, blowing bubbles, and just playing in the water. Previously, he had been relucant to stay long in the wqter.This vest fit him very comfortably, held him up ( I was with him and played with him all over the pool), and let him totally enjoy the water experience.  We swirled, twirled stayed in the deep end for most of the time...and he didn't want to get out....I finally had to coax him out of the pool after an hour and a half of sheer bliss.( I wore a vest too, so I wouldn't tire and could play with him as long as I wanted in the deep end)...It was paradise!..Wonderful vest!!!....
