    I'm an Age Group Triathlete and don't have the chance/time to train a lot in pools, but we have an Up ground Pool  in our backyard for the kids so I thought to give it a try. I have to say its much better than I had ever thought.
    It works really fine although you have to pace yourself with a heart rate monitor because there's no chance to measure speed/distance or time.

    It's definitely worth the money and a good alternative when you live in the Desert like me.

    I love this swim tether. It has a modest amount of flotation in the belt to assist in keeping you prone. It is comfortable and allows me to get a non-impact aerobic workout in the family pool. Shipping was quick and with a pair of goggles I was in the pool. I have recommended this product to everyone that has a pool in their backyard.

    I am a triathlete who travels for work periodically. Hotel gyms typically have treadmills and stationary bikes. How to keep up on training while on the go? This belt will do it for you. I swam varsity in college, so I can assure you that you will not "out swim" this belt. The harder you swim, the harder it pulls you back.

    On my maiden voyage with this, I did 2 minute repeats -- much like doing hill repeats on the bike or run. I don't think I'd enjoy doing a straight 15 minute swim, because there is no break and no opportunity to rest.

    It's a stiff bungee cord - not super-stretchy surgical tubing like what I was used to in my previous swim belt experience. I get the impression it will be long-lasting.

    The neoprene cover on the belt makes it very comfortable - without gouging or rubbing. The kit includes a carabiner so you can quickly detach the belt from the cord.

    You'll get immediate feedback about which part of your stroke is non-productive, because the cord will pull you backwards. I will probably take this belt to a group workout to let other people experience what it feels like.

    The only disadvantage I can think of is that -- because you are not moving forward in the water -- you produce no "bow wave." This makes breathing a little different. You need to turn your head slightly more to get air. If you don't already take advantage of the bow wave with your breathing, you might not notice the difference.

    This is an inexpensive, well-thought and executed product. Really glad I got it.

    Takes some getting use to but overall a really great product. I use it when I travel and don't have a pool big enough for lap swimming. Swimming against your resistance is by far a harder workout.

    Everyone who swims should have one of these !!

    I bought this last summer to do triathlon training in my above-ground pool at home.  It is very comfortable, it is super easy to tie down. In the above ground, it caused many waves off the sides, but I liked it because it helped me get used to waves for an open water swim. It is one of my best investments for the money!

    Great product, allows me to get my swims done even while travelling with access only to tiny hotel pools.  The workout is a bit tougher since you are pushing against stationary water at all times, but that just makes it that much easier when you get back to regular swimming.  Item is comfortable to wear, and doesn't draw nearly as many strange looks as I imagined.

    This was a replacement for a swim belt made of rubber tubing and it is a much more durable product. I used it in my swimspa everyday last year and look forward to using it when I open my spa in early May. It was also a much cheaper price than previous rubber belts.

    I am a competitive triathlete. I bought this so I could work on my other strokes as well as swim in my own pool when I can't make it to practice. It is easy to use and hook up-- I attached it to our ladder. The belt is a bit large so if you are thin, you have to really cinch it.

ABOUT THIS BRAND

TYR



Founded in Southern California in 1985, TYR™ has since developed a reputation for high-quality products and equipment. TYR competition swimwear and triathlon gear have been a dominant force in their respective industries. The company is also known for its TYR goggles, swim apparel, triathlon wetsuits and a wide variety of swimming equipment.

TYR was the first company to introduce a pair of goggles designed to fit a woman's face (the TYR T-72). TYR was also responsible for the famous red bathing suits featured on the hit television series "Baywatch." TYR consults with current and former athletes when developing its products. Swimmers know that TYR is a leader in swimsuits, warm-up suits, and swim training equipment. The TYR Tracer Series is one of the most advanced technical suit lines on the market. The TYR Hurricane wetsuits and the TYR Torque collections include top-of-the-line suits for the competitive swimmer.

TYR has also moved into competitive running equipment. From running shirts to shorts, its apparel is designed with the runner in mind. Built with moisture wicking fabric and antimicrobial material, TYR running apparel is designed to give the athlete the most comfortable, dry clothing on the market.

The name "TYR" is derived from the Norse god of warriors, who is said to have embodied victory and glory. Much the same can be said about the athletes who started TYR. Executive Vice President, Steve Furniss, was an Olympian who competed in the 1972 and 1976 Summer Games, and captained the 76th U.S. Olympic Swim Team.
