  • 11/25/2008 Konfidence Jacket for 2-3 yrs old

    1 Review Stars By kali

    unfortunately we found that its very tight outside the water and rides up to the face when in the water. it also does not keep my son (2 yrs old and 2 mo) a float in the least. overall i felt that i purchased the "best on the market" for a very high price and got very little in return. we are trying to add a cloth to the bottom with velcro to keep it from hiking up to his face in water, but its not something that i am happy about. if i could return in and get money back including shipping i would, but unfortunately i purchased online. i cannot recommend this for ages 2-3 years old and i doubt i'll purchase it for later years.

    5 Review Stars 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!

  • 2/11/2009 Fantastic Swim Jacket

    5 Review Stars By M.T.

    I bought this for my 2.5 year old son. He loves the water but wanted to be more independent.  It took a few minutes for him to realize he had to keep his head up but the jacket kept him in a great position.  I bought the small jacket (my son is very slim) and it fits snug and did not ride up.  He is really doing well kicking and moving his arms to move through the water.  Well worth the money and very good quality.

    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.

    3 Review Stars By jennwood

    the vest is nice, but fits very snugly (I imagine this is so it won't ride up when they are in the water) but does feel a little on the short side for an average 2.5 year old.  My son is just 28 lbs and the small is quite hard to zip it up but he seems comfortable when wearing it.  If your child is on the heavier side, I'd suggest you get the medium.  Wearing this vest and water wings, my son can easily 'swim' around the pool on his own, without bobbing forward and submerging his face.  Without the water wings, he can and does still fall face forward at times.  Also, what's not pictured here is the back, which says in rather large letters 'the original konfidence jacket'. I hate big logos and writing on things, so had I known this I likely would have chosen the more plain Speedo version.

    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.

    I have tried many swimming vests and I wish this was the first one I bought!! My Son and Doughter both swam fine and it did not ride up on their necks like all the other vests do...

  • 6/7/2009 Just What I Needed

    5 Review Stars By Katehawks

    I bought this product for our Memorial Day vacation, and it worked incredibly well. My 2-year old daughter had a ball, and didn't want me to touch her when she was swimming at the end of the trip. The product does exactly what it says - gives children incredible confidence in the water. We used ours exclusively in the pool. I will say that the vest seemed tight on my 26-pounder. I got the smallest size available, which is supposed to start at 26 lbs.
