  • 10/18/2010 Not enough buoyancy

    3 Review stars By John T.

    My wife and I bought this for my 2 year old son (26 months) who weighs just shy of 26 lbs. Being the minimum weight for the vest, we figured the vest might be a touch big and that we'd have to remove some of the flotation inserts so that he wouldn't be too high in the water. The vest actually fits pretty well, but it does have a little room to grow into. However, the flotation inserts are not sufficient to keep his mouth and nose above water. When he exhales, he lowers in the water just enough to swallow water. We also have a swimming tube (an air filled, tire-like inner tube fitted in a vest with a strap that goes down between the legs to keep the vest in place) and he is much more secure in the water when using the tube. The tube is getting tight and the strap rubs on his inner leg, so we thought we'd try the Konfidence jacket. If the jacket had a little more buoyancy, it would be pretty good. As it is, I'm not sure what will happen as my son gains weight.

  • 8/6/2010 Very snug fit on my 2 year old

    3 Review stars By Mom in Meriden

    I found it too snug for my 2 year old son, even though the size is for 2 to 3 years old.

  • 2/23/2009 good for small kids

    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.
