  • 6/25/2018 Great for safety; poor design for getting through surf

    3 Review stars By Scott McCarty

    Regarding heavy surf: I have swum with this float for years in Southern California surf. Although it's a tremendous product for safety, it leaves a lot to be desired with respect to sturdiness of design. Attached photo shows my collection of waist straps from which the float has detached in moderate surf. The clip holding the float to the waist strap is very weak; it fails on average once a year for me (~200 swims). I have tried using metal carabiners to connect the parts, but the plastic clasps on the float fail. More bad news is that replacement parts for the float are not sold individually, so I've had to buy a whole new float each time. Latest solution: I just physically TIE the broken strap to the waist band (see photo); seems to work so far. Getting through moderate-to-large surf, there's definitely a strong force pulling the float away from your body. Solution is to grab the float and hold it close to chest as breakers roll over.

    I used this product during a fun ocean swim with several newish-to-the-ocean swimmers. The others said they could see the float easily and they could follow me: it made them feel safer. The drybag worked really well. I wish the leash was a bit longer for when I wanted to dive down to see interesting wildlife underwater.
