Too Small - not enough floatationl for typical adult, otherwise OK
By Daniel T. from Phoenix, AZ on 4/17/2016
I like the grip options, but not enough flotation for me - somewhat muscular build.
Hollow plastic sounds clunky but seems durable enough. Will give it to my daughter to use. I'm going to order a larger traditional foam board.
An Essential for Ind. Open Water Swimmers
By Eric from Harmony, PA on 4/11/2016
I use this product about 3-4 times a week during the summer months in medium size lakes. While I do not recommend swimming alone (or at least without notifying someone), this is a great piece of equipment for those looking to swim open water any period of time. Unless it is a extremely windy day with high waves, you will not even notice the float towing behind you. The water-proof pouch would slightly leak on occasion (again, this was on extremely rough wave days), but was great for storing mini items such as keys or a protein bar. I would recommend this product to any open water swimmer regardless of level or experience.
Good for visibility and valuables. Clip is not very strong
By Sandy from Chicago on 1/26/2016
I bought this item for a vacation in Costa Rica as I was concerned for the security of my belongings while swimming. I am also an open water swimmer in Lake Michigan and have had close calls with jet skis etc and thought this would improve visibility.
Since it is winter I have not had a chance to use it in the lake but I am sure it will be fine.
However be warned that the clip which fastens the device to the belt is not strong and completely broke on my second use in moderate surf. I am able to tie the device onto the belt but it is no longer unobstrusive when swimming nor easily removed.
As a slender woman I found the belt to be at the edge of usefulness for me also. I need it to be at its smallest setting and it often loosens of its own accord.
I can fit a remarkable amount of stuff inside it: flip flops, small towel, hat, sunglasses, and shirt. So my need for security is well met.
Great quality. Fits many ages.

My almost 3 year old daughter loves it. Even though it's winter she wears it in the tub and it stays on her feet.
