Ok, but better at the same price

Works well, but limitted volume and deflates a little.

Great quality and price

Have tested this out on a river swim and it performed really well - enough space in the dry bag for towel etc and the external mesh pocket came in handy too.

Excellent swim buoy

Bought 2 of these as I like sea swimming and having a decent visible buoy is a must in my opinion. This ticks almost all the boxes and the only caution I would recommend is to use a ziplock bag within the folding pocket on the buoy which clearly states that it is not water tight, that aside this really is an excellent buoy and very good value for money. I definitely recommend it if you are in need for open water and are thinking safety, I wished they did one in bright yellow or luminous green.

Does the job

1 Year in- one side air seal broken, other side value let’s water in. Great for popping in front door keys towl - sandals- etc.

Great product

Great visibility, stability and streamline.

Can’t find a fault with it

Does the job

Storage and size are great. Very easy to use and keep everything dry. Mine probably has a stitching issue, it loses a bit of air. Very flashy, so that's great!

This worked better than all my other tow floats: 1. Only one that comes with safety whistle 2. Large dry bags with 3 secure fastener 3. Useful side pocket that can store a small water bottle 4. Cheapest among them (Cheap & good. Great value for money) 5. Flat inflation & deflation valve flushed into the float.

Удобен и практичен

Буя може да се използва както за плуване, така и като надуваем аксесоар за къпане в морето. Възможно е дори да се използва като възглавничка с място за съхранение на багаж на плажа. Колана се закрепя лесно и не пречи на плуването. Клапите за надуване са изключително удобни и позволяват лесно издуване или донадуване по време на плуване в открито море. Материала, от който е изработен буя изглежда здрав и стабилен и очаквам да издържи дълго време. Доволен съм от покупката, внася допълнително ниво на сигурност при самостоятелни занимания в открити води.

Safety during open-water swimming:

When swimming in open water, you are strongly advised to use a buoy so that boats and the rescue services can find you easily. The buoy can also be used to rest when the swimmer is tired or suffering from cramp. A whistle is attached to the buoy so that you can make your presence known with an audible signal if necessary.


Deflated: 40 cm x 75 cmInflated: 30 cm x 55 cmThe belt is adjustable between 75 cm and 125 cmThe strap is adjustable between 50 cm and 90 cm

Buoy position:

The strap of the buoy should be adjusted to ensure that it is positioned above the swimmer's rear upper leg.


The net is on the side in the water to keep your supplies cool!

How to inflate your product

For this buoy, you must make sure the bag is closed: put your things in the bottom and middle of the buoy, slightly inflate each valve, expel most of the remaining air, roll up the closure, fasten at the three attachment points and inflate the remainder of the two chambers. This way there will be no air inside nor will the buoy deflate.
