The Restube Classic is the most popular general purpose model. Probably because it has the option to be worn horizontally or vertically on the hip, includes a small key pocket and whistle.
Self-inflatable buoyancy aid for swimming and snorkeling.
Because this inflatable buoyancy aid is around your waist, it is widely used by parents who want extra safety around ocean currents, tidel nuisance and general safety. Also ideal for snorkeling to feel an extra sense of security. Would you drive without a seat belt? Swim in the open water with peace of mind. When mounted vertically, the bag has minimal resistance while swimming. In addition, a whistle and a small pocket are integrated.
The Restube is not a Coast Guard approved life jacket because it does not go over your head or wrap you around. It won’t help you if you pass out. It acts as a buoyancy buoy to rest on and a buoy for easy swimming.
