Only for use when naked and unsuitable for children????
on 22 August 2015
Seems fine on inspection although I am concerned by the the manual, from which I will quote directly: "At the same time, it should be noted that people wearing clothing, rubber boots, etc. cannot expect the lifejacket to turn them in the water automatically". Now rubber boots I can understand, but clothing generally? I absolutely DO expect the lifejacket to turn my child automatically if they are wearing clothing. That doesn't seem like an unreasonable expectation to me - in fact, I'm struggling to even imagine the circumstance in which they would need a lifejacket but NOT need clothing.
Also, although this was sold as a 20/35 kg model there is a rather ambiguous section of the manual which may or may not mean that it is unsuitable for children under 40kg. Again I will quote directly and leave you tomdraw your own conclusions - it is too poorly worded for me to come to a firm conclusion:
"NB! For children less than 40kg:
Teach your children to,float in this lifejacket! The lifejacket ismdesigned to keep your child in the correct float position.
Warning: because of the special distribution of their body weight, small children may still lie face down in the water. The relatively heavy head and diapers etc. of small children may lead to a child floating in the incorrect float positiom."
