Very simple but works. We take our twin boys swimming in these and arm bands and they can float about on their own (with us close by of course) They are 22 months old and in size 18 month- 2 year clothes so a little on the small side and the jackets fit perfectly.

These jackets were brilliant for all my little beginners. They gained great confidence in the water and once they were taken off the children were swimming. Thank you. Best swim jackets I have purchased. Great name. Only the best. SWIMbest!

Bought this for my 18 month old son as we were going on holiday where there was a pool. I bought the 18 to 36 month size and it fitted well. My LO did not mind wearing it and he felt confident splashing about in the shallow water, of course I still kept a very close eye on him! I also bought armbands to go with it for extra protection.

I got this over a year ago. We have a pool and we also live close to the beach. So I got this and a few other flotation devices for my then 1,5 year old daughter. She is 2.5 years old now and this is the only life vest we use. It's absolutely excellent, we used it over 50 times and we only washed with freshwater when it went from the pool to the sea or vice versa. The only damage to it was the labels got worn out by the chlorine. With this you can leave your toddler or young child to float without support from you (although you obviously need to be close by and watch carefully).

it's comfortable enough for her to wear even when not swimming if she is playing around the pool and I want the extra piece of mind.

the only addition I would recommend to the manufacturer, as a sailor, is to add a crouch strap. They make them much safer and add very little to the cost, my biggest concern with flotation devices and children is that if they raise their hands they'll sleep right off.

PS. The reason I'm writing the review today is because I came to buy another one for my second kid and I just realized this is one of the few products that really does deserve 5 stars.

I'm happy with this item, fits well and serves it's purpose. However, it can rub, so I would recommend wearing a sleeved t-shirt underneath to help keep soreness at bay.

Also, having read some of the negative reviews, it would appear that some people are using this product as a floatation device - rather than a buoyancy aid - and are then complaining when their (non-swimmer) child sinks. My message to you is: don't be a wally, these are designed to help your child swim, not to keep them afloat with no effort.

Seems to do the job ok and keeps my son happily afloat when teamed up with armbands. My only issue is with the size. It is described as age 3-6years however I struggle to zip it up on my 2.5year old! I would be surprised if it lasts him to 3years let alone 6!

A diificult review as the product works but I would not recommend this product without use of arm bands in addition qand hence becomes rather unnecessary. As noted in another review, for small children this vest can cause the child to float face down. Happened with my daughter and another little boy on recent holiday.
