I bought 2 childrens life jackets and an adult one for myself and they are worth their weight in gold. I used them in the sea for the three of us for use with our dinghy. Within the first hour of being in the sea my 6 year old daughter toppled out of the dinghy as a wave broke. Whilst we weren't out far at all the life jacket helped her until I got to her. Once she realised she could swim with the life jacket on it was hard to reign her in!! These jackets gave me the confidence to go further out with the jackets on, even for myself who can swim well enough in the sea! I would say these are invaluable for children and adults alike when going out in the water. They fit great, are adjustable, very comfortable and do not hinder your movement in any way. These were also delivered very quickly from the company - all in all a great buy and money very well spent.

This fits my large 7 year old son perfectly. Extremely well made jacket and makes this parent feel less anxious when it's being worn on the boat!

After a weekend of intense research I purchased this childrens buoyancy life jacket. My son was two and we wanted to take him with us on a sailing trip in Greece. Of course we had our concerns with safety on a sailboat with a two year old and this greatly relieved our fears.

The lifejacket zips in the front as well as having another buckle in the front and a strap below to ensure that he does not slip out. The vest wraps completely around him and should he fall in the water, he would be turned right side up.

We took him in the sea with this jacket while we were swimming and it worked perfectly and allowed for my son to fully enjoy the sailing trip. The lifejacket was comfortable for him and he did not dislike wearing it during the trip.

Subsequent to this trip we also took him on a river boat trip on the Shannon in Ireland as well and felt very comfortable to bring him along and we were happy he could share these special trips with us. Something which would not be possible if we could not have as much confidence in his buoyancy lifejacket.

Brilliant jacket, brilliant price and brilliant service from Big Orange Watersports. We have previously bought aqua shoes and wetsuits from Big Orange and knew we could rely on them to provide a quality product with their usual exceptional levels of customer service. Buy with confidence.

I brought this as it stated that it was 100n but it is only 50n. So it is not fit for the purpose I brought it for. However it does seem to be very well made and would be perfect for in shore sailing. It has a whisle for gaining attention it fits well and is not too bulky. I brought the one for a larger child. It is very bright is should a child go overboard they should be easily seen. I would recomend a hardness with a life line depending on the type of sailing.

I kayak alot, and enjoy taking my toddler along with me. But as a parent I was looking for a lifejacket that protected my son should the very worst happen. I wear a Personal Flotation Devise (PFD) that "assists" in buoyancy should you end up in the water but they do require some swimming competency on the part of the user, however as a responsible parent sharing his hobby with a young child a lifejacket such as this Marinepool is a must.
It has plenty of soft buoyancy around the chest and neck (while the back is minimal) meaning it should maintain the child in a safe head up / face up position to prevent drowning even if unconscious (in theory). Its made to a high standard from very bright and durable material. Reflective strips, high quality webbing straps, solid clip buckle, heavy duty zip and the inclusion of emergency whistle all add to the confidence that this is a reliable and safe product for my child to wear when out on the water.
Much to my son's amusement we did test the product close to shore, it worked as intended.

Great lifejacket for our 18 month old. Got the 10-20kg as our daughter is quite tall for her weight (11kg), fit perfect - used it when we were going out in the boat, tested it a few times before hand just paddling around (we normally swim with her without a lifejacket in the shallows, but this was to wear in the boat in case we capsized or sank) and it was good - except she was obsessed with blowing on the whistle... This has a crotch strap so it stops the jacket riding up when they get tossed in the water.
