Kids Swim Vests by SwimWays

We belong to our local swim club and the kids love it! I get a little nervous with Hayley near the pool so this summer we have her in a Swim Vest by SwimWays.  She tends to walk too close to the big pool or bends over to hand her brother something by the pool and I fear she might fall in.  Being extra safe around water is a huge concern for both my husband and I.  We have Derek in swim lessons while Hayley is learning to feel comfortable near the water but always cautious and careful.

As a SwimWays Swim Ambassador I was provided with a new life jacket for both kids.  Derek hasn’t used his much yet because we are working on his swim lessons and he stays on the side of the pool he can stand in.  Hayley, on the other hand, doesn’t walk near the swim club without hers on.  Hayley’s SwimWays vest fits her perfectly and I like how the shoulders and neckline isn’t too bulky.  I have found with some swim vests/life jackets that the jackets float up higher then the child and it seems uncomfortable.

Since this fits so nicely, doesn’t ride up or squeeze too tight, Hayley never fights me when I want to put it on her.  Which, for a three year old girl, is a nearly impossible task!

About The SwimWays Swim Vest

The SwimWays Swim Vest helps kids explore the water with confidence! The sturdy foam inserts of our swim vest provide children with balanced flotation, allowing them to achieve two pre-swimming positions: Floating upright, or leaning forward to paddle. Front zipper with safety closure allows for easy on and off and the high quality, brightly colored fabric is soft and comfortable.

  • A comfortable learn to swim aid for children.
  • Provides support while your child learns to balance and paddle – important pre-swimming skills.
  • Sturdy foam inserts provide balanced flotation.
  • Front zipper with safety closure for easy on and off.
  • Adjustable harness between legs ensures the vest stays in place.

  1. I would have loved one of these when Zoe was little! Swim vests were always a battle, which made water parks challenging! Very nice.

  2. What a cutie! Safety in the water is huge and stressful. Looks like you found something to help ease my summer nerves!

  3. I see these all over at the pool! I love how they look comfortable and have the zip closure… cute colors to boot!

  4. I need a new floating device for my son. I’ll check these out. Thanks!

  5. Ryan has one of these and we love it!
