Konfidence jacket - red stripe
This new red stripe Konfidence floatation jacket is the ultimate swimming and buoyancy aid for your child. The neoprene jacket has a lining with pockets for 8 foam floats that can be added or removed according to your child’s weight, swimming ability or confidence.
This red stripe flotation jacket has a yellow back to help make your child highly visible. The Konfidence Jacket promotes confidence in the water and can help develop correct swimming technique.
Safety note: This is NOT a life jacket and all children should be fully supervised when in or near water at all times.
Parents comment: “The Konfidence jacket has made our holidays so much more enjoyable as our son really benefited from being in the water wearing his jacket, and felt confident enough to play without having us having to hold his hand. The fit was great and did not hinder his movement at all. As he grew, we simply removed a float on each side which gave more room without buying another one”.
The Original Konfidence float jacket should be washed in cold clean water and hung to dry in the shade. Do not tumble dry and do not iron. If the jacket is used in the swimming pool or sea, chlorine and seawater can have a bleaching effect on the colours and damage Lycra threads, so to avoid degradation please rinse out in clean water as soon as possible. Please do not leave in a warm or hot car without rinsing first, as this can increase the chance of chlorine damage.
The major components we use are chunky self-locking YKK zips, nylon, polyester, 2.5 mm neoprene and Lycra, plus layered EPE foam floats.
We use flatlock seams (the same as those used on good quality wetsuits) on the shell to eliminate uncomfortable and unsightly ridged seams.
The Original Konfidence Jacket is tested to EN13138-1 (2008), the current standard for class B buoyant aids to swimming. This includes materials and buoyancy tests to ensure that it is well made, robust and fit for purpose. It has also been tested and complies with AS1900 (Australia) and SA SANS53138-2 (South Africa). In addition, we have tested the outer material for its UV protection qualities.
