Konfidence youth jacket - pink/lilac
The extremely popular youth swim floatation jackets are perfect for hydrotherapy, learning to swim or for just additional buoyancy in the water. Designed for able and disabled children.
Made of flexible wetsuit material, the flotation jackets give added warmth in the water, have adjustablebuoyancy with eight removable soft foam floats around the body, and has a removable and adjustable crotch strap for added support.
This is not a lifejacket and will not prevent drowning, so should not be used as one.
The Konfidence Youth 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 Konfidence Youth 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.
