    Good companion to go with you for OWS

    Pros:
    - easy to use and carry
    - adjustable strap so depending on your height (or length of your legs) you can kick freely without noticing the buoy is around you
    - the pocket on the side can store small things like the paddles

    Cons:
    - the inner pocket is not completely water proof (sometimes water can get in even you might just want to take a towel with you - as recommended in the corp site.)

    Very useful for swimming safely

    Very useful product that will enable swimmers to swim in open water with a sense of security and safety. Something easy and reliable to grab on to when you feel tired or unable to continue. Easily attachable to waist and the buoy will hardly be felt while swimming and it will not get in your way. Fluorescent orange color makes it highly visible in case of any emergency; whistle is also attached. A very useful feature is that the buoy has an interior storage pocket for small items to be stored. It's inflatable so can be stored with ease after usage. I think this item is extremely useful not just for open water swimmers but also for beginner swimmers like young children swimming unaided and unaccompanied in pools etc. It's a great security blanket for swimmers!
