ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

The word from the Product Manager.
After observing the needs of children in the discovering swimming phase, we invented this new design of vest to provide comfort and ease in practice. Its simple shape envelops the torso and adapts to a child's size, while freeing the arms and shoulders for greater freedom of movement. Children using it must already be comfortable in the water because the buoyancy volume selected for this vest will place a child just on the surface to perform the first swimming movements.
Nabaiji's three LEARNING TO SWIM experiences
Nabaiji offers 3 experiences: Discovering the water, Discovering swimming and Discovering underwater. The SWIMVEST+ swim vest is part of the "Discovering swimming" experience: the children are comfortable in the water but have difficulty in floating They use their arms and legs and need great freedom of movement to benefit from their experience. This swim vest gives them the right level of buoyancy needed to let them progress and empower their swimming.
Recommendations for use
This vest is not a life vest, but a learning-to-swim vest. For use under constant adult supervision.

    Not a safe product

    Bought this swimvest for my 5 year old son for holiday. Day 1 the strap near the buckle nearly tore right off. On day 2 the other strap starting tearing. The result being the front buckle was at high risk of just unravelling at any moment while in the water and the vest sliding off completely. Highly dangerous and was not used again. Didn’t last 2 days. Avoid. Decathlon should stop selling this product and review its quality/safety.

    My daughter 3.8 yrs old was unable to float properly with this. She faced difficulty in floating and we had to return this product.

    Brand response :


    Hello Ameya,

    Thank you for your feedback on the swim vest as it helps us to improve our products year after year.

    I apologize for the bad experience that you have faced with the swim vest. Ideally the swim vest is only a buoyancy aid that keeps the child buoyant, horizontally in water provided s/he kicks and flutters the arms. This is to help your child to learn to swim. Here's a small video to help you to discover our Swim vest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EFUHS6ou1Q

    If you have any other queries, I stay available. Have a good day.
