This inflatable tow-float includes a leash and waist strap. It is bright and is recommended for open water swimmers in all bodies of water to increase visibility to other open water users.
The tow-float has a double airbag system which is easily inflated. The adjustable belt design clips securely around the swimmer's waist and the leash ensures that the product remains out of swim stroke range whilst swimming and is very low drag (you generally don't notice it is there). If you need to rest you can hold onto the float and it will easily support an adult's weight.
This float is perfect for bodies of water where there are boat users to make the swimmer more visible. It's also ideal for groups of swimmers so you can be easily seen from the shore or in the water by fellow swimmers. The tow-float is recommended for taking children into the open water, as you can spot them very quickly and they can hold onto the Swim Secure tow-float if they need a rest.
In the annual Chillswim Coniston event all 750 swimmers use the Swim Secure tow-float for the 5.25 mile length of lake swim. The tow-float makes it very easy for the water safety team to see the swimmers, even in choppy water, and can be used by swimmers in wetsuits or non-wetsuits.
Highly recommended for open water swimmers in all outdoor conditions and recommended by the Lake District National Park Authority for safer open water swimming.
Size before inflating: 39cm x 25cm
Please note, this is not a buoyancy aid, it does not give any buoyancy whilst swimming. The tow-float floats behind the swimmer on a short leash.
