If you are after a tow float without a dry storage compartment, this is the model for you. This is the most basic buoy which is recommended by governing safety organizations for all open water swimmers and triathletes. Since it does not contain a dry bag, it is strictly used as a visible marker for the oncoming traffic (ex: boats, jet skis, surfers, wake boarders etc.). It also features a more prominent handle which can be used by the swimmer to grab onto the buoy when in distress. If you need to rest, you can easily hold onto the buoy which will have no problem supporting your weight.
This buoy is an ideal safety product for any individual or group swimmers who want to have a bit of extra safety with them for a swim. It is recommended that all children have these tow floats with them when swimming in any open water body (be it a lake or a sea). Let's keep swimming fun and safe together!
What can I fit inside?
There is no dry compartment in this model. It is strictly a tow buoy only, so short answer is "nothing fits inside" :). If you do need a waterproof storage bag inside your buoy or a different colour (pink, green, yellow), please see other 360swim SaferSwimmer™ float models.
How to use it?
Inflate the air bag only buoy by blowing into the valve and twist the valve cap to close. Adjust your belt to fit your waist and put it on, so it snugly sits around your hips. You can also adjust the length of the leash separating the buoy from the waist belt based on where you'd want your tow buoy to sit. After that, hop into your favorite body of water and just swim, enjoy and repeat. And most importantly, have fun and be safe!
