    Good price

    Bought it for my 18 y/o son. Good quality and good safety. But, he doesn't want to wear the crotch straps, He says it hurts when he's in the water. All other kids seem to be find with it. Do you have tips? Should I just cut it?

    Brand's answer :

    Dear Jenny,

    Thank you for your contact with us. Unfortunately this is very important part of the BA. In some extreme situations this vest could slide out from user without this strap being in place. Specially in the strong current waters. I can only recommend to maybe surround it with some thin sponge to make it softer and more comfortable to use.

    Kind regards,

    take care
    well made, comfortable rugged misslabelled

    When I got home I found my 70N buoyancy aid was labelled 50N bouyancy, on returning to the store I found all sizes were labelled 50N buoyancy, even the smallest ones which could give the unwary to think they had super buoyancy. I did find one aid exactly same as the one I'd bought but labelled correctly with 70N, and the staff were great changing it for me.
