Her first was 100N foam life jacket, (Swimmers/none swimmers) CE certified and designed to turn the nippers over onto their backs even in an unconscious state.
It Zips at the front, and has ties at the bottom. The adjustable waste band is easy to work and it locks off where you set it to.
The collar is huge and looks like it will protect well and there's a very large grab handle at the rear of the jacket for lifting them back in the boat.... .
Mega bright, mega reflective, she says its very warm
Crotch strap fitted and it doesn't hinder her in any way, there's a whistle under the collar at the front but its usually out whistling loudly and annoying the hell out of me... main point is though, she knows where it is and how to use it.
We tend to buy her ski suits as they are massively cheaper than wet suits, yes i know.... a ski suit isn't a wet suit lol, but lets face it at that young age they don't get the wear before they out grow them and she aint never gonna be out on the water if its iffy weather.
She's wearing one here whilst scoffing Pete's home made cake at Ullswater :lol
Consider tethers maybe too..... ?
