product description
The Safe Swimmer Float is an open water swim buoy for swimmers and triathletes that doubles as a storage bag. Unlike running, when a swimmer suffers a stroke, heart attack or unconsciousness you sink and disappear below the water. As a recent incident at Christmas Lake in Minnesota demonstrated, when observers saw the SaferSwimmer Float not moving, it alerted them in time to revive and save the life a swimmer who other­ wise could have been added to the not insignificant number of open water swimmers who have drowned in recent years. Most notably, the great American open water swimmer, Fran Crippen.

The SaferSwimmer SF-06 Float is specifically designed by the ISHOF to provide a safety aide for open water swimmers, serving three important functions without hindering performance or hindering your stroke.

Safe Swimmer Float Features:
  • Bright Orange makes it visible to boaters, jet skis, kite boarders or other potential human hazards while you are swimming
  • Can be used as a floatation device in the case of panic, cramps, dizziness, or injury and it can also be used to rescue others
  • Unique spacious pocket design let's you keep your "stuff' safe, dry and with you while swimming across rivers, lakes and/or in the ocean
  • Made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane used in the manufacture of inflatable boats and white water rafts, providing superior durability
Note: The belt fits waist sizes up to 38 inches. For larger waist sizes please order the Extender Belt.

Shipping weight: 1.5 lbs.

If you do any open water training, this is a MUST HAVE. Keeps you visible to boats and my wife can easily spot me if I go swim at the beach. You can also store items in it that you don't want to leave on shore, like wallet, keys, flip-flops, cell phone, etc. I can barely tell its on, and its nice knowing I have a float nearby should an emergency arise.

Might save your life - or someone else's

I take this to all my races to pre-swim the course. I have found it especially useful when I go to Worlds and have only my bike for transportation. Then I can store my room key and bike lock key in the pouch while I am swimming. I have given quite a few of these away to friends. I'm not sure if they wanted one, but I bet I made their spouse happy! I used it pre-swimming the Kona course and passed it on to a friend who got cramps - far, far away from shore. It's handy when you're swimming a new course and you want to "hang out" to check for current or sight lines.
Highly visible, pouch stores valuables while you are swimming

Great Product

Its sometimes hard to find someone to go on open water swim. With this you feel safe to go and swim alone. Highly visible to boats and carries gear. I suggest this to any swimmer or triathlete.

Safety First

I do a few open water swims a month and wanted a way to be more visible to other swimmers, boats, kayaks, etc. I've been told from fellow swimmers that this float is very visible which helps give me a peace of mind that I'm as visible as possible. As an added bonus, there's enough room to store a set of flip flops, phone, car keys, wallet, etc, with room to spare. Would highly recommend this to all open water swimmers!

Used mine in lake first time this past weekend. Was told I was very visible from shore. Great comfort as there was current and waves. Did not hinder my swim at all. Glad I made the purchase

Works great
May 22, 2016
I do a lot of solo open water swims in a lake and didn't like the idea of strapping a floatation device to my leg like some of the other products. I wanted something that would make me more visible to boaters and carry my phone and shoes in case of emergency or if I wanted to exit the water somewhere else and run home. Also, since I'm tethered to a float, it will me much easier to find and recover my body if I drown and sink. ;)
Doesn't get in the way while swimming - I forget it's even there Large enough to fit shoes and phone Can hold on to it if I cramp or need to rest

Great for cat swimming
April 16, 2016
I attach this to my cat before throwing her into the pool. She loves it and, i think, feels safe. Just kidding, I'm allergic to cats, so I do not have one. I have now used this once in the pool to get use to it. I will take it to openwater as soon as I get a new wetsuit. It worked in the pool - everybody saw me and no one came into my lane!

I don't open water swim without it
October 22, 2013
I always use this in open water swims since buying this in July 2013. I swim in a non-motorized lake but if you swim where boats and jet skis are, then they can quickly identify you with this float attached. People from shore can easily spot you (easier than if wearing a bright swim cap). It does not impede swimming. It's cavity fits my phone, car keys, wallet, clothes and towel. If you cramp up or panic in the water, then you could hang on to this as a flotation device and just kick back to shore.
