These are a great idea for boating, snorkeling, and kids.. anything to do wirh water! Highly recommend this product
I have paddled for over 20 years, mostly river paddling and never used a life jacket as It would get to hot. I have since switched over to ocean paddling and quickly could see the dangers, so purchased a leg rope and wore a jacket. I considered the life jacket my second safety option.
I was paddling with our club and mentioned that using a life jacket made me over head and wasn't enjoying it. Some of the members I was paddling with said they use the RESTUBE, and I should try it.
I noticed the benefits straight away, It wasn't to hot (nothing wrapped around my body) and gave me peace of mind (I could even use it to wave for attention or help rescue someone else).
After my last experience I am still shaking my head as to how it helped turned a life treating experience into something I could manage.
In rough conditions I was paddling home when a freak wave knocked me out and while under water my leg rope snapped. I surfaced to see my ski continue towards land. I knew straight away it was over a kilometer swim with paddle (against tide). I was a bit nervous, so decided I needed more time so pulled the RESTUBE. It inflated in milliseconds. I was able to float around like I was at a resort pool, then swim while it dragged behind me and then gather it again and float. I am 100% converted it was more useful than a jacket in this situation. Do you and your family a favour don't under estimate safety, get yourself a RESTUBE!
THANK YOU RESTUBE! (you made a big difference in outcomes).
Great for boating and fishing and a simple solution to a real problem! Unlike my PFD, I wear the Restube 100% of the time when I’m on the boat. The Restube does not get hot or in the way of fishing and I forget I’m even wearing it. It’s obviously preferable to wear a proper PFD at all times but I do find them annoying to wear because of how bulky, and Murphy's Law predicts something will happen when you’re not wearing a PFD, so Restube is a great backup. It’s also great if you want to jump in for a quick swim/snorkel as it still allows you to dive underwater.
Love my Restube!! It makes me feel safer. My husband and I are in our 60s and paddle our surf ski in the ocean 3-4 times a week. It can be a little unnerving in the open ocean, and we have witnessed and experienced a few serious or near-serious incidents, so safety is very important to us. The best thing about the Restube is that I don't feel I'm wearing it in my ocean ski but it’s there as an extra tool to keep us afloat or attract attention in the event of an emergency. We will often wear a PFD with the Restube as a backup as it can be blown up and passed to someone in trouble or used to wave for attention if we happen to lose our ski… We’ll wear just the Restube on calmer days when we're paddling close to shore.
As a freediver this product is a potential lifesaver. Simple but so effective! I had a spotter lose me in the water for an hour once and ever since then I've stepped my safety game up. I like that the Restube doesn't get in the way of what I'm doing at all and it still allows me to dive as deep as I want to. I was sent spare cartridges so inflated it just to test. It inflates super quickly and easily keeps me afloat. I like that I can also be used it to wave someone down if they can't see me.
