Asked for by name, the original SwimWays Swim Sweater helps kids explore the water with confidence! Our swim vest helps your child achieve two important pre-swimming positions: floating upright and leaning forward to paddle.

The stable, circular design rides high on your child's chest for maximum stability, and the heavy-duty rubber inner tube has a no-leak valve (the same kind on a bicycle tire) for security. Fabric cover is soft and colorful, and provides 50+ UPF sun protection.

Ages: 2-4 years

Made in China

Free shipping in the U.S. on orders $79+

Product Instructions

  1. Inflate using bicycle or hand pump. Tube should be firm but flexible. Never inflate while on the child.
  2. Have your child step into the center of the Swim Sweater.
  3. Carefully lift the Swim Sweater up to your child's shoulders and slip on sleeves, one arm at a time.

This is the best pool item I could have for my 18 month old son! It gives him the freedom and confidence to swim without us having to hold onto him constantly. He swims back and forth, is able to get in and out of the pool, and even jump in. We absolutely love it and highly recommend it!!!

We have used this type of product in the past, but were suprised this version could not be inflated with the bicycle pump - you must take it to a gas station with a non-threading air inflator. When I first called for customer service, they told me to squeeze the valve and blow, but of course that will not work with a center-valve plunger (bicycle-tire-type). So if you see the instructions to use a bike-pump, disregard - you need a non-threading air pump source. Otherwise, seems great.

I grew up with my brothers using this and have always wanted them for my girls. My mom found them at a store near her and brought them to FL for vacation and uses them whenever my girls visit with her and they go swimming. I used to dread swimming with them but finally found the place I can purchase this item so I can let them have more freedom around the pool. My Mom is still paranoid having them run around and jumping in (ages 6 and 3) but I know that when grandma's not around, the grandchildren can play with this. Helpful tips, it does require a bike inflater to blow it up. It is tight so it's best to blow it up all the way then let the air out so that it fits to your child. Gotta put it on like pants then put shirt over arms and shoulders. It's very tight and difficult for (my) children to slip out the bottom even if they tried. Have fun!
