    Fit is extremely small

      Comments about SPEEDO Begin to Swim Float Coach:

      This looks to be a great product, but the fit is unbelievably small. My son was approximately 36 lbs last summer and I was excited to use this type of product as it was recommended by a swim coach. We ripped off the tags and hurriedly try to put it on our child who was excited about going swimming. We wrestled with the straps trying to get it on him thinking it was our issue, but realized after wrestling on and off (even harder than getting it on) that this has been poorly designed. It is rated up to 66lbs, but there is no way that I can see anyone getting close to this. I'm very disappointed and I have been on the phone waiting to speak to a rep at Speedo for a combined total of 17 minutes (once at 5 minutes and now at 12 min and counting). Not sure what's going on. Speedo has always seemed to be a strong brand. I would only recommend this product if your child is very, very small and expect to get only one summer's use.

      Comments about SPEEDO Begin to Swim Float Coach:

      I was somewhat happy with this product. It was tricky to get on and off, but my daughter is small so it was doable. The bottom between the legs strap, however, was very uncomfortable for her and she kept complaining about it. I finally unhooked it but then the vest kind of floated up into her chin. I agree there should be better ways to adjust the straps ad there should be latches on the sides too.

        It said up to 5 years old and 60+ pounds. My daughter is 3 and it was very difficult to get it on her due to the sides not adjusting. She got stuck in it and it took awhile to get her out. It looks great, but we can't use it.

        Takes some work to work

        Comments about SPEEDO Begin to Swim Float Coach:

        Agree with previous comments adding that I didn't know front from back. Had to guess & guessed wrong, so changing it around when wet was a bear. Second time used we put it on dry & my 3 yr. old grandson fussed but when he kept his hands straight up it went on fine. I figured out that the bottom strap cover can easily be turned around on the strap to provide the right cushioning. Once fitted and secured I was pretty happy but why not put a small strap at top of back (or across the back) so the adult can grab it when assisting the child. think Speedo can design a much better product & I don't think it should cost much more!

        Looks better than it performs

        By Annoyed Dad

        from NJ

        About Me Athletic

        Pros

        • Attractive Design
        • Good Mobility

        Cons

        • Very difficult to put on

        • Casual Swimming

        Comments about SPEEDO Begin to Swim Float Coach:

        This seemed like a good choice as it would provide great mobility and superior comfort over vest style floatation. In reality it is very difficult to get on. If speedo would have put a buckle on one side this would be a much better product. I struggle to get it on my 2yr old.

            Can't get this product over my 3 year old grandson's head. It needs buckles not elastic on the sides to be usable.

            Great vest with one huge drawback

                Comments about SPEEDO Begin to Swim Float Coach:

                My 4 yr old dtr has used this vest for 2 days. It holds her up welll while still giving her the freedom to be upright, on her back or on her front. She is easily able to flip around herself equally in all directions. The drawback is the leg strap. She asks to take it off because it hurts her bum. The buoyancy of the front and back sections force the strap up and the flimsy 'protector' does nothing to keep the strap from embedding into her bum. I am currently shopping for a more user friendly floatation vest for her.
