What We like

COMPACT WITH ADJUSTABLE COMFORT- One size DOES NOT fit all. We designed the vest to be the most comfortable & compact inflatable life vest on the market. The single sided entry design allows you to quickly take the vest on or off. Our snorkel vest is available in 4 different sizes to provide the wearer with the ultimate fit. We designed our vest to tighten snugly around your waist to avoid the vest riding up rather than using an annoying crotch strap.

Product Features

  • SAFETY WITHOUT SACRIFICING STYLE- Our snorkel vest is constructed from durable premium materials with your safety in mind. Other inflatable life vests on the market are uncomfortable and definitely not stylish. With our vest you can be safe and look great at the same time. Our snorkel vest is a flotation aid that is perfect for any leisure water activity including snorkeling, swimming, paddle-boarding and other low impact water sports.
  • STABLE AND BALANCED - The Wildhorn snorkel vest is designed to keep you upright and stable anytime youre in the water, and balanced for activities like snorkeling and swimming. This means you wont have to fight to stay in the position you want, whether you are actively snorkeling or resting in the water.
  • PROPER USE- The Wildhorn vest is not certified as a life jacket or life preserver and is designed for leisure surface snorkeling and other low impact water sports. Use only if you know how to swim and have obtained instruction on proper use. Prior to each use, test to make sure the vest is inflated properly. Also follow the buddy rule; never swim alone.
  • SIMPLE & FAST INFLATION & DEFLATION - Inflate or deflate the snorkeling vest in seconds! The secure lock valve is easy to open and close, fast to inflate, and secure while youre active. Its ergonomic position allows you to adjust buoyancy on the fly. If you want less buoyancy simple unlock the valve and press down to let air out. Perfect if you want to dive to get a closer look at the marine life. When you are back on the surface you can inflate the vest in seconds to your desired level.
