Kids like the fun design of the Stearns Puddle Jumper life jacket, and you'll appreciate the security and confidence of high-quality construction and safety. The Puddle Jumper fits children weighing 30-50 pounds. It's made of woven polyester, so it's softer and less chafing than nylon life jackets. The Puddle Jumper fits comfortably over the child's chest, with arm pieces that offer excellent stability and free range of motion in the water. The Puddle Jumper is Coast Guard approved as a Type III personal flotation device (PFD).
Keep your youngster safe and mobile in the water with the Puddle Jumper Deluxe Life Jacket from Stearns. The Puddle Jumper's patent-pending design doubles as a swim aid and as a Coast Guard Approved Type III personal flotation device. Intended for small children weighing between 30 and 50 pounds, the Puddle Jumper keeps children's arms and chest afloat, allowing them to kick and paddle forwards on their stomach in a natural swimming motion--without face planting in the water. This design both keeps kids safer in the water and helps them develop their swimming skills with confidence. Built for comfort with kid sensibility in mind, the Puddle Jumper is made of soft, durable woven polyester that won't chafe, and comes in fun designs that little kids will want to wear. Easy to take on and off over swim clothes, the Puddle Jumper attaches securely in the back with an adjustable webbing strap.
About Type III Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs):
The US Coast Guard recommends Type III PFDS for use in calm, inland waters, or where there is a good chance for fast rescue. Type III PFDs are considered flotation aids, not life preservers and children should not be left unattended at any time while wearing a Type III PFD.
