In 1914, Speedo was founded in Australia by Alexander MacRae, a 22-year-old Scottish immigrant who arrived in the country in 1910. The company began when MacRae Hosiery manufacturers, established by Alexander in 1914, extended the manufacture of underwear to swimwear and became MacRae Knitting Mills. A naming competition was held by the staff in 1928 and won by a Captain Parsonson, who coined the slogan, "Speed on in your Speedos." In 1929, the first swimsuits were in production and it didn't take long for Speedo to successfully establish itself. World War II caused the brand turn over 90% of its manufacturing to war production, providing the armed services with vital equipment such as mosquito nets. After the war, Speedo opened a new factory and was able to re-establish itself, due to increased demand for swimsuits. In 1951, Speedo Knitting Mills (Holdings) Ltd, was incorporated and became a publicly traded company on the Sydney Stock exchange.
Speedo hit the international stage in earnest, at the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, and a few years later the brand grew on a more global scale. Export sales to the USA began and an international division was set up to monitor trade in New Zealand, Japan and South Africa. The expansion of the brand continued, and in 1976, Speedo was appointed as the official swimwear for the 1976 Montreal Olympics, where 52 out of 54 countries wore their swimsuits.
Speedo continues to make its mark in the pool and on the beach today. Many world class athletes who wear Speedo include U.S. phenomenon Michael Phelps, legendary Australian swimmer Grant Hackett, world record holder Kosuke Kitajima from Japan, and Hollands Inge de Bruijn.

As I said, I've used flotation belts before, and found that they have a tendency to slip up, no matter now tightly they're cinched. The Speedo one-piece belt can be cinched tight and it stays in place, allowing me to use it for 20 minutes of workout without having to adjust it. In other words, it stays put!
I'm a bit surprised about those other reviews who stated they had trouble figuring out how to adjust the belt. Really? It comes out of the box with the strap threaded through the belt. The only "adjustment" is to tighten the strap, which works exactly like a seat belt on a plane. It should be tightened so that there is no way for the belt to move. If it's adjusted loosely, of course the belt would ride up and be uncomfortable. Pull the belt tight and you're all set!
As I discovered years ago when I used a flotation belt for marathon training, this is no sissy's workout. You can work up a sweat, even if you're in the water. It's a great, low-impact way to get your workout, or to supplement your daily run. Having used other flotation products before, I can tell you this belt beats the ones made from 3 or 4 pods. Those slip and are difficult to get to fit properly. They're just plain uncomfortable! The Speedo Aqua Fitness Jog Belt is a really good design, something I'd expect from Speedo. I'm grateful I have something of this quality to complete my rehab period before I hit the road again, and I feel pretty confident that I'm going to add it as a permanent part of my workout.
If you don't mind it riding up, then this is a great option!
