Kids Life Jackets
With parents among our crew, we have even more of an emphasis on keeping children safe on the water, which is why we only stock kids life jackets that we’d happily let our own children wear while out on the boat.
With child life jackets from industry leading brands including Crewsaver, Seago and Spinlock, you can rest assured that kids are subject to just as much attention towards safety as adults, with all the top life jacket brands offering a children’s alternative.
Our life jacket for kids are available in various designs, depending on whether your child wants to look like a professional sailor, or would rather just be wearing something bright and colourful that keeps them highly visible too. All of these life jackets are fully adjustable, ensuring your children feel comfortable and confident while out on the water.
Safety is paramount, especially when it comes to children, where the shock of ending up in the water can be even more dangerous. It’s therefore vital that a kids life jacket keeps a child’s head well above water as effectively as possible.
All of our life jackets for children are designed to the most up-to-date ISO safety standards, with many of the life jackets also including a light, whistle, and various other safety features which are found on an adult life jacket.
What kids life jacket should I buy?
You'll notice that the products in this category have one major difference between them - some (like Marinepool's ISO Freedom Foam 100N Life Jacket) appear more like buoyancy aids, whilst others, such as Spinlock Cento Junior Automatic Life Jacket) look like adult life jackets. Baby life jackets are foam life jackets primarily designed for young children or those that are not confident swimmers and are calculated by weight.
In comparison, junior life jackets have the same appearance as adult life jackets and are typically suitable for children when they reach the age of 10-11, as at this age the child should have the awareness to pull the manual backup toggle in the extremely rare case that the life jacket fails to inflate. Junior life jackets are designed for children between 20-50kg, so after your child exceeds 50kg, it may be worth moving up to an adult life jacket.
