water buddies life jacket designs for kids

Fun and comfortable designs for boys and girls make wearing jackets more fun for kids

When kids love the design on their life jacket there’s no question about putting it on (especially if its comfortable to wear too!) That’s why I love these new and innovative designs by Full Throttle called “Water Buddies”.

Water Buddies are designed for kids that weigh 30-50 lbs – which is the perfect age bracket (usually 3 and up) for character designs. They have really cute designs that appeal to both boys and girls, and of course they are Type III U.S. Coast Guard Approved.

What makes them really different is the back. Each Water Buddies vest has a uniquely-shaped foam back which brings the designs to life. With soothing fabrics and lightweight, durable flotation foam, the vests are extremely comfortable to promote all-day wear when in or around the water.

Water Buddies vests feature durable front-zippered closures with fully-adjustable waist belts in complementing colors. An adjustable leg strap helps prevent the vest from riding up. The Type-3 vests inspire water safety for children and peace of mind for parents.
