This new safety buoy provides support while swimming, visibility and storage, So now you have a comfortable and safe way to carry your hydration with you.
The Hydration Bladder Safety Buoy has been designed to fit your Camelback hydration bladder. This safety buoys helps keep you hydrated throughout your swims or open water training sessions, thanks to the exterior pocket and an opening for the tube.
Thanks to the clever Orca design, the exterior pocket is suitable for holding most water bottles so you don’t have to use this safety buoy with a bladder. The pocket is a generous size so it could also hold energy gels or perhaps a small waterproof camera for those open water buoy shots?
This safety buoy has a watertight internal storage compartment which is handy for storing those personal items. So you don’t have to worry about leaving valuables on the beach, for instance car keys, mobile phone or wallet etc will fit comfortably inside the watertight storage.
The high-visibility orange colour will keep you visible to others in the open water. It’s important to make yourself visible to other water users and lifeguards. The buoy can also be used to hold for a short rest during longer swims.
Thanks to its adjustable waist strap, you can swim in open water without inhibiting your stroke performance.
Many open water swimming events require you to swim with a tow-float and this hydration safety buoy meets that requirement. Plus, you have the added convenience of having your feeding bottle or bladder with you.
