What's the difference between a life jacket and a buoyancy aid? A life jacket will turn an unconscious swimmer on their back to keep their mouth and nose out of the water. The downside is that a life jacket will only allow a conscious swimmer to swim on their back. A buoyancy aid will not turn the wearer face up, but its primary purpose is to support a conscious swimmer and make it easy for the wearer to swim in a normal and powerful fashion when required (like when you've really got to make that eddy!). They also provide some welcome body armour on certain trips!

We do stock a range of life jackets, which we recommend for use by people who may have trouble swimming. They are also suitable for sailing, and we have models for children and babies. They can be found in our Watersports section.

We also supply a range of River Buoyancy Aids and also Centre spec Buoyancy aids.

For those of you who would like to take your four legged friends out on the water, check out our range of Pet Buoyancy Aids.

Which Buoyancy Aid?

There are several styles of buoyancy aid on offer and they are suitable for either sea and touring use (the ones here) or river paddling. If you are looking for buoyancy aids for outdoor centre or group work we have a range of Centre Buoyancy Aids.

The Palm Symbiant Tour

The Delta Sportswear range is a good place to start looking at our entry level sea and touring buoyancy aids which features very popular models such as the Delta Traveller, while the Delta Ranger is ideal for kayak fishing.

Features to look at when choosing your salt water Buoyancy aid are pockets, adjustability and zips. Some, for example the Palm Symbiant Tour and Yak Vent, have an add on pocket that is designed to be easily attached, this will enable them to then take a hydration system.

The Yak Vent

If you're going fishing and you wish to blend in choose a neutral coloured option with plenty of pockets, like the Palm Taupo Tour in the olive/moss colour or the Delta Ranger. On the other hand, if you want to be clearly visible in the sea for safety reasons, look for more brightly coloured buoyancy aids such as the Yak Vent or the Palm Taupo Tour in red.

February Staff Newsletter

February was a busy month in the shop. As well as a number of reps coming to see us, and a number of visits to make, we also attended the Run, Walk, Crawl Brecon to Cardiff Ultra, and hosted a climbing shoe demo with Tenaya at local bouldering wall Spot Climbing. We still managed to get out, and members of Team Up and Under could be found in many parts of the UK; including in the Brecon Beacons, the Lakes, South Downs, Scotland, as well as further afield in Chamonix and George L still in Thailand.

January Staff Newsletter

January saw us starting to get into the swing of things again. A little snow saw many of the team in the Beacons, as well as further afield with trips to the Peak District, Cheddar Gorge and Pembrokeshire all squeezed in. New Years day allowed few of us to get out (even if the weather wasn't great in South Wales) but a number were in still Snowdonia and elsewhere where it was a little nicer.
