A swimming vest can help make sure you’re seen

Learn about swimming vests which some ocean swimming events may require you to wear for safety or sponsorship purposes.

Some ocean swim events may require the wearing of a lycra swimming vest for safety or sponsorship purposes.

Wearing a swim vest for the first time may feel restrictive, and you might feel a little more resistance when you swim.

Choosing and fitting a swimming vest

  • When choosing a vest size always ask for a size or two smaller than you would usually wear so it fits nice a snug.
  • If you still need to tighten it try gathering the loose material together and tying a knot in the back.
