Rating: Snorkle vest
Reviewer: Judy Reabuck
My wife and I are retired and we love to get in the water every chance and trip we can. Recent dives included Maui, Akumal, Mexico and Key West. This vest has greatly increased our safety and confidence posture while in the water and we would highly encourage anyone of any age who snorkles to wear it.

Rating: Vest recommended!
Reviewer: Holly M.
first of all a few things about me: i like good equipment, i research to find the best of quality and cost (without skimping), i am in my 40s, in good shape but could loose a few ), and im a water baby. so.... i went to several dive shops and looked extensively online for a snorkeling vest. this vest is one of the best i was able to find in craftsmanship, material, and cost. the material is soft and very sturdy with durable stitching and sealing. the neck area is open and comfortable. i found the shape of the neck opening much more comfortable than other snorkeling vests ive worn. nothing rubbed by body or arms. the vest is light weight so if youre packing for a plane ride its all good. as far as the colors go. the day-glo yellow is great for visibility and the blue is a nice contrast. im a designer and photographer by nature and so youll have to take my word on the fact that the design and color just works well :) the strap is a strap and does what its supposed to do. someday someone will invent a great accessory for the purpose of holding a vest in place, but until then, this one is pretty good. with minimal adjustment the vest stays in place. i did not notice any scaffing, rubbing, or hot spots on either the vest or the strap. (by the way, the strap is long so it will fit everyone. cut yours to suit [cut with scissors burn end of new cut to seal fabric dip cut end in cold water to complete dont burn you or your house down!!!] leave at least 10 inches to drag (for adjustment and in case you eat doughnuts for a month and gain a little). do not loop the extra if at all possible loops can get caught on strange things of the sea). this vest should work on all body types and continue to be comfortable. what would make any snorkeling vest a 5 star to me is when you dont have to adjust it at all ... but that vest doesnt exist yet. also, this vest would have gotten 4.5 stars if it had a small mesh pocket with a drawstring (something to keep my mask spit and the awesome sharks tooth i found last week!!!)

Rating: If your boat says you need one, this is it!!
Reviewer: sherly l.  -  View all my reviews
If you have to wear one to comply with regualtions or if you need that extra support, this is the most comfortable. The material is so smooth I dont even need to wear a rash guard. You can inflate it just slightly and it doesnt hinder your snorkeling. Great!

Rating: Safety and Comfort While Snorkeling
Reviewer: Gary K.
It was going to be my daughters first experience with snorkeling. She swims, but was a little concerned about being in the ocean so I ordered a snorkeling vest. It worked great. It gave her that little bit of confidence she needed to relax while going into the ocean with snorkeling gear shed only tried in a hot tub. It kept her buoyant so that she didnt have to tread water or swim to stay afloat. The quality of the vest was excellant, and there were no leaks whatsoever. It made my daughters first snorkeling experience fun and safe. It also made my wife and I feel a lot better about any concerns we had about safety. On our second day of snorkeling, we were off a boat in much deeper water and the vest worked to help identify her in a crowd of folks in the water.

Rating: Very Functional
Reviewer: Joe Pearson  -  View all my reviews
We decided to get a flotation vest for safety when snorkeling in "less-familiar" waters. After un-nerving experiences in rough waters and swift currents, the vests have proven to be very easy to use and have provided the level of comfort we we seeking. They stay out of the way in use and are easily accessed when needed. Two puffs of air and they are inflated so we can relax on the surface. A twist of the valve and a squeeze and were diving again. The high visibility colors and the storm whistle round out this vest as a the perfect safety gear. I highly recommend these vests.

Questions and Answers for Innovative Deluxe Snorkel Vest with Crotch Strap And Whistle:


  • Duane:

    This vest has Standard plastic inflator valve how does it work, do you pull on it or do you screw it down.I am concerned that in a stress full situation a screw down type might be hard to do what kind valve is this and what do you recomend?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Duane, this is a very easy valve to use. Yes the valve does screw and unscrew to deflate the vest. The mouth piece does depress so when you want to blow it up make sure the valve is screwed down then all you have to do is depress the mouth piece and blow into it to inflate it. When you want to deflate the vest just unscrew the valve and that will let the air out. If you would like to place an order or have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • cathy:

    would I get the adult one if the child is 98 lbs? Shes also 5 feet tall.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Kids/Junior will be the correct size.

  • Mike:

    I kind of short and a "bit" heavy. 56" and 210 lbs. 38 inch waist. Should I get the adult or adult XL vest?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Mike, yes you would be the size XLarge. If you have any other questions or would like to place an order please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.

  • jan:

    It looks like there are two different "shapes" of this...one that has a more oval neck opening and one with a more square opening. Are they the same thing, or is it more square for the small/large and more oval for the xl? Which "shape" is more comfortable w/ less rubbing/chafing?

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The vests are almost identical only larger or smaller depending on the size you choose.

  • Kim:

    Hi, Im an adult female. Im 5ft tall and 103lbs. What size should I get? Thanks

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Yes that would be correct.

  • Larry:

    I am considering purchasing an Innovative Deluxe Snorkel Vest with crouch strap. I weigh 191 lbs and am wondering do I get a larger or extra large since I am so close to 200 lbs limit of the large. If I were to get an extra large what would be the down side, given I do not weigh over 200 lbs. I look forward to you advice. LJL

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Larry, you need the size Adult large. If you go up a size in this it will ride up on you with the added space of the size adult XL.

  • mike:

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

  • MIKE:

    Derek , please click the tab that says : **more about this product** it says "Each style is now available with standard plastic inflator valve or optional metal inflator valve.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Mike, the only version we carry right now is the plastic version of this vest. If you would like to order the metal version this is something that we would have to special order for you.

  • sadeth:

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Sadeth, this would not replace a life preserver. This is designed to help you float face down at the surface so you can swim around and look at the fish.
