Product Description


Fans of the popular CBeebies show Octonauts can now pretend to be their favourite character while learning to swim! Based on our award-winning designs, our Octonauts-branded swimwear features two of the show's most popular characters – a Lieutenant Kwazii Original Konfidence Swim Jacket and a Captain Barnacles Konfidence Floatsuit.

The Kwazii-themed Original Konfidence Swim Jacket is bright orange to match the popular feline Octonauts character and uses our world-renowned removable eight-float system, which allows buoyancy to be tailored to the wearer's needs and ability. The jacket, which has blue lieutenant stripes on the shoulders and the chest and an Octonauts zip pull, also features our signature bright yellow back, which provides high visibility for parents at the pool or on the beach. It also offers 100% sun protection on all covered areas.

Super productReview by Jimmy.$
Came quickly and was in the sale so a bargain. It aids your child float, the key word is 'aids' - your child will not simply float without doing anything else. However, it is excellent and gives your child that extra confidence in the water. My only issue is that it takes forever to dry out. We went swimming on a Saturday and it has been 5 days however the vests are still not 100% dry!! Really do not know what to do as we cannot leave them like this every time we go swimming. This is the only reason I have given the product 4 stars instead of 5. (Posted on 23/08/2017)

Outstanding products as always Review by Jo
This product has the quality that I have come to expect from Konfidence and our little man loves the bright colours and Kwazi been on his jacket.
We have used Konfidence products since our oldest son was a ting baby and have never been disappointed. (Posted on 17/04/2017)
Perfect next stepReview by Heather
My daughter (14kg, 100cm tall) is nearly 4 but we got the 18m-3yr size so it would be a snug fit and it's a perfect fit with the A floats removed. She was swimming confidently with armbands but we were struggling with the next step despite lessons. This has really helped her and we will gradually remove more floats. The jacket also is not massive on my 8 month old son with all the floats in so definitely will be for him to use when she has done with it... although I think she may use it for the next year as we gradually remove floats as she grows I think it will still fit.

Care Instructions

The Original Konfidence Jacket should be washed in cold clean water and hung to dry in the shade. Do not tumble dry and do not iron. If the jacket is used in the swimming pool or sea, chlorine and seawater can have a bleaching effect on the colours and damage Lycra threads, so to avoid degradation please rinse out in clean water as soon as possible. Please do not leave in a warm or hot car without rinsing first, as this can increase the chance of chlorine damage.


The major components we use are chunky self-locking YKK zips, nylon, polyester, 2.5 mm neoprene and Lycra, plus layered EPE foam floats.


We use flatlock seams (the same as those used on good quality wetsuits) on the shell to eliminate uncomfortable and unsightly ridged seams.


The Original Konfidence Jacket is tested to EN13138-1 (2008), the current standard for class B buoyant aids to swimming. This includes materials and buoyancy tests to ensure that it is well made, robust and fit for purpose. It has also been tested and complies with AS1900 (Australia) and SA SANS53138-2 (South Africa). In addition, we have tested the outer material for its UV protection qualities.
