Our multi award winning, British Designed, Original Konfidence Jacket was originally created with our own kids in mind more than 20 years ago to help them to learn to swim, practice swimming or just have fun

The Konfidence Swim Jacket comes recommended by Starfish Aquatics Institute - US and International curriculum and awarding body.

Alongside the Starfish Aquatics Institute recommendation the most recent guidelines from Swim Wales are for the use of fixed/worn buoyancy aids. All Konfidence jackets and floatsuits are Class B: fixed/worn by the swimmer and provide buoyancy whilst the wearer is learning to swim and aids the practising of essential swimming techniques. Particularly useful in pools with varying depths and with social distancing being observed by the teacher.

With built-in buoyancy, from its 8 simple to remove soft foam floats, the Konfidence Jacket is designed to maintain the correct swimming position whilst providing the confidence your child needs to enjoy playing in water, all the time gaining the important and vital lifelong skills in learning to swim.

We are delighted to say our products ar used by swimming teachers and swim schools all over the world. The Original Konfidence Jacket is our number one selling neoprene swimming buoyancy aid for children across the UK and Europe.

Made from high grade 3mm thick neoprene providing 100 % UV protection on covered areas, the Original Konfidence Jacket allows your child to have fun swimming in cold water longer or enjoy time in the sun. Full easy to read instructions are included.

It is lightweight and easy to pack, making it ideal for holidays to the beach or trips to the pool. The Original Konfidence Jacket also comes with a chunky YKK self-locking zip with a Velcro zip retainer, for your peace of mind, whilst the child is in water.

The highly visible bright yellow back is the trademark of Konfidence, allowing your child to be spotted easily from a distance. Great for those busy beaches and as all parents know the longer you can spend in the water the more fun everyone has.

Easy to use and keep clean, just simply rinse in cold water as soon as possible, after use in chlorine or seawater and leave to dry naturally, away from direct sunlight. This increases the longevity of the jacket which ensures colours remain vibrant. Do not tumble dry/iron.

Always supervise children in water!

Sizing Guides

Open tab

When it comes to buying baby swimwear and swimming aids for children and adults, getting the right size product is critical – too small and the product will be uncomfortable, restrictive or even possibly unsafe; too large and the product will likely slip off and offer none of the benefits for which it was intended.

In order to help you ascertain which size product you should buy for your little one or yourself, we have produced a number of size guides offering guidelines as to the recommended size of product to be bought based on characteristics such as weight, chest size, arm length and head circumference. For some products, we have included dimensions and measurements to make it even more clear.

Most of our size guides are named according to age groups (for example, "4 to 5 years" or "18 months to 3 years"). However, it is important to remember that all children grow at different rates, so these age groups are merely guidelines. What is more important to look at are the individual measurements listed in tandem with the age groups, such as chest size and weight. This will give you a much better idea as to what size to purchase.
