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 Jacket and a Captain Barnacles Konfidence Floatsuit.
The Kwazii-themed Original Konfidence 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.

Please note: some of the awards below have been received for The Original Konfidence Jacket generally, not necessarily specifically for the Octonauts Jacket.
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.
