It's that time of the year when you're back in the water.  If like me, you can get a bit nervous when you go too far out of your depth or if you're working hard to built up your distance and want a safety blanket then you should consider Restube.

For those of you unfamiliar with Restubes they are an inflatable device that you wear (deflated) in a pouch around your waist. They come with Co2 cartridges and if you get in trouble you pull the cord and inflate the tube (see video). You then swim the buoy back to shore, deflate the buoy, pack it up and replace the Co2 cartridge with a fresh one. A two pack of spare Co2 cartridges cost €8.99.


Today I'm introducing you to the the Restube Swim which is the newest and most advanced product in the range but you can check out the full range of Restubes here (there are cheaper options!)

Restube Swim is the lightest Restube in the range coming in at just 210grams. 

One of the issues with previous iterations of Restube was that they tended to move around during longer swims. The new Restube Swim comes with a removable RESTUBE active stick. With the active stick it is easier to position the Restube and prevents it from shifting during long distance swims.

Restube Swim also won the prestigious ISPO Gold Award. Here's what they had to say about it:

"RESTUBE is the airbag of watersports. Pull the trigger and RESTUBE inflates within seconds. The “RESTUBE swim” version is the most compact version ever designed, matching highest durability and quality standards with less drag and great comfort. Specifically made for all swimmers. Whether you're training for the next Ironman or just having a good time at the lake. You will feel more freedom and have an even better time around the water.

Jury statement: The logical evolution of the Restube – versatile, space-saving, and easy to use, to name just a few of its benefits"

If you're interested in finding out more about Restubes pop into the store. Our staff have tried them out themselves so can give you lots of tips. The Restube Swim costs €85 and the Restube Classic is €59.95.  They're available to buy here:
