AD – We were gifted our trip to Splash Landings at Alton Towers as part of our role as Konfidence Swimologist brand ambassadors. Konfidence also provided us with the Original Konfidence Swim Jackets that are mentioned in this post.

We are thrilled to be Konfidence Swimologist brand ambassadors this year. As part of our role, we will be reviewing their Original Konfidence Swim Jackets and other swimwear. We were sent to Splash Landings, Alton Tower’s water park, to really put the Konfidence products to the test.

Swimming With Konfidence At Splash Landings

Splash Landings in Alton Towers is not only a hotel within the park complex but also a fabulous water park. The water park itself is inside the hotel. But once inside you could be forgiven for thinking that you are in some exotic location. And it is surprising how vast the water park complex actually is. There is the main swimming area, a lazy river, a toddler pool, water slides and an outside pool area. Plenty of room to put the Konfidence products through their paces.

The main reason I love the Konfidence buoyancy aids and swimwear is that they give my children the assurance they need to enjoy being in the water. As neither of my children has had proper swimming lessons.

Yet, I believe that learning to swim is a vital life skill that children need to have. That is why we try to take the children swimming when we can.

Little Mister H is quite wary of the water and tends to cling on to one of us when swimming. Little Miss H, however, has the opposite problem and is overly confident in the water. She believes she can swim simply because she thinks she can. Therefore, I’m wary and on my guard when both my children are near the water.

Confidence In The Water With Konfidence

About Konfidence

Parents to five children, Andy and Caroline Regan created the Konfidence brand. Their three young sons weren’t comfortable in the water and so they looked for a good flotation device for their children. However, they didn’t want just armbands. They decided to create their own as they were unable to find what they were looking for. And this resulted in the production of the Original Konfidence Swim Jacket. The name Konfidence came out of the confidence this flotation device gave parents as well as the children who wore it.

Original Konfidence Children’s Swim Jacket

The brand name is so apt, as both my children have had so much more confidence in the water since wearing their Original Konfidence Children’s Swim Jackets. Little Mister H no longer clings on to me or his Daddy for dear life. Now he is actually able to enjoy his time splashing around in the water. And Little Miss H has started to make real strides with her swimming.

This is all thanks to the Original Konfidence Children’s Swim Jacket. The jacket is the number 1 best-selling neoprene swimming buoyancy aid across the UK and Europe for children aged 1 to 7. It costs £24.99 and is available in 3 sizes (18 months to 3 years; 4 to 5 years and 6 to 7 years) and a variety of designs. Little Miss H choose the gorgeous pink and navy ladybird design whereas Little Mister H decided on the cute Scoot the Clownfish jacket.

What We Love About The Original Konfidence Swim Jacket

Made from high-grade soft neoprene, the jacket provides a lateral and longitudinal stretch which makes for a snug and comfortable fit. Meaning that the swim jacket does not move independently of the wearer. Also, the Original Swim Jacket does not ride up in the water. It allows the wearer to keep their arms free. This helps them to learn to swim independently and to practise swimming strokes.

The swim jacket has 8 floats inside. To reduce buoyancy and encourage the swimmer’s development, it is possible to remove these floats 2 at a time. Therefore it is fully adjustable to your child’s skill level. And eventually, all the floats can be removed and your child can swim independently.

The jacket also contains soft lycra which minimises chafing and rubbing. This is brilliant for Little Mister H as he suffers from eczema and even a little irritation can cause an outbreak. It features a chunky zip which is perfect for little hands and also maximises security, so you don’t need to worry about the jacket falling off in the water.

The Original Swim Jacket offers 100% UVA protection when worn outdoors. And one of my favourite features is the high visibility yellow back which comes with all jackets. This meant that even when Splash Landings became really busy I was easily able to spot Little Miss and Little Mister H.

Our Verdict Of The Original Konfidence Swim Jacket

There is no doubt in my mind that the Original Konfidence Swim Jacket has increased my children’s comfort when swimming. Both Little Miss H and Little Mister H now love spending time in the water and frequently ask to go to the beach or swimming pool.

This jacket is a brilliant design. From the fact that the buoyancy aids can be removed 2 at a time as your child’s swimming ability improves. To the little details that make such a difference. For example, the non-chafing fabric, the chunky zip that even Little Mister H can handle, the UVA protection provided by the jacket and the yellow back that is highly visible.

    WOW how did I not know Alton Towers had this awesome water park!?! It looks amazing! We love the Konfidence, both my kids used their swimwear when they first started lessons as babies. its good that the jackets gave your kids that bit of reassurance and confidence around the water and I love that you can remove floats as and when you need so that the jackets can “grow” with your kids.

    This looks like so much fun. I never even knew that there was a water park at Alton towers. Those swim jackets look great, better than the arm bands my kids use.

    I used to go to aqua splash loads as a kid and this really reminds me of there. It’s nice to have that extra confidence when your kids are in the water x
