Additional Information

The youngest ones in the family can safely enjoy the water in a Stearns® Heads-Up® Youth Vest. It's specially fitted for kids 50-90 lbs., with an extra contoured float above the neck—like a pillow—to encourage face-up flotation. A rescue handle allows adults to easily move the child from the water or the boat. Bright, reflective material makes quick work of spotting the child, and two adjustable chest straps and a Hydroprene™-material-covered crotch strap ensure a tight fit at the pool, beach or lake. Durable polyester and nylon construction and PE flotation foam, along with 1-in.-wide webbed straps, will allow you to use the US Coast Guard-approved Type II vest season after season.

Heads-Up® Youth Vest is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performed well beyond expectations It's getting harder and harder to find life jackets that still have the flotation pillow and most importantly, the crotch strap on sizes beyond child. This life jacket is great. Being a Type-II, it is extremely comfortable and the size could allow a small adult to wear it with plenty of length still left on the straps. No complaints while wearing it. It's comfortable enough that it disappears while swimming. Although I did notice a thread came loose from inside where the drain holes are, I believe if you take good care of the vest, it should last many seasons. I hope Stearns will continue to make this life jacket for many more years, but maybe with new colors or graphics. Thanks Stearns for still providing a great affordable life jacket with safety features normally overlooked by other manufacturers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for our needs. We have a paraplegic, developmentally disabled, daughter (34) who suffers from cerebral palsy. The design of this vest allows us to take her to the local pool. The generous flotation material around the head keeps her head above water and the crotch strap keeps her from sliding out. A favorite for her is to lay on her back while we tow her by the head strap. No other design we looked at accomplished all this. Going to the pool is now a family activity.
