The swimming buoy provides you with better visibility in the water thanks to the yellow signal color. This makes it easy for other people, boats, and lifeguards to see you – an important safety aspect for any open water swimmer!
If you want to take a break while swimming – to rest, for instance, or if you get a cramp – you can also lay over the buoy to easily keep your head above the water. The buoy has a buoyancy of 125 N and is suitable for any body size.
You can store important things like a smartphone, keys, sunglasses, and even clothing and running shoes in the swimming buoy. A total of 12.5 l of volume is available in an area separated from the air chamber.
The READY interface can be used to add a cell phone pocket or a GoPro to the inflatable buoy so you can operate your smartphone even while swimming. This means you can track your distance as you swim, for instance, share your location, or access important messages without having to interrupt your training. With the GoPro attachment you can film yourself while swimming. RESTUBE READY add ons will be available in spring 2023!
The swimming buoy is equipped with a predetermined breaking point so that the buoy separates from the belt at a load of 15 kg. This is an important safety feature, for instance if the dragline becomes stuck on a rock while swimming in a river.
In contrast to most other swimming buoys, the swimming buoy by RESTUBE is manufactured to be PVC free. Only high-quality nylon TPU material is used in the construction. To eliminate the extraneous use of resources, we have also eliminated packaging and designed the swimming buoy so that it needs no additional outer packaging.
How the swim buoy by RESTUBE works
Pack your personal items
Pack everything that should stay dry in the waterproof compartment, for example energy bars and other provisions, clothes and shoes, keys and sunglasses.
Fold the end 3x
Wrap the lower end of the buoy 3 times on the marking lines.
Close the buoy
Now close the floating buoy with the clip closure.
Inflate the buoy with your mouth
Inflate the buoy with your mouth and close the mouth valve with the cap.
Buckle the belt
Buckle the belt around your waist and place the buoy so that the pull line of the buoy is centered on your back.
Enjoy more freedom & safety
Now enjoy your time in the water with more safety and freedom, knowing you have everything you need with you.
Unlike most other buoy manufacturers, we do not use PVC, a material that is problematic for nature and people, and use only high-quality NYLON / TPU in our products.
For the sake of the environment, we also do without elaborate product packaging. All important information is on a hangtag attached to the buoy.
The Restube floating buoy also has a predetermined breaking point that separates the buoy from the harness when the load exceeds 15 kg, which can be important in dangerous situations such as currents.
With the RESTUBE READY interface, the buoy can be supplemented with additional products. For example, a whistle or smartphone case (coming soon) can be attached to the READY patch.
Yes, the swim buoy by RESTUBE is designed to keep your personal items such as keys or smartphone dry. If you use the swim buoy on stretches where it could be damaged, for example by stones or rocks in the water, we recommend that you additionally pack all water-sensitive items in a waterproof bag.

Developed in coorporation with the BFU and SLRG
„The swimming buoy by RESTUBE provides buoyancy in critical situations. It causes barely any interference while swimming, makes you more visible, and is suited for many bodies of water. The buoy can be tested free of charge in Switzerland at many river and seaside resorts.“Christoph MüllerBFU
I gave this to my father who is an elderly swimmer by now. He likes it a lot for the security and the possibility to store and take wirh him valuable items while in water. Also my mother was very happy (since she started to worry a bit when he goes far into a lake). Then I bought one for myself, and since I am easily scared in deep water, it will give me so much freedom!
Ist ein nützliches Hilfsmittel beim Schwimmen. Einerseits kann ich Gegenstände sicher aufbewahren und vor Nässe schützen und andererseits kann ich sie beim Schwimmen mitnehmen.
hab gerade gekauft, erster Eindruck: passt alles und größer als ich dachte! +
werde ich beim Schnorcheln einsetzen - freue mich drauf
Generally the towfloats are rather bulky ans spacious even when unflated. This one is almost as thin as the classical resttube pack. The material of the boij appears to be the same as for the classic resttube. Which is nice and sturdy. I am locking forward for the action cam mount adapter. Currently I can not say how stable the float is with an action cam mounted. My current version we lead stabilaziers on the side.
