How Restube works
Very high wearing comfort due to the option of vertical or horizontal mounting at the belt. Active swimmers wear Restube for example vertical attached in the back. The trigger grip is looking downwards to easily be reachable. To have an even more stable positioning for long distance swimmers, just push the positioning bar into the "Active belt".
More and more brands make their products RESTUBE READY. With this feature you can connect your Restube directly to your favorite swimming trunks or wetsuit. Find an overview of how it works and the first partnering brands here.
