Children's Lifejackets

As the puppies are growing fast, they'll both need larger lifejackets this season.

they need 100N foam jackets as at 6&7 rthey are not strong swimmers.

Should I stick with the Baltic 1240 in a larger size, or is there anything better out there?

BTW is anyone interested in 2 x Baltic 1240s - the child upto 30Kg size, 1 & 2 years old in good condition & never used in anger (although they've survived the odd ice cream attack!)

Practical Boat Owner magazine had a test 2-3 years of ago of some 20 childrens lifejackets. Buy a back issue perhaps?

Your old ones will make good money on e-bay this summer. So much, in fact, that I just keep buying new ones!

I could be, number one child is 5 and still fits her current jacket, but won't for long. So will need something sooner or later.

Good news is child number 2 will fits in hand me downs foryears
