5 Safety Products For Open Water Swimming

Open water swimming is a fascinating water activity, but it often comes with a lot of challenges. You often must contend with cold water, waves, water visibility, currents, sandbars, drop offs, undertows, underwater obstacles, and even sharks and motor crafts.

The first step to prevention is being aware of and identifying the risks associated with Open Water swimming. Once risk factors associated with it have been identified, the next step is to control those which can be controlled. That’s why it is preferable to put into practice as many safety/security measures as possible.

It may be possible to control certain risk factors by ensuring that you have the right equipment, and that the equipment is in excellent condition. Below you will find a list of products which we think can help make it a safe and extraordinary water visibility experience.

#1 Adventure Lights Guardian™ Expedition

Available in five output colors: Blue, Green, Red, White and Yellow.

The Guardian™ Expedition LED Signal and Safety Light is a small, lightweight and fully waterproof, impact resistant and omnidirectional signal light that can easily attach to the swimmer’s goggle strap or through the garment tag on the back of a swimsuit or swimsuit straps (for women). Thanks to patented Reverse Polarity Program Switching™ technology, the function of the light can be changed between flashing and steady on modes by simply flipping the battery over.

The Guardian™ can be seen from up to 5 kilometers away, is waterproof to a depth of 350 feet (100m) and is equipped with a replaceable battery with a life of over 240 hours to keep yourself seen even on the foggiest swims.

Whatever the adventure, Adventure Lights can help you return home safe.

“These are lighter and more comfortable than the light sticks. The cap one is tiny, weighs nothing and is trouble free.”
- Ned Denison

#2 ISHOF SaferSwimmer Float

The ISHOF SaferSwimmer Float is specifically designed to provide a safety aide for open water swimmers, serving three important functions without hindering performance or hindering your stroke. When considering personal safety and peace of mind for you and those who care about you consider the following advantages of this device: It makes you visible to boaters, jet skis, kite boarders or other potential human hazards while you are swimming; It can be used as a flotation device when you need it in the case of cramps, dizziness or injury and it can also be used to rescue others; It can also keep your “stuff” safe while you’re swimming or allows you to take along your “stuff” on one-way swims across rivers or lakes.

#3 Finis Swimmer’s Snorkel

Finis Swimmer’s Snorkel created and patented the first ever center-mount snorkel designed specifically for swimmers. The Original Swimmer’s Snorkel allows swimmers to focus on stroke technique without the interruption of turning your head to breathe. By eliminating the need to breathe, swimmers can relax in the water, maintain body alignment and improve stroke efficiency. The one-way purge valve allows water to flow out of the snorkel without entering the mouthpiece. Accommodates a full range of motion for butterfly, breaststroke and freestyle.

#4 Sharkbanz Shark Repellent Bracelet

Sharkbanz Shark Repellent Bracelet is the result of long term, ongoing scientific studies and testing. Sharkbanz utilize powerful permanent magnets to create an effective shark deterrent that’s always on and requires no batteries or charging. When sharks approach Sharkbanz, they detect the device’s strong electromagnetic field, which provides a sudden sensation that is thousands of times stronger than the signal produced by anything in a shark’s normal food chain. Consequently, sharks are deterred away from Sharkbanz. This cause-and-effect is analogous to having a bright light suddenly shined in your eyes in a dark room. You would not be hurt, but you would want to turn away.

#5 Hi-Vis Warmwear Cap

The Hi-Vis Warmwear Cap features a bright color that provides you with extremely high visibility, helping you stand out and be spotted more easily in all water conditions. Meanwhile, PU coated elastic polyester construction retains your body heat for added warmth and protection.

The Guardian™ Dog Signal and Safety LED Light literally survived a snow blower, and an entire winter!

“One day while my dog played in the snow, she dislodged a blinking Guardian from her collar. With the standard utility clip attached to the light, the light dropped into the snow. Losing track of it, I had assumed it was lost forever. Three (3) months later, I spotted it several feet into the woods, STILL BLINKING! It had survived the winter. The clip, however, was shattered from passing through the snowblower.“ – Kelly

Cycling is a very eco-friendly, forward thinking, and economical way of getting around the city. Unless the user is a competitive cyclist with hundreds of dollars in equipment, then they are usually like the rest of us – just want to get around town in our awesome street clothes. Nevertheless, we should always do it safely.

Bicycle specific lights, such as Guardian Trident™ LED Bicycle Light, are wonderful investments. The LED light connects to the bicycle, providing a bright, hands-free, triple function and omnidirectional source of light. It is the premium model of our portable beacons. It can easily be changed between three functions: 120 BPM Flashing mode, a steady on mode, a warning strobe by simply turning the bezel. The included mount can be attached to any pole up to 1.5” (3.8 cm) in diameter, allowing cyclists to attach it to their seat, post or handlebars. It also comes with a detachable clip that can be used to secure the Guardian Trident™ Bike Light to wheel spokes, backpacks, or jackets. Available in white output as a front light or red output as a taillight, the LED light is visible from 3 miles (5 Kms) away.
