Editors Pick – Restube Ultralite – Inflatable Life Jacket & Swim Tube
When I’m not on my computer talking about cool kit and getting outdoors I love to get into the water with friends and family, explore around the coast and generally have a great time. There’s been the odd occasion where I’ve got into trouble, nothing major but I’ve had plenty of scares and so this product is something I can relate to, it’s practical and easy to use and I think that with all the products we pick out they’re products that we at Outdoor Revival would use and I think I would use this one.

About this project
10 years ago I nearly drowned kite surfing. It took me almost an hour to get to shore through powerful waves and a strong riptide.There was nothing on the market that could help me in this situation without limiting my activity. So we built up a team in 2012 and we created the first wearable inflatable flotation tube: Restube. Fast forward to today, we’ve saved at least 25 lives with our system. Now, we have engineered the most compact inflatable “life jacket” and the smallest ”
Now, we have engineered the most compact inflatable “life jacket” and the smallest “Restube swim tube” ever. These are illuminated for improved visibility at night and engineered in Germany with incredible attention to quality and safety.
Our Kickstarter is aimed at helping to finish certification and ramp up production for both product innovations. Offering the fully featured, deluxe versions as rewards to our backers.
These are the two most advanced, lightweight flotation technologies ever made. The “Ultralite Swim Tube” is based on our proven Restube design but with sleeker, lighter weight material and full on LED illumination.
The “Ultralite Life Jacket” is the smallest of its kind and our first one designed for US coast-guard certificiation. The jacket will also match European standards for buoyancy aids for activities close to the shore.
Sonni Hönscheid supports us to improve Restube since years. She is three times Molokai 2 Oahu Chamionship winner and knows exactly about water safety issues and the needed comfort for paddling. We designed our new “Ultralite Life Jacket” especially for stand-up paddleboarders (SUP).
Also boaters, anglers or paddlers love the very compact system which is perfect for water activities that require a US coast guard approved life preserver Type 5 with Type 3 performance. It also matches European ISO 12402-5 standard.
It’s worth going to the Restube Kickstarter page for more information and the chance to pledge money towards this project (and get the Restube)
