TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE UNTIL 4-15-14
To fully free your body of any cumbersome floatation devices, try the Water Gear Water Cell Flotation Collar. It allows water exercisers to get the most out of full body movements when fully submerged.
Full Body Suspension
Thanks to the deviceís Water Cell foam, the Water Gear Flotation Collar is able to suspend the entire bodyís weight, up to 220 pounds. While other flotation devices are required to strap around the waist or arms, the Water Gear float frees up your hands, feet and core for complete range of motion. While other neck-centered flotation devices come close, they canít quite achieve the same buoyant and durable qualities as the Water Gearís Water Cell foam. Take the Hydro-Fit Wet Vest Collar, for example. It actually doesnít rely on foam to float. The Hydro-Fit uses either a pellet-filled or inflatable float to keep the user above water. But, even without the Water Cell foam, it comfortably supports the head and neck in both vertical and horizontal positions.
For Relaxing or Working Out
Because the Water Cell foam is able to support your entire bodyís weight, the Flotation Collar can be used for both floating and for aqua aerobics routines. Youíll love the way the soft material comforts your head and easily suspends your feet. Itís a great way to relax in the pool, especially if youíre in the process of rehabilitating injuries. And itís easy to use the collar as an exercise companion as well. In the deep end of the pool, youíll be able to keep your head easily above water so that you can fully focus on the strengthening and cardio vascular exercises at hand. Once youíre done using the product, either after a calm float or heart pounding class, store the collar in a well-ventilated mesh bag. The AquaJogger Mesh Bag measures 24Ēx24Ē and comes with a shoulder strap and drawstring for easy transportation. Itís mesh design will help dry all your water workout gear and ensure that the Water Cell Collar lasts as long as possible.
Comfortable to Wear
The Water Cell Collar fits around the neck and is fully adjustable. The inside circumference measures 12Ē and is able to adapt to a wide variety of neck sizes. A comfortable and well-placed Nylon strap ensures that the collar stays put, no matter how relaxing or rigorous your time in the water might be. Its adjustable quality makes it a similar fit to the Kiefer Adjustable Adult Flotation Neck Collar. The Kiefer collarís Nylon zippered collar enables the user to adjust the amount of floatation, as well as fit, while in the water. And its junior version, the Kiefer Adjustable Pediatric Swim Collar, is perfect for helping kids or smaller framed adults stay afloat from the neck up.
The AquaGear Opinion
Swimmers in the AquaGear test pool were excited that the Water Gear product would give them a chance to relax, as opposed to other competition style swim gear. Testers found that the Flotation Collar was tight-fitting and secure, and could be easily adjusted as needed. They also found it extremely easy to just lay back and relax the entire body. The head is always comfortable held above the water and the foamís quality coating helped keep the collar free from the damaging effects of chlorine.
The Bottom Line
The versatile Water Gear Water Cell Flotation Collar is perfect for most any water-based exercise routine.
