We all know that we should wear life vests when swimming or playing in open water, but that doesn’t mean we always do. The Swim Guard by Steffen Reiter makes it easy to wear a life vest every time with this sleek design that stays put until it’s deployed.

Unlike bulky life vests, the Swim Guard is designed to lay close to the body. It sits on the upper torso so as not to interfere with the range of motion around the midsection. A gas cartridge provides the power for the inflating mechanism; when it’s deployed, a GPS signal is sent to the nearest rescue center so that you can be located quickly.
