The Eco15 Drybag features a waterproof compartment which is separate to the air chamber. This means the swimmer can take their essential items such as keys or spare goggles with them whilst in the water.
Ultralight and Bright
The Eco15 is ultralight yet more durable than PVC, it’s bright orange to increase the visibility and safety of the swimmer in the water.
All Puffin floats are designed with Optimised Streamlining which means the float’s shape, valve position, tow attachment point and direction of tow are all designed to reduce drag. The Eco15 is ultralightweight and packable.
The drybag floats behind the swimmer and does not interfere with the swimmers’ stroke.
The Eco15 Drybag is easy to use, the float has a short adjustable leash attached to it, this leash then simply threads onto the waist belt. The buckle on the waist belt is chunky to make it easier to operate with cold fingers.
Typically Swim Tow Floats have been made with PVC applied to nylon, the Billy Eco15 is the first float to use TPU and is the first PVC free drybag.
Using Biodegradable TPU is much more environmentally friendly than PVC, which uses and contains toxic chemicals. TPU is very durable and resistant to abrasion, it is also tear and puncture-resistant making it an ideal material for a swim float.
NB: We recommend placing electronic items inside a waterproof bag before placing inside the Eco15 drybag. The Billy Eco15 is not a lifesaving device and is for use by competent swimmers. It is not designed to be submerged.
It’s made with Biodegradable TPU an advanced material that is much more environmentally friendly in its manufacture and management, than PVC the production and disposal of which results in the release of toxic, chlorine-based chemicals.
The Billy Eco Float uses Bio-TPU applied to nylon instead of PVC which is common in most tow floats.
The Billy Eco15 swim tow float is the UK’s first Eco-friendly PVC free (drybag) swim tow float.
