The Billy Eco15 Drybag Float is lightweight, has optimal streamlining and is designed to be better for the environment.
RRP £26.99 ALSO AVAILABLE FROM STOCKISTS
All Puffin floats are designed with Optimised Streamlining and the Billy Eco15 Drybag is no different. The float’s shape, valve position, low tow point, tow attachment point and direction of tow are all designed to reduce drag.
The drybag floats behind the swimmer and does not interfere with the swimmers’ stroke.
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.
The Eco15 is bright orange to increase the visibility and safety of the swimmer in the water.
The Eco15 Drybag is easy to use, the float has a short adjustable leash attached to it, this leash then simply threads onto the wide and comfortable waist belt. As the leash is attached to the flaot its unlikely to get lost. Both the leash & waist belt are provided and the buckle on the waist belt is chunky to make it easier to operate with cold fingers.
Biodegradable TPU is very durable and resistant to abrasion. It is also tear and puncture resistant making it an ideal material for a swim float. The Eco15 Drybag Float is designed to last for years (certainly as long, if not longer than a PVC float) but when the time comes it can be safely disposed of by cutting off the plastic components such as the valve & straps and composting.
NB: The drybag is waterproof as long as it is used correctly however, we still 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.
Biodegradable TPU is a polyester fabric that has been laminated using a process which is solvent free and low in toxicity which is claimed to be better for the environment compared to PVC. Both the TPU laminate and the polyester fabric the laminate is applied to are biodegradable, when composted they will biodegrade in 3-5 years.
Ensure the plastic pieces are removed from the bag before composting.
