HOW TO WEAR A SNORKELING VEST - VIDEO TRANSCRIPT:
The snorkeling vest is one of the most overlooked pieces of equipment when one plans a snorkeling adventure. They come in two different sizes and to help determine the size needed, snorkeling vests have the weight limit printed on them along with other important information. The information printed on the vest should be read and understood by the person wearing it.
Familiarize yourself with the various parts of the vest which include usually two adjustable straps, one is the waist strap and the other is the crotch strap. There is also an oral inflation tube with an inflation valve and locking ring. Before putting the snorkeling vest on, loosen the adjustable straps, making them bigger. Place your head through the hole so that the crotch strap falls behind you. Find the waist strap and bring it around behind you and secure the male buckle to the corresponding female buckle. Adjust the strap on the snorkeling vest so that it is snug. Next, find the crotch strap and bring it up between the legs and connect the male end to the corresponding female end. Once secured, adjust the straps to your personal level of comfort.
The snorkel vest is normally left deflated while snorkeling and used when the snorkeler needs to rest. To inflate the vest, grab the oral inflator and place it to your lips. Pull the oral inflator valve down to open it and blow air into it. Blow just enough air into the vest to be able to remain positively buoyant without having to kick. This may take more than one breath. Make sure that you release the oral inflator valve between breaths so you will not lose the air that you put in it. Some people may wish to use the snorkeling vest while it is partially inflated which is advisable as in the case of children. There is a rotating lock ring just below the oral inflator valve which may be used to avoid accidental deflation of the unit. Snorkeling should never be done alone. Children should always be supervised at all times.
