SwimWays Spring Float {Review & Giveaway}

Considering the number of days it has been over 100° here in the Midwest, it seems that our only ways of escaping the heat have been to hide out indoors in the air conditioning or to hit the pool.

As an added bonus with spending time in the water, I love seeing the improvements that my kids have made over the years and just how much they enjoy splashing and swimming. They may not be the next Michael Phelps, but the laughter and the smiles as they jump in, kick around, and paddle back and forth brings a smile to all of us.

Thanks to the SwimWays Swim Steps review that we participated in last month, my girls have had an even better time working on their swim skills and the confidence that they have received from using these high quality products has been wonderful. Instead of clinging tightly to my husband or me, they have the self-assurance that they can venture into the water on their own (with us still close by, of course).

So where does that leave me? With the opportunity to get in a tiny bit of relaxation and enjoyment of my own... particularly with the SwimWays Spring Float and the comfort that it can provide.

SwimWays Swim Float

The perfect combination of convenience and comfort, the Spring Float pool float includes a single pillow and an inflatable ring around soothing mesh that cradles the entire body.

This quick and relaxing way to lounge in the pool is portable, quickly-inflated and even comes complete with its own carry tote. As an added bonus, the Spring Float is available in a variety of styles and colors, including blue/aqua, white/aqua, pink/blue and aqua/blue so that you can choose your favorite way to kick back in style.

Considering that I'll take just about any excuse for some relaxation, when the SwimWays Spring Float arrived, I couldn't wait to plan our next trip to the pool. As I unpacked this float, right away I was impressed that something so large could fit down into such a small package.

SwimWays Spring Float review

I appreciate that the mesh bag that comes with the Spring Float is great for keeping it packed up for storage or to toss into a tote when carrying it with you. When you get to your destination, whether that be the beach, the pool, or in your own backyard oasis, simply unzip, pull the float out and it pops right open.

There are two nozzles for inflation/deflation on this float and, as they feature Jet Valve technology, it hardly takes any time to have the entire thing blown up and ready to go. In around one minute total, it was time to hit the waves.

SwimWays Spring Float

Although the simple design might initially lead to being skeptical about how comfortable this float would be, SwimWays does not disappoint! The padded pillow is plenty strong enough that I can lean back and rest my head, the mesh bottom is just right for keeping me in the water enough to stay cool, and the 66" x 40" size is perfect for just about any member of the family.

There isn't much more that I could ask for!

We can just all pretend that I'm relaxing on the waves right now, right?

Although I've reserved the Spring Float for myself (or possibly my husband if he's lucky), the size does provide plenty of room for a smaller relaxation participant as well. As a plus, because this float doesn't sit above the water and require "lifting" yourself onto it, it is easy for kids to climb aboard and stay sturdy.

When it came time to fold up this float, it only took me a time or two trying to remember how to twist and condense it at the same time, but soon I had the Spring Float right back in the mesh bag and ready for next time. I appreciate that SwimWays even has a handy video showing how to fold it down just in case you find yourself wondering how it was possible that it fit right back inside.

When it comes to enjoying the water, SwimWays has all of the products that you need. Their passion for creating toys, floats, games, and gear that help you make the most of your time in the pool provide entertainment as well as safety for the whole family. I'm looking forward to including them in our future summers as well as warm-weather trips!

The SwimWays Spring Float retails for $29.95 and is available directly from their website, on Amazon or from retailers nationwide. With plenty of hot weather still to come, now is a great time to purchase one of these floats so that you can experience the relaxation of resting just right in the water so that your body stays cool while being aloft.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon be prepared for some fun time kicking back in the water, because...

One lucky person will win a Spring Float from SwimWays!
