    I would not waste your time with this safety tube. I tried two different ones and both did not hold air for more than an hour and it is extremely hard to inflate. The only plus was that it is very compact, but I would spend the extra $5 and get one of the other tubes that Leisure Pro sells - the new one I have is so much easier to inflate and durable.

        This item is a trade off between compactness and size. Yes, it serves a useful purpose. No it is not the largest of its type available. I prefer it because I carry many safety items and ease of storage along with compact fit are both important to me.

            I have not had to use it & hope not to have to use it, but seems it would clip anywhere... I clipped in the pocket of my BCD along with a whistle & can not even tell it is on me when diving.

              I found this to be inadequate for use in the ocean. It is simply too short to be seen in anything but flat seas.

                    You would drown in flat water trying to inflate, as there is only a small nub of a mouth piece that you have to pull out with your teeth.
