About Carter Personal Float

The Personal Float may be the Single Most-Important Piece of Underwater Equipment you ever Own. The Optional, Detachable 12" x 12" (30 5 x 30 5 cm) Dive Flags on both sides of the Float's Top makes it Highly-Visible from a Considerable-Distance. Also a 2" (5 cm) Wide Reflective Strip makes the Floats Highly-Visible at Night. The One-Way Oral Inflation Valve allows the Diver to Tightly-Inflate the Float at the Surface, while a One-Way Flapper Valve allows Air into the Bottom of the Float. The Over-Pressure/Dump Valve Vents Excess-Air as the Personal Float Ascends to the Surface and the Handle at the Top of the Float can be used as an Attachment-Point for a Light.

The Float is constructed out of a very Durable 400-Denier Polyurethane-Coated Nylon Material. A Velcro Strip at the Bottom of the Bag Holds-the-Float in a Tight-Roll when it is not in use. Adding a 4 lb (1 82 kg) Weight makes the Personal Float Remain-Vertical in the Water (weight not included). Personal Floats are available in different Buoyancies: 35, 50, and 75 lbs (15 9, 22 7, or 34 kg) of Lift. The 35 lb (15 9 kg) Lift Float measures (L x Dia ) 72" x 4" (182 9 x 10 2 cm), 50 lbs (22 7 kg) Lift Float measures 120" x 4" (304 8 x 10 2 cm) and the 75 lbs (34 kg) Lift Float measures 90" x 5" (228 6 x 12 7 cm).

Tough and Better by Design

    Comments about Carter Personal Float:

    I originaly purchased the bag as an emergency signalling device for warm water diving. But the 50 lbs version I have is much to bulky for this application. (Its heavy duty constuction makes it bulkier) But for scooter or drift divers who may stray a fair distance from the dive boat this is the right tool for the job. The fact that it is open bottom and a sealed bag at the same time is genius.

      Comments about Carter Personal Float:

      This safety sausage is well though out!
      By virtue of it's clever design; it is both an open bottom and closed bag in one.
      It's a bit bulkier than the lesser quality bags available, but this is because of it's heavy duty contruction.
      It's the real McCoy!

      Comments about Carter Personal Float:

      This is heavy duty but when rolled up is only slightly larger than many 6 ft SMBs. I can fill it half full from 15 ft before I have to let go. I can then ascend after my safety stop and fill it to the full 10 ft from just below the surface. It is easy to fill tight at the surface from your regulator exhaust tee using exhaled air.

        Comments about Carter Personal Float:

        UPDATE TO PREVIOUS POST--
        I was spearfishing off NC coast. We were drift diving. I had several fish on a stringer. I came up and the boat was ½ mile away. Seas were 3-4 foot. Meanwhile a 10 ft tiger shark showed up. I first tried a smaller 6 ft plastic I had previoulsly bought. It was too flimsy and just fell over in the breeze. I brought out the Carter PF-50 and it was the only thing the boat saw. It saved my bacon. I have at least 4 divers that have a PF-50 who all equally rave about this float.

        Carter, Thank you for making the only PF on the market that does the job and does so very well. Also made in USA. Great stuff.

          Comments about Carter Personal Float:

          Carter use to make a smaller version of this buoy wich has lasted for years of personal use. I bought this for friends. A litle bulky but when needed they do a gret job.
          I recently lost the diving boat wich was able to find me thanks to the buoy.
          Very well made.

          Questions about this item:

          Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
          ALLEN M  Is a real safety sausage. Long enough to be seen far away and stands up in high wind. Very well built and made in USA
          Shopper  Are the weights removable or adjustable? Do I carry 4 lbs less weight in my bcd?
          MIKE W  There are no weights attached to this item. Additionally, from a safety point of view. Never adjust your weights for something else you may have with you, camera etc. If you have to drop or accidentally drop that item you will have lost control of your buoyancy.
          Shopper  Hi, Do you have the 35LB Carter Personal Float in Red or Orange?
          LeisurePro S  Sorry, we only have this float in yellow at this time.
