Rescue Tubes are made of the highest quality closed cell foam to resist erosion. They're individually hand dipped three times instead of the customary two to ensure the proper adhering of the vinyl coating and to extend the useful life of the equipment dramatically. Kemp's shoulder strap is adjustable and goes all the way through the rescue tube. The edges on the tube are rounded, which is extremely important to prevent cracking and peeling.
When buying rescue equipment, the most important criteria are quality and performance. The 50" (127 cm) tube is the preferred choice of the American Red Cross and the standard rescue tube used by guard training agencies. Best used for pools, water-parks and guard training. Tube measures 50" x 6" x 3.5" (127 cm x 15.2 cm x 8.9 cm) and weighs 5 lbs. (2.27 kg).
