RESTUBE Basic is a self inflating safety buoy worn around the hips. It is reduced to its basic function and is ideal for water activities with the family, as additional tool aboard a boat, yacht, while fishing or canoeing.

German engineered and made with the highest quality & durable materials - the RESTUBE Basic safety buoy is an essential part of any water sports enthusiast's gear.

Very common uses:

  • Simply wearing while playing at the ocean beach with small children.
  • Worn on waist while on a boat (in addition to a Coast Guard approved vest for each person on board)
  • Yacht parties
  • Fishing

Inflates within seconds with one pull of a trigger cord, with user replaceable CO2 cartridge (1 included), the RESTUBE can also be blown up by mouth in a matter of about 5 breaths. Once inflated, the yellow RESTUBE Basic safety buoy has a buoyancy for  any size swimmer to hang on and rest or swim to safety.  This is NOT an official Coast Guard approved life vest as it does not go over your head, which would be important if you were passed out.  We classify this as a swim buoy.

The RESTUBE is extremely compact in small waist belt pack - it is worn horizontally around the hip using the supplied belt. Ideal for on-board activities, sailing, kayaking, fishing, leisure, stand up paddling and snorkeling.
