For years we have always worn our life jackets upside down to stay afloat in coves etc. We would laugh at each other and talk about how we should invent something better. I have purcahsed many products that do the same but none have worked as well as the "diaper". Well someone finally made something that looks like the perfect solution. http://www.bodybobber.com/

Not exactly something I'd wear, but that sure could have saved "astronaut lady" a lot of embarrassment.

That's really pricey at $50. I just use a couple of those foam pool noodles. Cost: about $3.

Would that counteract for my upper body flotation devices which came with my body?

Just think about the mess Obama inherit this time. And it ain't Bush's fault!!!

I would be afraid to wear it. I bet you would look like a manatee trying to swim in one and Florida boaters would try to run you over.

Saw them (or something similar) at the Miami show last year.

Joe, I thought of your brother Chuck the second I saw them. Emailed him when I got back.

Look funky but does serve a purpose...

If you are knocked unconcious, it looks like that device would flip you up-side-down. Is it approved for use as a flotation device, or just a recreational toy?

Jonathan, I am the one who taught Chuck how to diaper the life jacket.
Bob, its for recreation only and makes for holding your beer a lot easier when floating.
