Alan Bramwell - UK on holiday in Capri
Fantastic product!! Didn’t stop the fun. After breaking his wrist a week before our trip to Italy with friends, our son was miserable thinking he’d have to sit out the fun on the sidelines of the swimming pool and beach. I found this product after a quick Google search and although a little skeptical decided to buy a couple of the full arm protectors (my sons cast being past the elbow). 1st day in the pool was a little worrying and the arm stayed above the water line for much of the time spent in the pool. We then had the idea of sending our friends daughter in the pool wearing the Bloccs we also shoved it full of tissue paper to see if there was any signs of water ingress. We had her jumping in and doing a full test of all swim strokes. The Bloccs passed with flying colours and we never looked back. One tip that helped us no end… You have to expel all the air from the Bloccs before fully submerging in the water, this usually meant lowering the limb into the water while holding a finger in the seal until all the air had been expelled. We found this quite difficult especially in the sea where you had to contend with waves. We soon discovered that the best way to remove the air and meaning no water was involved was to insert a drinking straw into the seal and suck the air out, this also made for a much better seal. All in all and excellent product and as many have mentioned before a holiday saver
Full Arm Cast? No problem!
