How Important Parkas Are For Lifeguards?
Staying warm is essential for lifeguards to stay alert, but they don’t have the time to unzip and unbutton a jacket if someone is in danger. This is why all lifeguard parkas have been specially designed so that they may be easily taken off. When they need to dive into the water, a lifeguard can shed a lifeguard parka much faster than a normal jacket or sweatshirt.
Choosing The Best Parkas For Lifeguards
Thinking about getting new lifeguard parkas for an individual or team? Here are some design aspects you should be considering for optimal comfort, warmth, and safety:
Most lifeguard parkas come with either fleece or faux fur lining. Parkas with fleece lining can be worn wet, straight out of the water, but faux fur lining is best for spectators, lifeguards, and coaches who only wear parkas when they're dry.
Typically, parkas have two side pockets, but some of the latest models offer media pockets, goggle storage, and inner pockets. These models are also great for carrying phones, notepads, whistles, radios, and anything else a lifeguard may need when on duty.
If you want to avoid overheating, get parkas that offer plenty of ventilation. Our team suggests to look for parkas for lifeguards with underarm vents and back flaps to ensure extra air circulation.
Some parkas can be customized to accommodate custom embroidery and a color of your choosing. This is useful when organizations seek parkas in specific colors or designs for their lifeguards, coaches, and swimmers.
