Starting back open water swimming myself soon. So I got a tow float that has storage in it. Will probably need to out keys in another bag to be sure they don't get wet, but thought this was a good option as confidence wouldn't be what it was when I last did ows last

Well I will only be swimming between mid may to October at the latest so no gloves/booties/ hats (neoprene) needed. That's lake swimming to which is cooler than the sea in general

The boots are great. I swim with just swimsuit and boots and find them a lifesaver when it’s very cold. Your feet and hands really feel it. Do you need full wetsuit? The vests are really handy and so much easier to get off than a wetsuit. Enjoy it.
