Lifeguard Uniforms seem an easy product to find online. And, in many cases, can be purchased for less than $10 per piece. However, what are you getting for your money? This is a question many employers, aquatics professionals, and aquatic facility owners fail to ask themselves prior to hitting the “but now” button on a website.
As is the case with any product in any industry, there are tremendous differences and variations form one brand of the same product to another brand of the product. These, sometimes, subtle differences can result in the lifeguard gear not lasting an entire season. Spending a bit more to outfit your lifeguard staff may save you money in the long run.
I always recommend to swimming pool owners, aquatics directors, beach patrol captains and chiefs as well as lifeguard managers to shop the more well-respected brands that may cost a bit more upfront but that will last the season and the lifeguard crew will enjoy and take pride in wearing.
One of our staff’s favorites is the Original Watermen Collection.
The Original Watermen products are made with quality materials for long-lasting comfort. At the same, their lifeguard line of clothing continues to be a favorite of lifeguards. The guards enjoy the stretch the clothing allows, the quick dry features of the material, and the fashionable fit the uniform pieces provide.
In many cases, the lifeguards can wear these uniforms for several years without wear and tear being noticeable. Hence, over the course of 5 seasons, you might only need to purchase Lifeguard Uniforms one time and saving thousands of dollars in your budget at the same time.
