Build next-level strength and power in the water with the Speedo Dragtini swim parachute. Lightweight and durable, it features a UV and mildew-resistant finish and is quick drying. 

SPEEDO DRAGTINI SWIM PARACHUTE 

This is last on my list for Drag Chutes with the Dragtini by Speedo. It is a well designed, durable and quality basic training tool. The fabric is very durable and is constructed from DiMension-Polyant Code Zero fabric. These 4 layers of woven sailing fabric are lightweight, resistant to mildew, tearing or stretching. The Chute opens automatically in water and gives you a stable tension with no tangling from the 360 degrees of rotation. The buoy easily adjusts for ideal floating of the chute. I have 2 recommendations and they are that the waist belt where buckles are should have been thicker as it creates a slight pinching effect. There is only one resistance level, which doesn’t allow for increased resistance training over time. The price point is in the middle and reasonable at $79. In general, the Speedo Dragtini, is a very simple, reasonably priced and durable Drag Chute which is missing several key features for a comfort and long term progressive training tool.

THE BOTTOM LINE 

In general, the Speedo Dragtini, is a very simple, reasonably priced and durable Drag Chute which is missing several key features for a comfort and long term progressive training tool.
