I just ordered the third Olympus Tough series camera for my family. Great cameras made even more usable by this handy little float strap. We swim in a chlorine pool every week & the strap keeps floating. We have used it in the ocean countless times, in rivers and in lakes. I am careful to rinse all my gear in fresh water after each use to avoid degradation.
The only concern I have is that the very thin part of the strap that connects to the camera could break. But, thus far it hasn't.
Tip: I now write name & phone number on the strap in Sharpie marker so if it ever floats away from reach, someone can call me to give it back.
