    A lot of our local instructors use these. He sells a very nice auger with them, too.

    They aren't cheap.

    I wouldn't use it. They make very nice well thought out and very expensive stuff, but unless I'm teaching I have no use for a float and If I'm teaching - given the distance and hills we have to climb to get to the water, I don't want a 40 lb float. The inner-tube floats work just fine and after 15 years it's still looks and works great. But that's just how we do it here.

    We use simillar floats with openwater classes all the time. Excepting the exo-skeleton, this isn't a new idea.
