We had an email yesterday from a customer who wanted to see how the sprayhood functions on our BackTow lifejacket. What better way to show this than to throw our Head of Design in to the pool to show you in person?! Here Oscar shows you: - TeamO's patented BackTow system, where the handle is located on the lifejacket- SOLAS light, which switches on automatically once wet.
