Dan and Kika, Innovation, Lifejacket Review, Sailing Uma -

 ‘It is good to have an end to journey toward, but it is the journey that matters, in the end’ We couldn’t agree more, so we’ve joined forces with Kika and Dan from Sailing Uma. They are currently crossing the Atlantic as part of their world tour and they have taken a couple of TeamO BackTow lifejackets with them to keep them safe on their journey.    We’re planning to catch up with @Sailing Uma at Southampton Boat Show in a few weeks, but if you haven't come across these guys before we recommend checking out their Youtube channel...

Fastnet 2019, Innovation, Lauren Mead -

Tomorrow is the start of the Fastnet race, the biggest event in the UK offshore sailing calendar this year. There are record breaking numbers of boats going around the rock – nearly 3000 sailors in total are going to be taking on the 600nm course and there is an excited sense of anticipation building around the Yacht Haven in Cowes as the count down to the start gun gets closer. It’s been a madly busy couple of weeks for TeamO as we have been sending lifejackets out day and night to teams who are competing. It has been quite humbling to...

business, Innovation, R&D -

Wise words from one of our favorite business hero’s (@davidhieatt) and we’re listening.   1- Speed is more important than size. 2 - Direction can change quickly. Values do not. 3 - No passengers. 4 - The fewer people, the quicker the decisions. 5 - You are here to make waves, not ride them. 6 - No ego’s. They slow you down. Team first. 7 - Listen to your instinct. Then act. 8 - Goliath has history. But up ahead is the future. Get there first. 9 - There is no map. Pioneers have to imagine the way, not read it....

BackTow Technology, Innovation, lifejacket, Pool Test, Product Review, Video -

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. It operates for 8 hours continuously (unless switched off) and has a 5 year warranty- the whistle- the oral tube, for topping up the lifejacket if so desired- the sprayhood and how it...

Muy buena calidad de producto y servicio

Todo perfecto, producto de buena calidad y servicio fiable. Debido al brexit hay que pagar los costes de aduana e impuestos cuando te entregan el paquete. He podido colocar en el interior una baliza personal PLB1 Rescueme de Onesignal, aunque no pude fijarla en el soplador por falta de espacio. Por otro lado el chaleco es muy ligero, confortable y en dias calurosos se soporta bién.

Great lifejacket

Got two of these recently in different colours and got to wear them on a few coastal passages. The jackets are very comfortable, almost to the point of not noticing you are wearing one - and no more neck pain, which is fantastic. They appear very well made, look great and so far have served us well, hopefully will continue doing so in an actual emergency, should one occur. The only small gripe I have is the little loop for hanging the jacket up digging into my back - I'll probably just cut it off as I hang the jacket by the harness attachment point (much wider). Highly recommended product overall, thank you TeamO for all the incredible work I'm sure you had to do to get these on the market.

Great so far

I have worn this a few times and it’s so comfortable with a jacket on I forgot I was wearing it. I have noticed that there is a loop at the neck for hanging it up that is pretty stiff. I would prefer that sit flatter. All in all, great pfd so far.

So far loving it!

Have only worn it for a couple weeks but so far really happy with this lifejacket. It seems well made and fits nicely. As a larger chested lady I was looking for a vest that would not place all the bulk on top of my chest and this has most of it on neck/shoulders, but far enough back on neck that I have full head mobility. My only suggestion would be that the vertical back panel would have adjustable height so I could get the chest strap to truly sit underneath my breasts. I realize this is a specific fit issue that might not apply to most, it still fits better than most all the lifejackets I have tried up until this point. I was surprised to receive my order to the US from the UK really quickly.

Outstanding product and Customer Service

The website was out of stock so I emailed the company. I heard back within 3 business days. I was kept apprised of why no stock and when to expect. I was emailed the day the items posted. I ordered and received the package in 5 days to the US from UK! Lauren and TeamO went above and beyond any other companies customer service Ive ever encountered. Product is amazing too. Our sail club is ordering them.
