TeamO Marine Coastal Lifejacket with BackTow Technology. lifejacket. What lifejacket do I need? What lifejacket do you need for coastal sailing?

The Coastal is ISO approved and combines our unique patented BackTow Technology into the integrated deckharness - this means that you clip on with your safety tether from the lifejacket to the lifelines on deck. If you were to fall overboard the TeamO lifejacket will automatically inflate (if you are wearing the Automatic inflation lifejacket model. Users of the Manual inflation lifejacket models must manually pull the inflation toggle on their jacket) The BackTow handle will then be available on top of the lifejacket lung. The user can pull the BackTow handle to release their clip-on point from the waistbelt. This will move the clip-on point from the front to the back of the lifejacket, and will rotate the wearer from a face-down position in the water to a safe face-up position.

The ManOverBoard (MOB) will remain with the boat, safely tethered on, being towed face-up through the water by the BackTow system. The BackTow system protects the user from being washed away from the boat where recovery from the water is extremely difficult. The structural 'A' frame of the BackTow strop is also an ISO-approved lifting point. A halyard can be clipped to the strop and used to winch the user back on board with reduced chance of injury during this process.

Features of the Coastal Lifejacket Deckharness:

Following feedback from customers that they wanted a smaller, lighter, more affordable version of the BackTow lifejacket deckharness, TeamO created the Coastal lifejacket model. The Coastal combines all of the things you need for an overnight sail or passage sailing.

A sprayhood and  SOLAS approved light can be purchased separately and fitted in to the Coastal lifejacket cover if you wish to add these items.

There are two inflation options for the Coastal lifejacket: Automatic or Manual. The Automatic lifejacket features the UML Mark 5i inflation system. Rearming kits for this system can be purchased from TeamO Marine or are widely available in most chandleries around the world. Alternatively you may prefer the Manual inflation option. For this lifejacket the user must manually pull an inflation toggle available on the front of the lifejacket to trigger the inflation. Both the Automatic and Manual version of the Coastal are fitted with a 38g C02 cylinder cartridge which can be purchased from TeamO Marine or any good chandlery.

The Coastal Lifejacket is available in black with orange or pink trim or blue with yellow trim. The range features our new technical honeycomb weave fabrics throughout which offer a more durable, tougher exterior for longer product life.

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.
