This is an essential piece of safety equipment for sailors who are planning coastal sailing, overnight trips & cruising passages

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.

Great jackets, unreliable customer service

It is unfortunate that my experience with Teamomarine has been marred by poor communication since I started the process in May and the product was finally delivered in July. It's frustrating when emails go without a response, the phone was never answered and it was a constant push to find out what was happening to my order. I understand there are current supply issues but a short email or text can reassure a customer that they have not been forgotten.
The products, however, are first rate, which is why I stuck with the process. A unique design and quality, I hope I never to have to use them in anger.

Dear Alasdair,

Thanks for your feedback. We will reply by email as well, but we wanted to publicly apologise for the slow communication that you experienced during your order. We have made no secret of the fact that production has been incredibly difficult this year, with several of our suppliers either entirely closed or running with long delays on parts which has affected our own UK manufacturing hub. We have done our best to keep communicating that so that customers are kept up to date, but in one or two cases emails have been missed or left unanswered, which is my bad. I can understand why this has created frustration and confusion about the status of your order. Since July we have welcomed a new team member to the business and are implementing new customer service systems so we are working to prevent this happening in future. Thank you for sticking with us, I am so glad to hear that the product meets your expectations. If there is anything else we can help with please don't hesitate to get in touch with me.

Best wishes,

Lauren

Comfortable & gives sense do security

This is my third life jackets and could
Say one of the most comfortable
I had, easy to put on and off and has flat back so I can do my yoga posture while
Wearing it ! I have not tried it in the water yet and hope that I have never experience it but the sense of security and safety keeps me happy . I also like the new blue / turquoise colour as my husband has blue /royal blue which was previous edition so we don’t have problem picking the ‘wrong ‘ one as each is adjusted to personal body shape. Will Definitely recommend it !

Excellent product

I'm really pleased with this lifejacket (170N offshore). It's very comfortable, and a doddle to adjust from hot-and-sunny-summer-sailing to full oilskins. It's also easy to open up and check over. I absolutely love the concept of the back-tow harness - a genuinely brilliant idea which really could actually make the difference between life and death; especially if you do much single- or short-handed sailing, why would you have anything else? I also love the fact that they're a proper, honest-to-goodness UK-made product made by people who sail. Highly recommended.

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.
