When we set out to design the BackTow lifejacket the industry at large told us that it could not be done. It was too hard. Too complicated to engineer. Our favourite response from a competitor was "not that many people die that way anyway."

Even one unnecessary death was unacceptable to us, so we set out to prove them wrong. We focused on solving the problem, and we did. The BackTow lifejacket is still the only lifejacket that can keep you face-up in the water if you go overboard clipped on.  It went on to win several design awards and is now stocked all over the place, worn by sailors all over the world. Our customer clearly saw the value of innovation, even if our competitors had not.

Being the new kids on the block you tend to gravitate toward other outside-the-box thinkers.

Created by sailors for sailors, it brings all of the essential information you need for passage planning in to one app and presents it in a beautifully simple, easy to use way.

This life jacket is so light and noninvasive that I forget that I’m wearing it. I highly recommend it!


We received our 170N life vests within two weeks of placing our order. We live in Texas and expected shipping from the UK to take longer. The vests are comfortable to were while on deck. My wife and I are leaving Galveston in April for our years long cruising life and I purchased these life vests because we are expecting to be on watch alone at various intervals. We both clip in our tethers and use jack lines when necessary to go forward while underway.. Neither of us has ever fallen overboard and this is our greatest fear while underway. This vest appears to provide the best possibility for survival if one of us fall overboard while alone on deck.

Hoping I never need to use it in anger but so far satisfied with the product.
Fits perfectly, feels lighter than previous version and just love the colour.. !
Initially I didn’t know who to direct my emails to .. but once I found a contact communication ran smoothly.

Few Upgrades and would be Perfect

Now that I worn it for a little while now it’s a really good product! I’m quite happy with it. The only reason I can’t give it five stars is because the leg straps just aren’t beefy enough. I’d like something more substantial to hold on to me if I fall overboard.. These little teeny tiny thin straps will dig into your legs real quick… This is literally the only thing that’s not built to an industrial standard, everything about this lifevest is made for offshore cruising!
