Nice quality.

Most comfortable

Great looking and the quality is superb. I love the fact that the collar sits back off my neck so it’s not weighing down and really unnoticeable when wearing it. We purchased ours for an offshore race which was rather challenging with high wind speeds. This product fitted well and never irritated me like others have done with being too heavy on the neck.

Comfortable and Reassuring PFD

I have two of these now and love them! The comfort and quality are great. The features within this life jacket are very reassuring and I highly recommend them to anyone who ventures out to sea. My wife also thinks the colors and design are great.


Appears to be a quality inflatable harness. I have worn it on two short open water races for 36 and 48 hrs that involved night portions. Very comfortable. I put my AIS beacon inside attached to the manual inflation tube with no problem.

Great Service

Really slick service and quality product
