Why is clipping on important?

Why is clipping on important?

Great little 30 second reminder here from the Royal Yachting Association about why clipping on is important.

Clipping on with a regular lifejacket makes NO sense to us - if you fall overboard your lifejacket and tether combination will tow you face down in the water next to the boat, where the risk of drowning is incredibly high.

Tethers used in combination with BackTow lifejackets however make complete sense. If you fall overboard and deploy the BackTow system the lifejacket will rotate you on to your back and you will be in a seated position, face up next to the boat. The BackTow strop can then be used as a recovery system to safely get your MOB back onboard.

Stay clipped on, stay with the boat, stay the right way up.

    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.

    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!
