  • Regular price £199.00 GBP


What is the difference between a 170N and a 275N lifejacket and which one is right for you? Please read our guide for more details

Product Spec:

- 170N lifejacket harness, suitable for inshore and offshore sailing

- ISO12402-3 approved

- The only lifejacket harness on the market with BackTow Technology. Our patented BackTow technology functions in a MOB situation when the wearer is still tethered to a vessel. 

- Three choices of inflation method: Prosensor Elite, Hammar or Manual. Please see our Inflation Systems Guide here for help choosing the most suitable inflation system for your lifejacket.

- After inflation, the wearer manually pulls the large BackTow handle that is available on top of the right hand lung. The wearer is then turned in to a face-up seated position in the water and they are towed alongside the vessel safely.

- BackTow reduces the risk of injury during recovery by functioning as a strong point. A halyard can be clipped to any part of the BackTow strop and even a small person can then recover a MOB wearing a TeamO with the use of a winch.

- Integrated Deck Safety Harness

- Soft Loop attachment point to clip on to, with new 'BackTow Armed' safety check tab next to clip on point. This allows you to see at a glance that the BackTow system is armed and ready for use. 

- SOLAS approved water-activated light included (5 year warranty. 8 hour continuous operation once activated)

- Fully integrated sprayhood included

- Whistle included

- Double crotch straps - adjustable length, soft loop attachment point on the back, clips on the waist belt at front

- Suitable for adult chest sizes 68cm-144cm

- New ultra-slim quick burst tab covers to prevent accidental unzipping

- Patent number: 2782646

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.

A company that’s making a difference for safer sailing!

Jackets fit and look amazing! I feel safer everyday on the water! Usually having a crew of new sailors/friends it can get nerve wracking, but first lesson before putting sails up is usually how to pull me back aboard.
Jackets arrived to the states within a week and amazing customer service! How can you not support a company like TeamO that’s making a difference for the safety of our small sailing community?

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.

Safety

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
