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

170N offshore lifejacket

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.

Good product

So far so good. Comfortable. Good packaging.

Safety Confidence

Excellent quality in the materials used, reenforced stitching, and overall construction. I feel much safer knowing if I go overboard while single-handing that I will be towed on my back. Rather than drowned while being drug facing forward - as is the design flaw of all other PFFs - in my opinion. This back-tow design is a must for any serious sailor.

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

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!

Great craftsmanship

I just opened my new N170 and am incredibly impressed. The craftsmanship is truly superb.
I spent my entire career of 46yrs. either as a sailmaker or running my own canvas shop for 34 years. It really is a piece of art, hats off to the people who make these. I of course will recommend it as the one to buy.
I was hoping that I ordered it in time for the included tether. Close but no cigar.
Thank you all for working so hard to put out a great product

Great buying experience, well made product.

The whole buying experience was professional and smooth.
Product arrived promptly and very well packed.

Jacket itself appears a very well made, quality product. Clearly in a different league to some of the others I have here.
Neat, tight stow, with a well fitting cover. Supportive harness. Shaped yoke and straps make for a good, snug, yet comfortable fit.

Very comfortable to wear, male 1.8m & 85kg.
My vhf and PLB holsters fitted easily. Sizing adjusts easily to suit appropriate ppe.

I'd v probably give 5 stars once I've had some longer days afloat with it, but quite early days yet...

One of the best LJs I've used during. >40 year career in commercial marine industries.

V pleased, would buy again.
