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

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

- Fully integrated Sprayhood included.

- Whistle included

- Suitable for adult chest sizes 68cm-144cm

- Double adjusters on the back for improved comfort and fit

- Patent number: 2782646

Excellent product

I'm really pleased with this lifejacket (170N offshore). It's very comfortable, and a doddle to adjust from hot-and-sunny-summer-sailing to full oilskins. It's also easy to open up and check over. I absolutely love the concept of the back-tow harness - a genuinely brilliant idea which really could actually make the difference between life and death; especially if you do much single- or short-handed sailing, why would you have anything else? I also love the fact that they're a proper, honest-to-goodness UK-made product made by people who sail. Highly recommended.

Great so far

I have worn this a few times and it’s so comfortable with a jacket on I forgot I was wearing it. I have noticed that there is a loop at the neck for hanging it up that is pretty stiff. I would prefer that sit flatter. All in all, great pfd so far.

So far loving it!

Have only worn it for a couple weeks but so far really happy with this lifejacket. It seems well made and fits nicely. As a larger chested lady I was looking for a vest that would not place all the bulk on top of my chest and this has most of it on neck/shoulders, but far enough back on neck that I have full head mobility. My only suggestion would be that the vertical back panel would have adjustable height so I could get the chest strap to truly sit underneath my breasts. I realize this is a specific fit issue that might not apply to most, it still fits better than most all the lifejackets I have tried up until this point. I was surprised to receive my order to the US from the UK really quickly.

A Safe, Stylist & Sexy PFD

After seeing the demonstration of the Back-Tow system on Sailing UMA (YouTube Channel), I was very impressed with the Team0 PFD.
I have only used it once (Sailing Weather in Ireland has been crap) and it's extremely comfortable.
Thankfully I haven't had the opportunity to test the Back-tow system yet :)

Great Service

Unfortunately I have yet to get out on the water with this lifejacket, due to storms etc. postponing trips out, but my dealings with Team O have been great, thanks!

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

Comfortable & gives sense do security

This is my third life jackets and could
Say one of the most comfortable
I had, easy to put on and off and has flat back so I can do my yoga posture while
Wearing it ! I have not tried it in the water yet and hope that I have never experience it but the sense of security and safety keeps me happy . I also like the new blue / turquoise colour as my husband has blue /royal blue which was previous edition so we don’t have problem picking the ‘wrong ‘ one as each is adjusted to personal body shape. Will Definitely recommend it !

Muy buena calidad de producto y servicio

Todo perfecto, producto de buena calidad y servicio fiable. Debido al brexit hay que pagar los costes de aduana e impuestos cuando te entregan el paquete. He podido colocar en el interior una baliza personal PLB1 Rescueme de Onesignal, aunque no pude fijarla en el soplador por falta de espacio. Por otro lado el chaleco es muy ligero, confortable y en dias calurosos se soporta bién.

Great lifejacket

Got two of these recently in different colours and got to wear them on a few coastal passages. The jackets are very comfortable, almost to the point of not noticing you are wearing one - and no more neck pain, which is fantastic. They appear very well made, look great and so far have served us well, hopefully will continue doing so in an actual emergency, should one occur. The only small gripe I have is the little loop for hanging the jacket up digging into my back - I'll probably just cut it off as I hang the jacket by the harness attachment point (much wider). Highly recommended product overall, thank you TeamO for all the incredible work I'm sure you had to do to get these on the market.
