  • Sale
  • Regular price £199.00 GBP

- 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 manoverboard situation when the wearer is still tethered to a vessel. 

- The lifejacket is inflated manually by pulling the red toggle on the left hand side of the jacket.

- 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
