TeamO was founded after a number of high-profile accidents and deaths involving sailors being let down by their lifejacket and tether safety equipment. There was clearly a need for an innovative new approach to life saving design. Oscar Mead (the youngest ever finisher of the solo transatlantic OSTAR race) came up with the idea of a lifejacket that will keep a wearer safe if they go overboard whilst tethered to a vessel. The BackTow lifejacket was the result!

TeamO launched it's patented BackTow lifejacket harness to the market in Spring 2017, and since then it has received wide spread acclaim - it was even called 'revolutionary' by one of the industry's leading publications.

In 2018 TeamO has plans to expand it's product range by introducing two new life saving products. The AutoLock Tether, which was nominated for a DAME Design Award and which won the 2018 Pittman Innovation Award in the USA, is due for release in the next few months. A third product, the Hi-Lift Lifejacket will be available by the end of the year.

TeamO is driven by a passion for being on the water. We want to help keep people safe whilst they get on with pushing the envelope in their chosen field, whether that involves crossing oceans, racing around the coast and buoys or cruising on a summer day with family. We've thought about your safety needs, so that you don't need to. Our innovative designs will keep you safe when you most need your kit to perform.
