- 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 inflates and 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.

INFLATION SYSTEM:

UML Pro Sensor inflator

This is a water sensitive activation system, that uses a compress paper capsule which dissolves when wet, which then releases a spring to puncture the CO2 cylinder.

The cap is designed so that only water flowing upwards through the unit will cause it to activate. Water, spray and rain running down the jacket will not cause activation.

The Pro Sensor has two indicators that show the status of the CO2 cylinder and firing head.
