Description

This over-the-head entry automatic inflatable PFD is designed with a lightweight, low-profile chassis that will not limit mobility during high output grinding and sail changes. Hydrostatic Inflator Technology (HIT) automatically inflates under water pressure and not when you encounter rain or spray. A pull cord allows you to inflate the vest at any time manually; the handle tucks away to avoid snags when not needed. The back-mounted sprayhood is stowable, and internal storage holds AIS, PLBs, strobes, or other electronics. The lifting loop, marine-grade whistle, and retro-reflective material all provide a safer marine experience.
