Featured products

Deckvest 6D

Deckvest 6D - Line up v2 (1)Source: Spinlock

Discover the world leading lifejacket harness for the ultimate protection, comfort and style. While the recommended buoyancy for any offshore sailing is 170N, this 275N lifejacket goes beyond that, making it more likely to hold a user’s head out of the water, support any extra weight when carrying tools or equipment and in critical circumstances may turn over a face-down body quicker.

Not only that, but the Deckvest 6D is water activated and comes with 1 LED light which illuminates the lifejacket to aid in visibility.
