Sportsboat/keelboat bouyancy aid
Gill will be exhibiting their new Compressor Vest at the London Boatshow starting this Friday. The vest was awarded a ‘Special Mention’ in the category of ‘Life Saving and Safety Equipment’ at the recent METS DAME Awards.
The bouyancy aid is designed to be extremely low profile around the wearer minimising bulk and reducing windage - improving comfort and ensuring ease of movement. A snug fit also ensures the vest is held securely to the body when in the water so that it provides the maximum amount of buoyancy.
To prevent snagging, there are no loose loops or straps. Instead, the waist belt is concealed inside the back of the vest, fastening across the front to a snap-shut buckle on the left side.
Approved as a 50Newton buoyancy aid to the ISO EN12402/5 standard, the low-profile, futuristically-designed PFD (personal flotation device) is made from 3mm neoprene with a Lycra lining. Each foam section is ergonomically shaped and held firmly in place within the vest lining to ensure a close, comfortable and effective fit that moves with the body say the company.
