This is the Forward Sailing Water Impact Protection Vest Size Small

Catamarans or other high performance boats, such as skiffs, are going faster and faster and if incidents occur, can cause significant trauma in the case of a fast deceleration or capsize.
Thermoformed front and back panels allow a good shock protection and a flex for maximum freedom of movement and a very slim fit. The bottom is designed to be compatible with a harness.
Great for Kite Sailing too!

 

Specifications

Thermoformed high density foam, complying to EN393/A1 and ISO 12402-5
50N buoyancy.
