As noted by NeilPryde, this Buoyancy Aid was designed for the sailor who demands minimum bulk and maximum freedom to move. At a glance, our sailing vest here has soft and ergonomically cut form for comfort and performance, reflective panels and piping, an oversized zipper with a protective flap, and a large stretch mesh drainage pocket.
This vest is made 100 percent out of Nylon Outer and 100 percent NBR rubber inner foam. It’s available in XS/Small, M/Large, and XL/2X Large. It’s CE approved, but not Coast Guard approved and does not serve as a PFD. Instead, this product is meant to aid in flotation of a user.
In the America’s Cup in San Francisco just this past year, Oracle Team USA wore this product. If you visit this link, you’ll see Simeon Tienpont, a member of Oracle Team USA with it on. For more information, please visit our NeilPryde Elite Buoyancy Aid Product Page.
