These highly visible and robust buoyancy aids feature 50N (Newtons) of buoyancy making them buoyancy aids as opposed to lifejackets. They are great for beach/shore activities and feature reflective panels and easy fastening zips and buckles.
Buoyancy aids are typically used in sheltered waters and do not generally feature a collar, thus not providing any self righting. They are useful when canoeing or kayaking, when sailing, water skiing or jet skiing. The amount of buoyancy and type of buoyancy aid / lifejacket should be determined by the actual activity you will be partaking in.
Features of the buoyancy aid include:
The difference between a buoyancy aid and a lifejacket is the amount of buoyancy and the ability of the jacket to 'self right' the wearer.
A buoyancy aid provides sufficient buoyancy for use in sheltered waters and does not offer self righting capacity. A lifejacket on the other hand keeps the wearer safely on his or her back and provides enough buoyancy for use in different river and sea conditions.
