Plastimo Pilot 165 Automatic Lifejackets

Our thoughts...

Complies with ISO 12402-3 which specifies the safety requirements for lifejackets with a performance level of 150 Newtons buoyancy.

Plastimo Pilot Automatic Life jackets are slim line lifejackets which have been designed to be as compact as possible so that it is practical to wear all the time whilst cruising. This style of life jacket is extremely comfortable and non-intrusive to cruising activity as it is fairly lightweight, ergonomically designed to sit suitably around the body and made from robust materials.

The design of this adult lifejacket means it is capable of self-righting persons in the water, turning most wearers face up within 5 seconds, even if the wearer is unconscious (based on a wearer equipped with regular foul weather gear). These lifejackets are automatic lifejackets, meaning that they will inflate and provide buoyancy when immersed in water and provides 150 Newtons of buoyancy. 

The Plastimo Pilot lifejackets are manufactured with an independent internal air bladder and robust exterior protection jacket. The exterior protection jacket is designed to prevent piercing of the internal air bladder and wraps around the air bladder and is held together firmly with velcro. When the air bladder is inflated it forces the protective outer layer to pull apart from the velcro and release the brightly coloured, yellow, inflated bladder to provide 150 Newtons of buoyancy (which complies with ISO 12402-3).

An automatic lifejacket refers to the way the air chamber is inflated. An automatic system works by way of a dissolvable crystal element that triggers the firing mechanism when dissolved by water submersion. With this automatic life jacket, a manual pull cord is also easy to hand in case a problem occurs and the auto-inflation mechanism has not triggered.

Plastimo ISO Pilot Lifejacket Exterior

The two-toned, attractive, yet robust protective outer cover is designed to be appealing to wear at all times when on a boat and is an efficient protective cover for the internal air bladder and firing mechanism.

Key features:

  • Two-toned colour design
  • Twin shoulder reflective strips
  • Quick-release waist buckle
  • Wrap-around adjustable waist strap
  • Secure velcro fastening (that will release if the bladder is inflated)
  • Manufactured from robust polyester, polypropylene, polyamide and polyacetal
  • Resistance to UV rays, sea & hydrocarbons, heat, corrosion, pull and tear and abrasion

  • Manual pull cord for inflating the air chamber if the automatic firing fails
  • Tube for oral inflation which features a non-return valve
  • Grab handle (for helping to hoist wearer out of the water)
  • A whistle secured to a lanyard is clipped inside the jacket for an audible signal
  • Manufactured from robust polyester, polypropylene, polyamide and polyacetal
  • Resistance to UV-rays, Sea & hydrocarbons, heat, corrosion, pull and tear and abrasion.
