THE WORLD'S TOP SAILING TEAM'S PREFERRED CHOICE OF IMPACT PROTECTION & BUOYANCY

The Water Impact Protection (WIP) vest from FORWARD offers great comfort and protection for all serious sailors (including Kite-Surfers, Wind-Surfers and Stand Up Paddlers).
Fitting close to the body, its neoprene grip strips, on the inside, grip your wetsuit and prevent the vest riding up dangerously.
It ensures good freedom of movement with its wide arm openings, and adjusts to the waist with 2 straps.
This vest is designed to be compatible with trapeze harnesses, it is also compatible Kitesurf and Windsurf harnesses. The lower part of the back panel is made of softer foam impact protection strips, all covered with textile. The buoyancy is distributed over the upper part of the panel, which is denser.

Features

Chosen by several America's Cup teams and professional sailors as a protection solution against impact - thanks to its high-density thermoformed foam, it combines comfort, numerous storage (5 pockets + 1 line cutter storage pocket), 50N buoyancy with superb impact protection.
Optionally it is even possible to integrate a 'Spare Air' kit with a compact oxygen cylinder.
Note - It is a "buoyancy aid" and not a "lifejacket".
