Life jackets for adults

Life jackets come in different sizes and it is important that you choose the right size. The purpose of a life jacket is to sit firmly around your body so that it gives you extra buoyancy. A life jacket will help you float to the surface, even if you’re caught in waves or a current. This also applies in cases where someone becomes unconscious. Life jackets for adults should never be given to children, even if they seem to fit them. In our webshop you will find all kinds of life jackets with different sizes. Pay close attention to what sizes you buy and whether they are for children or adults. Life jackets are an ideal safety measure for water sports enthusiasts, because they do not hinder movements. A life jacket is different from a swim vest in that it is often bigger and thicker, which can get in the way of surfers, sailors or kayakers, and especially if you sit in a canoe. Not quite sure which life jacket is best for you? Then you are always welcome in our showroom where we will answer any questions you may have. There we can look at the possibilities together.

Differences in lifejackets

The difference between a life jacket and a swim vest is not always clear to everyone. That is why we explain it here briefly and easily. A swim vest is a buoyancy vest that makes you float in the water much better. In most cases it consists of special foam that ensures that you immediately float up again. In some cases, such as with an automatic swim vest, air is pumped into the vest. Swim vests are ideal for athletes. A life jacket is a more extensive version of the swim vest. It often has a special shape that ensures that you will always float on your back with your head up. These life jackets are used, for example, in aircraft and at the coastguard. They must keep people above water for hours until they are saved. The life jacket ensures that unconscious people cannot drown; after all, the head always remains above water. Life jackets are therefore a more life-saving form of a buoyancy device.

Buy life jackets

Life jackets can be bought through our webshop. There you will find a wide range of life jackets, suitable for adults or children. These life jackets are equipped with a sturdy filling that greatly increases the buoyancy of your body or that of a child. This allows novice water skiers, surfers or kayakers to drop into the water without any problem and immediately climb back onto the boat. It is of course always important to keep your own safety in mind, since a vest can only help you to float. Always check the temperature of the water, watch for any rapids and check the weather before you go on the water. A life jacket is an indispensable addition to your sports equipment and is available in a variety of colors to match your equipment or board.
