Unlike other jackets on the market, we have developed a unique release flap on the back that prevents the jacket from restricting your breathing when inflated. It has a nylon outer shell and a polyester inner lining that provides great warmth and water protection in all weather conditions. Unlike many other jackets on the market, this one has removable sleeves for versatility and loads of pockets. It features a hoodie that folds away into the collar and a stainless steel ring for securing yourself.
The jacket has a 33g CO² cylinder that provides 165 newtons of buoyancy and has a backup manual inflation valve. This personal floatation device is great for extreme weather conditions and perfect for fishermen and boaties.
The jacket has an automatic inflation system built-in that uses the CO² cylinder to inflate the jacket when it is submerged in water.
For greater control in various situations, we can (upon request) remove the automatic inflation sensor, leaving just the manual rip cord and oral inflation valve.
Note: The date stamped on the CO² gas cylinder is the manufacture date (Not the expiry). These cylinders have a 5 year life span.

Servicing & Self Inspection
As with all inflatable Life Jackets, it's a legal requirement to service them annually as per the manufactures instructions.
These All Weather Jackets can be self serviced for the first two years, but it is highly recommended to have them professionally serviced by an authorised service agent on the 3rd year.
Here is a copy of the service manual & self inspection checklist.
PROOF OF PURCHASE
To ready yourself for when fishing authorities check your safety equipment, it is important you have your proof of purchase with you when out boating. The best way to do this is to put a copy of your PFD receipt/invoice inside a sealable bag like a Glad ziplock bag, and then put this in your pfd pocket.
Why do I need to do this? Your legal servicing requirements start from the date of purchase not the manufacturer date.
UNDERSTANDING PFD STANDARDS
The New Australian Standard is AS4758 (as of July 2010)
The change that will be most noticeable is a new way of identifying PFDs for different uses.
The new standard introduces the identification of PFDs by 'levels'.
- Level 150 - similar to inflatable PFD Type 1 and suitable for offshore use
- Level 100 - similar to PFD Type 1 and the minimum requirement for offshore use
- Level 50 - similar to PFD Type 2
- Level 50 Special Purpose (50S) - to replace PFD Type 3

Although the Safety Standards for life jackets apply national wide, the situations in which they must be worn may vary in each state.
Make sure you check the regulations in your local area before hitting the water.
