Weight: 10 - 25 KG
Rating: Level 50 (Type 2)
Max Chest: 85cm
Not for Babies or Infants:
It's important that both the weight and chest size suits your child. Although your child may be within the weight bracket, the jacket's chest size may still be too large.
From our experience, your child should be at least 3 years old to best fit this jacket.
This Hercules Life Jacket meets the latest Australian Standard (AS4758.1) to give you peace of mind when around water with your children. A Level 50 (Type 2) Life Jacket is designed with your safety and comfort in mind. Made with a bright safe visible colour and large arm holes for freedom or movement, this safety vest can be worn all day long.
It also features an adjustable strap so the Life Jacket can be secured around various body shapes. For added safety it includes a safety whistle, a strong zip, HI-VIZ strips and strong buckles. Because this is a child jacket, it has the very important leg/groin strap to reduce the risk of the jacket floating up over the child's head when in the water.
This Safety Jacket is approved for all Australian States and Territories (including New Zealand).
Because of the unique multi-layered shaved foam in our Jackets, they are very comfortable to wear especially for water sports like waterskiing, canoeing, kayaking and jet skiing.
If you need free movement to get the most enjoyment from your water sports, the Hercules Type 2 Level 50 PFD is the answer! Not intended as your primary jacket for offshore use, the Hercules is built instead for those water-lovers looking for a jacket to use aboard a canoe, kayak, dinghy, raft or anywhere else that flotation support is needed. The Hercules is built with the same care and attention all Menace jackets receive.

Childs PFD2 life jacketBy: Gerald Green on 6 February 2016 (verified purchase)I purchased this life jacket on eBay from Menace Marine for my grandson to wear when doubling up in my kayak and my daughters stand up paddle board. At $38 delivered it is good value, is of good quality and meets the Victorian marine regulations standard. My almost 4 year old grandson tried it out for buoyancy in the bay today (shallow water) and it works fine.
