Size: CHILD MEDIUM
Weight: 25 - 40 KG
Rating: Level 100 (Type 1)
Max Chest: 95cm
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.
This Triton Life Jacket meets the latest Australia Standard (AS4758) to give you peace of mind when around water with your children. A Level 100 (Type 1) Life Jacket is designed with your safety and comfort in mind. Made with a bright safe visible colour and large arm holes for freedom of 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 childs head when in the water.

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.

Great low cost PFD'sBy: David on 10 June 2017 (verified purchase)Goods arrived in good time. Exactly as described and quality product.
Kids Life JacketBy: Grant on 13 January 2017 (verified purchase)Jacket is in brand new condition and arrived promptly (especially for an interstate order). Unfortunately as with any online purchase there is an element of risk and I predict limited use from this product simply from the perspective of purchasing a lifejacket bordering too small. My child is only a fine build and I expected the medium would suit. Not quite the case. he can wear it but just a bit tight. On the bright side,, I have a younger son who will eventually grow into this jacket but perhaps aim for the bigger side if buying unseen.
