Triton PFD Type1 Foam Life Jacket - Child Extra Small
Notify me when back in stock
Size: CHILD X-SMALL
Weight: 10 - 15 KG
Rating: Level 100 (Type 1)
Max Chest: 75cm
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 experience, this XS Jacket is generally not suitable for children younger than 2.5 years old, and is definately not suitable for babies or infants.
(Inflant jackets have to be specifically designed to accomodate an infants disproportionately large head size.)
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.

Xsmall life jacketBy: Amy Elias on 25 December 2016 (verified purchase)I bought this life jacket for my 11 month old we have a boat and I had trouble finding something small enough but this is a perfect fit and he doesn't mind wearing it. I can't wait use it in the water.
Excellent!By: Elizabeth McArthur on 3 December 2016 (verified purchase)We recently purchased this life jacket for our kids. It is fantastic and they love wearing it - we have a hard time getting them to take it off!! Highly recommended, great quality and service
Menace MarineBy: Bev Kemp on 28 November 2016 (verified purchase)Great product and excellent postage. Very quick and ready for summer.
Great LifejacketBy: Farnaby on 11 November 2016 (verified purchase)Top quality lifejacket! We are very happy with our purchase...will fit our kids for years! The whistle is loud enough but not so that's it becomes irritating when they are walking round the house in it getting ready to go in the boat. Our daughter is very petite and finds the sides ride up abit into her chin when sitting, but that's nothing a couple of months of growth can't fix. Love how it also has the strap that goes between the legs. Makes a big difference in keeping the jacket in place.

Life JacketBy: Ian Grover on 1 January 2016 (verified purchase)Hi, I recently bought a life jacket for my 1 year old grandson to enjoy our swimming pool in safety, get him used to the water. It's still a bit big for him, so we don't use it, but it will fit him soon, he is a 1 y/o, weighs about 10 kgs. I hate buying clothes or these things online because they usually NEVER fit, I couldn't get anything in our remote town of Mildura, next major town is Bendigo (4 hour drive away). Thank you for your prompt service and I received what I ordered.
