Spinlock Life Jackets
Spinlock life jackets are UK manufactured; designed with quality and innovative technology in mind, as demonstrated throughout their life jacket product range.
It’s for this reason that you’ll see a Spinlock life jacket equipped by many of the teams in the America’s Cup and Volvo Ocean Race, with the UK based company having earned several prestigious awards for their efforts towards developing a safer, more reliable life jacket.
In 2017, Spinlock's Deckvest range won the Queen’s Award for innovation, following the introduction of a life jacket harness that was both visually appealing and comfortable for regular wear. The campaigning led by Spinlock around their innovative Deckvest life jacket helped to encourage the wearing of a life jacket and highlighted its importance as a necessity, rather than a nice-to-have for those at sea, whether it be for hobby or for profession.
With the introduction of this new award-winning harness technology, Spinlock life jackets duly earned the rights to supply the Royal Yachting Association for ten years.
It therefore goes without saying that the Spinlock Deckvest is now one of the most popular life jackets available on the market, bringing leading technology at an affordable price. The range extends from the entry-level Spinlock Deckvest LITE 170N Automatic Life Jacket; through to professional jackets like the Spinlock Deckvest 6D Life Jacket and Spinlock Deckvest VITO Life Jacket - the latter, a result of over 3 million calmative miles worth of testing.
In actual fact, the Deckvest 6D and Deckvest VITO Life Jackets are a perfect example of Spinlock's constant push for innovation, as both life jacket's feature Spinlock's Harness Release System. This unique system derives from Volvo's partnership with the Volvo Ocean Race, and provides a simple release from a safety line that's easily accessible with either hand, even when fully loaded. This significantly reduces the risk of an accidental snag or release. Both life jackets feautre in our 'Best Life Jackets' guide.

Spinlock also set the standard for life jacket accessory innovation too. The DAME Award Winning (2015) Lume-On LED Life Jacket Lights are fitted to the bladder of a life jacket, then automatically illuminate when they come into contact with the water, enabling a casualty to be significantly more visible. The small yet powerful lights come as standard on Spinlock's Deckvest 6D and Deckvest VITO Life Jackets, but can be retrofitted to any life jacket using a similar adhesion method to retro-reflective tape.
