Adult Life Jackets
As sailors ourselves, we understand how paramount having the best possible safety equipment is, which is why we only stock adult life jackets from industry leading brands including Crewsaver, Seago and Spinlock.
Our life jackets for adults are suitable for all types of sailors. Whether it’s a jacket for occasional use while on the water, or a professional life jacket packed with the latest safety features, we have a product suitable for you.
Our adult life jackets are designed with sailors of all sizes and shapes in mind including both men and women, with each jacket being adjustable depending on the frame of the wearer. If you’re looking to kit the family out in new life jackets for your next boat trip, we’d recommend exploring our kids life jackets range, to ensure a comfortable fit for everyone on board.
Prices range from an entry level life jacket, which will set you back around £45, through to top-of-the-range alternatives which have all of the latest technologies for keeping your head above water.
Adult life jackets are inflated using four different methods. The inflation method chosen may be a personal preference, or a requirement of the regulations for the waters you sail in or sport you compete in. If you’re looking for a life jacket with a particular inflation method, take a look at our dedicated pages, where you can scroll through Automatic, Manual, Hammar and Pro Sensor life jackets with ease.
Life Jackets vs Buoyancy Aids:
Buoyancy aids are simply designed to aid you with buoyancy when you fall into the water. For watersports including kayaking, windsurfing and dinghy sailing, we'd recommend a buoyancy aid over a life jacket.
Once activated, a life jacket is designed to keep your airways clear of water, even if you are unconcious. After the life jacket is activated, you'll need to repack it and purchase a replacement re-arming kit.
Please note that the most appropriate life jacket for an adult will also depend on the type of activity undertaken. For example, whether you’re sailing in coastal and inshore waters, or venturing further afield where waters may be more choppy. For more information, take a look at our life jackets guide, or get in touch with our friendly team who will be happy to guide you in the right direction.
