How is it different from a life jacket?
A lot of confusion often arises between the terms "life jacket" and "life jacket". But what exactly are the differences between these two types of vests? The main difference between these two types of vests is in the collar. This is because a life jacket does not have a collar that keeps your head above water.
Instead, a life jacket serves as an aid to help you float better. However, you must be able to swim properly. Life jackets are often used during water sports because your orientation under water deteriorates if you fall hard. You might end up swimming to the bottom instead of going to the surface. With a life jacket, you can prevent this from happening, because you are already fairly pulled to the surface.
A life jacket, on the other hand, serves primarily as a rescue device in emergency situations. Thus, you will always stay afloat regardless of your mental or physical state at the time. Therefore, you do not have to be able to swim to stay afloat.
Different types of life jackets
If you are looking for a life jacket you will soon be presented with the choice between two different types of vests, namely a solid state or automatic life jacket. Both types have the same function, but work slightly differently. So below we explain to you exactly what the differences are, so you can make a good choice for yourself.
You can recognize a solid-state lifejacket by the large collar that ensures you always keep your head above water. The vest is filled with foam which provides the high buoyancy. Because of this, you don't need any swimming experience to stay afloat.
So these are ideal life jackets for children who do not yet have a swimming certificate, but would still like to spend a day on the boat. Take a look at our assortment and find the life jacket that fits your needs.
An automatic life jacket is becoming increasingly popular, as they offer more comfort on the boat. For example, you have more freedom of movement because the vest only inflates itself when it comes into contact with water. The vest features a salt tablet that is in contact with a CO2 cartridge.
When the vest comes into contact with the water, the firing pin shoots into the CO2 cartridge and the vest automatically inflates. Then you stay afloat and prevent the risk of drowning. When the vest has been used, the salt tablet and CO2 cartridge should be reloaded so that the vest can be used again.
In our assortment you will find various automatic vests with the following buoyancy ratings:
