This industrial, general-purpose life jacket by Imperial features large armholes and open sides for maximum comfort and freedom of movement. Constructed from polyethylene foam to keep you buoyant and featuring 20” of SOLAS grade reflective tape to keep you visible when your life depends on it. 

A durable, oil-resistant polyester shell protects against deterioration caused by exposure to ultra-violet light for a long-lasting, weather-resistant life jacket. With two, encircling, 1-1/2” body belts and a 1” chest strap keep this life jacket stays securely in place and won’t get in your way with the snag resistant buckle closures. Strength tested at 50mph, the General Purpose life jacket from Imperial is tough and reliable.
