A premium inflatable life jacket at an affordable price, the M.I.T. 100 was designed with style.
A pleasure to wear and easy to use, it incorporates Membrane Inflatable Technology™ for reduced weight and a lighter, more flexible fit. Ultra-easy to maintain and easy to wear, the M.I.T. is a breezy option for all your recreational needs.
Designed to automatically inflate when submerged in water, this life jacket will also automatically self-right most wearers in seconds of water entry. The built-in, arming status window shows green when your inflator is properly armed and ready to use. You will want to visually inspect your life jacket for leaks, rips, holes, or tears between uses. If red, the mechanism requires service and you will need to rearm your life jacket. In case of emergency or malfunction, manually inflate this life jacket by pulling the yellow lanyard tab or by blowing in the oral inflation tube.
Inflatable life jackets are designed to be lightweight and low profile offering maximum mobility. This feature minimizes bulk so it fits well over your rash guard or offshore jacket. The Membrane Inflatable Technology in this life jacket offers a flexible fit for so much freedom of movement you can wear this life jacket for extended periods of time without noticing it.
Constructed from durable 500-Denier Cordura® shell, this Inflatable life jacket was built for use in all weather conditions. The one fold design makes repacking and rearming this life jacket a breeze. With its single buckle design, it is easy to don on and off as well.
