Product Overview

West Marine’s Deluxe Rapid Dry Watersports Life Jackets are designed to keep you safe and comfortable during all your watersport activities!

Comfortable for all water activities, but specifically designed for high-performance watersports, the Deluxe Rapid Dry comes equipped with a stretchable, Flex-Back panel for outstanding maneuverability. Sculpted PVC foam in the shoulders and waist offer a custom-like fit that is comfortable yet buoyant. Large armholes provide an unlimited range of motion so you won’t be restricted when executing jumps and tricks.

With “Rapid Dry” technology, these vests quickly shed water to keep you drier and lighter, since the last thing you want while trying to catch some air is a sopping-wet vest slowing you down! Complemented by the BioLite™ Neoprene shell, this lightweight life vest gives you an advantage when attempting to be airborne.
