Product Overview

Zhik created a lightweight and streamlined Racing life jacket designed to meet the demands of sailboat racing.

Providing lightweight comfort that won’t obstruct your mobility during a race, Zhik’s Racing life jacket offers the confidence and functionality racers need. With a close fitting cut and soft polyethylene foam, this life jacket keeps you comfortable all day. Large arm holes and the high waist design allow for superior freedom of movement so you can pull off any maneuver.

By designing the Racing life jacket with no extra or unnecessary straps and buckles, Zhik ensures you will not get hung up due to stray straps. With an easy side zip entry and one bottom buckle to secure your life jacket, just set it and forget it. The back of this PFD won’t ride up due to a rubber strip on the inside. A large front pocket with a Velcro® closure stores your gear or snacks and drainage holes at the corners allow water to escape. Comfortable and effective, Zhik’s Racing life jacket keeps you safe while allowing for maximum mobility while sailing.
