Dinghy racers and paddlers enjoy excellent freedom of movement and comfort with the Medalist Life Jacket.

Offering performance features at an affordable price, this life jacket’s kinetic internal neoprene system provides dynamic tension for a comfortable fit in motion. The slim, neoprene-lined shoulder straps are unobtrusive and the wide-cut armholes enable superior maneuverability while quickly moving about your boat. Additionally, the short cut of this life jacket provides full mobility and less bulk around your midsection. 

Along with freedom of movement and comfort comes extra security with the adjustable, bottom belt buckle and reflective details for high visibility. Constructed of lightweight PVC and polyethylene foam that provides 16 pounds of buoyancy in case you fall in! Without being heavy or restrictive and appointed with adjustable, comfortable features, this life jacket is ideal for paddling, sailing a dinghy or paddling activities.
