Spray hood  ✔
Space in the neck to clearly mark with name (wearer or yacht)  ✔

We have you covered! The Deckvest VITO and Deckvest 6D are packed full of all the features you need and most importantly are easy to wear for long periods offshore:

  • Spinlock lifejackets have a comfortable crotch strap, 40mm wide and easy to operate with gloved hands.

  • The Deck Harness is integrated into the Deckvest and you clip on using the soft loop.

  • The whistle is orange and attached to the oral tube and can be accessed on inflation.

  • Spinlock’s lifting loop is bright red with the words ‘lift here’ written on it, and is attached to the inflatable part of the lifejacket and can be accessed on inflation.

  • The lifejacket bladder has SOLAS approved retro reflective material.

  • The Spinlock Pylon is a SOLAS approved lifejacket light.

  • The spray hood activates on inflation and can be pulled over the head using a black webbing.

  • The back panel of the lifejacket has a printed area which can be written on to mark with a name.







For the Fastnet race you will also need to add-on or carry with you:

•  Spare re-arming kit here.

•  ISO 12401 Safety Line. Crew are required to have either a short + long tether or 3-point tether We recommend the DW-STR/03/C here.

•  Knife – this can be carried in a Spinlock Chest Pack, the pack can also hold your PLB.

Pro Tip: It is recommended that the 275N is not worn as it may hamper entry into life rafts and is much less easy to manoeuvre in a MOB situation.
