Deckvest VITO

Offshore 170N Hammar Lifejacket

from £274.99
Vito transparent
from £274.99

Deckvest VITO is the latest Spinlock inflatable lifejacket harness technology, based on our design work for the Volvo Ocean Race.

All teams were equipped with the same inflatable lifejacket harness developed in collaboration with a core group of Volvo offshore sailors.

Fundamental to the new design was a lifejacket that crews actually wanted to wear more frequently, with developed custom features.

Hammar® inflator

Hammar® Hydrostatic Automatic Inflator

The Hammar® inflation system is activated by water pressure and will not inflate until the cap is approximately 10cm underwater. 

This system is designed for use in more extreme conditions and extended offshore sailing. The benefit of the Hammar® system is that the jacket cannot accidentally inflate from being wet with rain and sea spray.

The unit has a single indicator to show if armed. Delayed inflation can be caused if full immersion of the firing head is delayed by buoyant foul weather clothing.

See: Inflation Systems Explained.

Harness Release System

Harness Release System (HRS™)

The Deckvest VITO is a 170N lifejacket with integrated Deck safety Harness.  All VITO Deckvests are built to allow them to be upgraded with the unique Spinlock Harness Release System (HRS™). This revolutionary system, evolved directly from the  development work with the Volvo Ocean Race,  is in the final stage of approval testing and will be launched early 2019. HRS™ is a unique system that ensures a simple release from a safetyline, even when fully loaded. It is easily accessible with either hand, but significantly reduces the risk of an accidental snag or release.

If required – at an additional cost, Spinlock can upgrade any VITO to include the new Harness Release System once it is available in 2019.

In 2019 the Vito will also be available to order with the HRS™ fitted.
