Inflatable life jacket for those with over 54″ chest size

We have searched long and hard for an inflatable life jacket that would fits folks with chest sizes over 54 inches. This seems to be the maximum allowed by the U.S. Coast Guard but we have located a product designed for aviation use which fits the bill.

The Switlik X-Back vest will fit those with over 54″ chest sizes in addition to fitting those with smaller chest sizes. It is a manual inflation life jacket (aviation life jackets never use auto-inflators) and it is NOT U.S. Coast Guard approved so you will have to carry a normal life jacket on board to comply with USCG regulations. Still this is an excellent product that will provide years of service and be comfortable to wear.

For more information or if you wish to order an X-Back Life Vest our web store will fill you in.
