Description

Low profile neoprene buoyancy aid, specifically developed to fit snugly in all the right places. Unique to Rooster, this CE12402-5 certified buoyancy aid is an advance in our buoyancy aid range. Complemented by minimalist styling to match the maximum kit combinations. It is longer and thinner to be less bulky when worn – there is minimal adjustment to limit bulk, however the neoprene allows it to stretch to fit to your body size.

Warning:This is not an Impact Vest.

Although the foam panels will give some protection from knocks and falls, it is not certified to provide Impact protection. The race armour buoyancy aid is developed with sufficient buoyancy as per regulation EN ISO 12402-5:2020, Practice and training are required with this device before use. Teach the child to float in this buoyancy aid.

Please note: Since the UK exit from the EU, there are further Buoyancy Aid regulations that will come into play for the UK market from January 2023 onwards. All Rooster buoyancy aids are currently undergoing these tests to make sure that they align with both EN ISO 12402-5:2020 and the new UKCA Module B certification.

buoyancy aid

nice fit need to check out measurements on site. quite a bit heavier than previous buoyancy aids I have had. does fit under boom off laser when kicker on which is always important. have not yet got tiller extension up arm hole which happens on other makes and has led to me normally having to wear a spray top over the top.

caused a bit off a laugh at club as they thought I was dressed a marvel superhero.

Sleek and very snug

I bought this in size medium last week. It arrived promptly and was beautifully packaged. I was impatient and wriggled into it over my usual daytime clothes - a cotton long sleeve shirt and a lightweight fleece. My initial impression was disappointment. It simply felt too tight. (I’m slightly built, about 5ft 9in, 36in chest and weigh 66kg). So how did I get it wrong? Well actually, it all worked out fine… I tried it again on Sunday morning over a pair of Rooster hikers, polypro top and Aquafleece. After only a few moments I was reassured that it was in fact a very good fit. It’s very snug (a lot different to a standard buoyancy aid; and needs a bit of getting used to), it’s a bit like being hugged all day! I wore it for racing both morning and afternoon and found it to be very sleek with a low profile. It’s nicely flexible and comfortable too, but an added benefit for me was that the close fit gave slightly greater thermal insulation, keeping my torso warm and comfortable. I’m not sure how it will age with continuous use, as the material is softer and more flexible than a regular buoyancy aid (time will tell). But it is very well made and has the typical Rooster feeling of quality and robustness, so I’m optimistic it will give good service.

Simply a Must-Have!

This is a must-have addition to your kit bag, as it is just such an advantage over the classics. I sometimes used to struggle with getting under an ILCA boom when tacking (and got dragged in multiple times because of this), but this bouyancy aid has made the problem quite literally vanish! This is due to its low profile, accompanied with its extremely flexible panels making it easy to move around the boat.

Snug

This was recommended to me by our club laser captain, and I am pleased with the snug fit and ease of movement.
