Absolute Outdoor Onyx Inflatable Life Jacket

See all pictures

A wide range of motions without bulky feeling is what Absolute Outdoor Onyx inflatable life jacket is all about. Granted, it’s not designed for weak swimmers, but those who are skilled swimmers can easily reap the benefits of it.

You can inflate the vest either manually – by pulling a T-cord – or let it automatically inflate when in the water. The sleek design of the jacket keeps the swimmer cool in the hot weather, while the Neoprene neckline provides you with the comfort for kayaking or fishing all day long. 

The Nylon incorporated into the construction of the life vest is made to be durable – there is zero chance of you starting to notice any signs of wear and tear in the first year of use. 

The cherry on top is the reflective piping that comes in handy once the sun sets.
