Here’s a recommendation for everyone who is consciously purchasing eco-friendly clothing only – check out O’Brien’s traditional life vest. This sleek and comfortable piece of equipment will make you fall in love with every water sport regardless of how fit you are.

Featuring BioLite material, the jacket is breathable and quickly-drying – the two characteristics you should be looking for in a life vest. 

The segmented panels that include a front hinge and large armholes allow you to freely move with the jacket without being physically restricted. 

There are 2 adjustable belts and a full front zip closure for getting that snug-but-not-tight fit that keeps you safe on the water. The Traditional vest also has a PWC lanyard attachment ring that keeps the lanyard out of your way.
