Buoyancy vest Impact 50N

Forward WIP

The Water Impact Protection (WIP) vest by FORWARD offers great comfort and protection for serious sailors (including Kite Surfers & SUP paddlers).

This WIP vest has a close-fitting, low bulk design that offers great mobility and a large range of movement  Everyday benefits include ability to swim faster and re-board a capsized boat easier. The WIP vest is designed to be compatible with the FORWARD WIP tops & pants, and our sailing harness, as well as most other sailing harnesses.

Chosen by several of the America's Cup teams and other top sailors, they select this as their perfect solution.  It is arguably the most comfortable buoyancy aid/impact vest you will ever wear!
