Good value, arms holes could be cut a little more generously that’s all
Glad my phone works under water to leave this review.
These are not all rated at 70N buoyancy. If you zoom in on the product picture you can see the following details:
25-40kg - 40N
40-60kg - 55N
60-80kg - 70N
80+kg - 70N
I wish that I'd noticed this before buying. Feel that I've been mis-sold the product due to incorrect product details on the website.
Thank you for your feedback. There is everything correct with these vests. 70N applies to the biggest sizes and heaviest users. People with lower weight and 2 other vest sizes will have exactly the same support from 40N or 55N like 80kg person with 70N one. All sizes in this model apply to the 70N category even if they have smaller Newtons number.
Our BA vest and life jackets have been externally tested and all apply to the international safety standards. I hope this information will reassure you that you purchased safe and correct category product.
Once again apologies for any inconvenience caused.
A reasonably priced buoyancy aid, good fit and easy to paddle with. Excellent entry level buoyancy aid
A brilliant product for people who need help staying afloat in deep water.
Great product easy to put on feels good.....
Bought it for my 18 y/o son. Good quality and good safety. But, he doesn't want to wear the crotch straps, He says it hurts when he's in the water. All other kids seem to be find with it. Do you have tips? Should I just cut it?
Thank you for your contact with us. Unfortunately this is very important part of the BA. In some extreme situations this vest could slide out from user without this strap being in place. Specially in the strong current waters. I can only recommend to maybe surround it with some thin sponge to make it softer and more comfortable to use.

When I got home I found my 70N buoyancy aid was labelled 50N bouyancy, on returning to the store I found all sizes were labelled 50N buoyancy, even the smallest ones which could give the unwary to think they had super buoyancy. I did find one aid exactly same as the one I'd bought but labelled correctly with 70N, and the staff were great changing it for me.
well made, comfortable rugged
