ATHENA 165 HARNESS LIFEJACKET
The Athena 165 Harness is a women’s life jacket and the world’s first inflatable life jacket developed for women’s bodies. The vest recently came 2nd in the Innovation of the Year class in the prestigious British Sailing Award. The fit is tailored to the woman’s anatomy – we placed the valve and cartridge under the bust for maximum flexibility and fit. Athena 165 Harness Lifejacket has extra good adjustment possibilities and is pretty and flexible. The life vest closes easily with a comfortable padded velcro, which protects from the hard buckle of the waistband. This variant is also equipped with an integrated harness. Athena 165 Harness has a high carrying capacity of 165N and is therefore classified as a lifejacket.

WHICH MODEL SHOULD I SELECT?
A good buoyancy aid rated to 50Newton class will support a person over 25 kg with a good freeboard but will still require the wearer to be a good swimmer as it will not turn you over into the safe back position. This category contains all-purpose, specialist buoyancy aids and floatation clothing. These are popular products because they have a perfect balance between function, freedom of movement and security.
If you require more buoyancy or are a non-swimmer you should look at our 100Newton lifejacket selection and these are available in sizes to suit persons from 3 kg to over 100Kg. We would like to point out that we are especially proud of our children’s 100Newtons lifejackets. Should you require more freedom of movement and extra buoyancy please look at 150 Newton inflatable lifejackets.

WHICH SIZE SHOULD I SELECT?
It is more important that a lifejacket should be selected for fit and comfort and not to be able to ride up rather than the weight category indicated on the label. For children, this is especially true and the lifejacket should never be purchased to “grow into”.
