Legend 165 Harness Life jacket with integrated harness is very popular, and there are several reasons. It has Baltic’s uncompromising quality down to the smallest detail, with all that extra good fit and design means – here with a safety harness attachment. The vest sits a little further out on the shoulders and further back from the neck than others, which makes it extremely comfortable for you who, for example, need to quickly turn your head and move on a sailboat. The materials are soft and flexible with an airy mesh lining in the back. The harness has a woven loop. Here there is a good carrying capacity of 165N, which makes the Legend165 Harness a life jacket. Here is our safety thinking with an inspection window so you can always see that the life jacket’s cartridge is loaded and fully functional. The model also has a removable crotch strap and whistle.

RACE Category INFLAT ABLE LIFEJACKET
Lifejackets in this category are designed for active sailing and especially to be comfortable to wear for long periods. All lifejackets in the Racing category are available with an integrated spray hood and lifejacket light to comply with the current international yacht racing regulations.
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”.
