Triton Hybrid / Life jacket

Triton Hybrid
Triton Hybrid

Triton Hybrid is a life jacket that gives optimal mobility and safety for sailors. The life jacket is hybrid, it has both an inflatable bladder with 150 Newton buoyancy and buoyancy foam that corresponds to 50 N. It is cool as a garment and combines the advantages of both the inflatable elements and buoyancy foam. The buoyancy foam is an extra safety, you stay afloat even with a failure on the gas cartridge.

Each year drownings account for more than 70% of all boating fatalities. Of the people who drown, over 80% were not wearing a life jacket. Studies indicate that lack of comfort and credibility are reasons why life jackets are not used.
