no restriction in movement only comes with one gas bottle

Really good vest. Had it out on the Atlantic ocean off Donegal on my sit on kayak. Really lite weight not as bluky as a bouancy aid. Your movement is not restricted at all. Reall good product.

oui mais !
leger se fait oublier se dégonfle ! taille petit, pas de poche

l'idée est bonne sauf que...
il taille petit j'ai du faire un échange.
il n'y a pas de poche pour glisser un élément de sécurité: sifflet canif miroir... dommage mais on le sait
c'est quelques mois après achat que j'ai la mauvaise surprise:
tant que vous ne l'utilisez pas en mode prévention tout vas bien, car une fois gonflé il se dégonfle en grande partie en 1/2h, pour un élément de sécurité c'est trés trés gênant.
donc plus aucune confiance en ce produit, je suis bon pour me racheter un vrai gilet.
De plus à ce tarif on est en droit d'avoir de la qualité

Brand's answer :

Bonjour Monsieur
Je vous remercie pour votre avis et je suis désolé que vous n'ayez pas trouvé satisfaction.
Le gilet wairgo a été mis au point et testé soigneusement dans de nombreuses conditions de kayak et de stand up paddle notamment.
La situation que vous décrivez n'est pas normale, le gilet tient en pression pour garantir ses 50N. Il peut éventuellement arriver que la valve de surpression lâche un peu d'air mais le gilet conserve normalement ses 50N de flottabilité.
Je peux vous proposer de l'échanger en magasin. Nous le récupérerons pour analyse.
Pour ce qui est des poches, ce modèle n'en propose pas. Pour l'instant, seul le gilet mousse BA500 en propose. Je prends note de votre idée pour une amélioration future.
Cordialement, 

Irwin Wouts - Chef de Produit
