Izeber 50 N floatation vest

Warmth and buoyancy

The innovation behind the Izeber 50 N vest

Most coastal sailors continually put off wearing their life jacket. And yet every year a great many of them fall overboard.

With a view to increasing safety and convenience, TRIBORD designed a sleeveless vest using insulation capable of providing the same buoyancy as a 50 Newton life jacket (ISO standard 12402-05). This level of buoyancy is due to closed-cell polyethylene strips, which are filled with air and microbeads.
These strips make the Izeber 50 N Floatation Vest very supple, providing excellent freedom of movement for manoeuvres.

Despite its casual-wear look, the Izeber 50 N Floatation Vest is a highly technical piece of equipment: it provides the amateur yachtsperson with protection against the cold and wind but also safety in the event of falling overboard. It does all of this without even feeling like you’re wearing a life jacket. This reversible vest can also provide high visibility, should the need arise - just turn it inside out to reveal the fluorescent orange side with reflective panels.

With the TRIBORD Izeber 50 N Floatation Vest, sailors get all the benefits without having to think about extra protection against drowning.

Tribord Product Manager

The Izeber vest responds to two of sailors’ primary concerns:
Safety (it provides buoyancy without having to be inflated or activated in any way - 50 N,
ISO 12402-5 standard). Thermal insulation (a windproof and water-repellent outer, and a
thermal fill). Both reversible and practical, it works just as well worn orange side out
for visibility as it does blue or black side out for that more discreet look, perfect for
before and after sailing.
