Crewsaver Ergofit 290N Extreme Lifejacket Auto with S20 AIS Beacon
Designed exclusively with Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing, and based on the highly successful Crewsaver ErgoFit lifejacket collection, the ErgoFit Extreme maintains all of the high specification safety features of the ErgoFit 290N whilst providing essential performance attributes for the serious sailor.

This version is pre-fitted with a McMurdo Smartfind S20 Personal AIS Beacon which will activate automatically on inflation of the jacket. Using its high precision internal GPS, it will transmit position information and a serialised identity number back to your vessel's onboard AIS enabled plotter (and to other vessels in the vicinity), enabling you to be quickly located and recovered.

o 3D shape provides the ultimate in comfort and performance
o A transparent 'window' on the front of the jacket showing the status of the inflator, allowing you to check your lifejacket is in working order without having to unpack and repack the jacket
o Automatic firing head
o Pre-fitted spray hood, automatic light and dual crotch straps
o Dual buckle system and side waist adjusters, uniquely designed to ensure swift donning - essential if the wind gets up and it's all hands on deck
o Breathable Air Mesh lining
o PLB pocket
o Twin lifting beckets
o Robust 300D nylon heavy duty cover, chosen specifically for its durability and comfort
o YKK Quick burst zip
o Increased buoyancy - 290N Newton's (approved to ISO 275N)
o Exceptional turning speeds
o Dual light weight soft loop D-rings for attaching a safety line
o A unique hanging loop built into the jacket, makes hanging the jacket below deck as simple and efficient as possible
o Unique bladder distribution, providing turning solutions in less than three seconds and allows you to move your arms freely
o A built in inflatable chin support tilts your neck back and keeps your airways clear
o A unique numbering system is printed on the garment for crews operating numerous amounts of jackets
o Approved to BS EN ISO 12402-2

o Fully automatic deployment and activation
o Will transmit continuously for a minimum of 24 hours
o Waterproof and submersible to 5m
