- Great product, great price

I got my deckvest in August and have worn it very often since. It is very comfortable and is packed with essential safety equipment that not all lifejackets come with, such as a safety line cutter. Force 4 also offer the deckvest at a price significantly lower than the RRP. 202613 on Saturday, 4th November 2017
