Product Information

  • Forward WIP Impact Vest

    Impact protection and buoyancy in one with this impact vest from Forward WIP.

    The Water Impact Protection (WIP) vest from FORWARD offers great comfort and protection for all serious sailors. It can also be worn for other sports such as kite surfing, windsurfing and stand up paddleboarding.

    Fitting close to the body, the neoprene grip strips on the inside grip your wetsuit and prevent the vest riding up dangerously. The buoyancy vest ensures good freedom of movement with its wide arm openings, and adjusts at the waist with 2 straps.

    This vest is designed to be compatible with trapeze harnesses, it is also compatible Kitesurf and Windsurf harnesses. The lower part of the back panel is made of softer foam impact protection strips, all covered with textile. The buoyancy is distributed over the upper part of the panel, which is denser.

    Features

    • 50N of buoyancy, but above all a real protection against impact shocks thanks to its high-density thermoformed foam
    • It also includes 2 pads that  slide into the sides of the vest to protect the lower ribs
    • Closure : YKK side zip and double adjustment strap
    • 2 neoprene strips inside to grip your wetsuit and prevent the ride-up commonly seen on some buoyancy aids
    • 5 pockets of different sizes : 1 large zipper, 1 back panel, 2 shoulder, 1 knife pocket, 1 dedicated line cutting area, all easily accessible
    • This Impact Vest meets the standard 50N - ISO 12402-5

WIP have really pulled out all the stops on this impact vest to suit all forms of hi-performance watersports. Feels great on, good snug fit - no restrictions to movement and doesn't impact on trapezing like a lot of buoyancy aids. A very well made, high quality vest that has everything you need to keep you safe on the water.

Thanks Ian, glad you like your Forward WIP Impact Vest.

Great service, prompt delivery. Unfortunately the vest is a little large around the upper chest area and a small is not available, so I maybe returning it within the 30 days return period. The vest is excellent quality and just what I am looking for.
