New from SeaSafe Systems, the British manufacturer of specialist marine safety clothing, is the Sea Trekker Navigator – a gilet style, sleeveless jacket with a concealed hood that features an integrated lifejacket, which means it’s both stylish and safe. Ideal for the warmer summer months, hidden away is the built-in, self-righting 170 Newton lifejacket inflation system that will automatically inflate when immersed. With the Sea Trekker Navigator no one would realise the wearer has a lifejacket on, yet should the user go overboard this gilet becomes a potentially life saving lifejacket in less than five seconds.
Made from an outer two-tone fabric of red over beige microfibre, it also has a rear black mesh panel which allows air to flow through the garment, providing a cool, lightweight feel.
The Sea Trekker Navigator may be stylish but it’s highly practical too with an impressive range of features such as outside zipped pocket jettings, front webbing straps (useful to hold a compass or to clip on a VHF), retro-reflective tape over the shoulders, lifting becket with stainless steel D Ring, crotch strap with detachable clip, SOLAS approved automatic light, gusset pocket with Aquapac mini phone case attached, flare pocket, knife/Maglite holder under Velcro flap, a radio microphone loop at top of oral tube cover and two outside zipped fleece lined pockets.
Priced at just £249.95 (inc VAT), a wide range of sizes are available from XS up to XXXL and orders can be placed directly with the factory at Cowes on the Isle of Wight.
