Jettribe RS-16 race Vest
I had the world wide exclusivity in the past to test the first ever vest made with a built-in back protector which was made by an Italian company. Now, after six years Jettribe made its move by presenting in the personal watercraft market a unique vest with a detachable back protector. In other words the vest can be used for recreational and race applications. It incorporates a built-in rescue harness on the left shoulder which allows easy retrieval of downed rider during race. It is a unique features which no other vest in the personal watercraft is equipped with and it has been appreciate it by the IJSBA, APBA and TJSBA rescue course marshals. It is made by single piece compression molded foam in the front chest of additional impact dissipation. It is equipped with dual 38mm quick release buckles on the right and features an interchangeable flag patch on the right shoulder. Seamless integration with Jettribe back protector design to work with the Jettribe race collar harness. Additionally it has a built-in lanyard attachment. It weights only One pound while detachable back protector adds another 5 pounds. Since I have been wearing the Italian vest for over 5 years I was already familiar with the built-in back protector system. The particular Jettribe race vest is easy to wear it and since you put it on, you actually do not feel it. It is shorter on the front so you do not get any kind of discomfort when you ride a Runabout. The fact that you can remove the back protector makes life easier when you go for a recreation. It is a one of a kind Race Vest and a good investment for every racer. Bear in mind that Jettribe Race Vest costs almost half the price of the Italian made vest which is an important fact too.

    This vest is awesome, It defiantly has the protection you need if you race or tend to ride a little aggressive. The fit and finish seems top notch!!!

    I was recommended by a friend, and I will pass this vest along to others.
