RS-17.2 Side Entry Race Vest - Blue 

The Jettribe RS 17.2 Side-Entry Impact Vest is an excellent vest for closed course racing, offshore endurance racing, and naturally for recreation PWC riding as well. The built-in high density compression molded chest plate is designed to reduce chest impacts.

Our vests utilize an ink fusion technology instead of traditional silkscreen ink. The ink fusion wraps and dyes the color around the yard and fibers of the materials.  This allows for a smooth, soft feel to the vest.  It will never crack or dry out like the screen printed inks.

We are especially proud of the RS-17.2, taking the best of all vests and building features into this one vest.  Every minute detail has been carefully considered.  For example all of the webbing are tacked down with a zig-zag bar tack, rescue handles wrapped underneath and bar tacked, then finished off with a box stitch. Most of these details are over looked, but not by the Jettribe design team.

Our Jettribe race vests have been proven with top professional racers throughout the world. Some to the features that separate our vest from the rest are: triple rescue handles, back protection compatible, triple 38mm buckles and webbing, interchangeable velcro flag patches and removable heavy duty PWC lanyard D-ring. Plus, the rear race collar attachment.

    It protected me already a couple of times

    Posted by Ildiko Vasari on 3rd Feb 2017

    To every color you can choose the matching color of vest, back protectors and leg protectors. I choose the red and blue, so my vest is also the same. Moreover, this RS 17.2 vest has a chest plate, so it protected me already a couple of times from hitting myself hard with the steering :)
