RS-18P Side Entry Impact Race Vest - Neon Orange

The Jettribe RS-18P Side-Entry Impact Vest is an excellent vest for closed course racing, offshore endurance racing, and naturally for recreation PWC riding as well. The most important feature is the built-in high density, EVA compression molded chest plate.  The plate in the RS-18P is tougher, stronger and offers more protection than ever before to reduce effects from chest impacts. 

While designed and built like a USCG Vest, this competition vest does not carry USCG Certification.  Check with local water safety officials for compliance.

2021 Update - The RS-18 style is being retired. No additional stock will be available. Our new RS-25 Vest style is available.

    Love the vest. It is comfortable and non restrictive. I believe that it is high quality construction and built to last. I like knowing that there are multiple grab handles on extra chest and back plates protection in case of a crash.
    First trip with my new vest was 100 miles from Havre De Grace, MD on the Susquehanna River through the upper Chesapeake Bay through the C n D Canal, down the Delaware River to Lewis, DE by the Atlantic Ocean. I was slightly worried about using it first on a long trip, but it worked great.
