Inflatable vest for buoyancy function, small pack size and light weight. Suitable for paddling on tame waters up to moderate whitewater. From 340g.
Since 2013 in use we are increasingly confindent for the application in moderate (!) whitewater. Especially the rescue option (pulling a swimmer) has been passed our own tests (correct use provided). Buoyancy tested by ISO 12402-9 5.5.9 standard. Features ISO 12402-7 certified safety valves.
Our Anfibio Buoy Boy inflatable vest has been designed specifically for the space- and weight-conscious packrafter. Weighing just 340g (S/M) and rolling up to just a litre in volume, it is one of the most compact buoyancy aids around. The vest features two chambers inflated by easy-to-use spring-loaded mouth valves; which can be used while worn. The inflated chambers reach around the upper back while the lower back is composed sandwich mesh which rests much more comfortably against a typical packraft backrest (a common problem with regular PFDs).
The jacket is fitted with a chunky front zip backed up by a waist clip, and also benefits from a crotch strap which stops the jacket riding up - another a common flaw with regular PFDs unless done up very tightly. The Buoy Boy’s short cut design and baffled air chambers provide excellent freedom of movement and the location of the air chambers (chest and neck) enhances a back position when laying in the water.
