Buoyancy aid / impact vest for waist harness

Postby ROLAVI » Wed Nov 02, 2016 2:16 pm

I use a ride engine waist harness with slider tope for foiling and I am looking for a better vest.

I have the liquid force emerald and don't like it. It is too bulky and the big Velcro strap comes undone in big crashes.

I have an Agenda surf wake vest I like better for it bring slim and just the right floatation and protection but it's not ideal either. Doesn't fit above harness.

I noticed this online and thought it would be ideal without the airtank system. Henry Lloyd Spinlock bar t2.

Any suggestions?

When I ride with one I use the Brunotti Neo Impact Vest works great with my Elite series Engine. ... est#8B2332

I am using the ION Vector in combination with a Da Kine waist harness. Stays in place very well.

I bought a Mystic with D30 material to learn to foil. Still at it...but it is really comfy and adds warmth so I even use it now on wave board. Using RE harness with rope.
