The best just got better, new Crewsaver ErgoFit+ lifejacket to be revealed at METSTRADE 2018

Proudly obsessive about your safety and survival - Crewsaver continues to lead the way in designing and manufacturing safety and performance equipment with the launch of the new ErgoFit+ lifejacket. Inspired by Crewsaver's product developments with the renowned French search and rescue (SAR) organisation, Les Sauveteurs en Mer. The ErgoFit+ lifejacket will arrive in March 2019 and is the result of over 60 years of pioneering lifejacket development.

A sneak peek at the lifejacket reveals the ErgoFit+ includes a spray hood design that almost completely seals off the water from the face. This is achieved through improved bladder and spray-hood compatibility, and a trail blazing design, allowing the hood to block off water ingress. The hood itself is made from a double-hooped construction which is self-supporting and creates a spacious cavity above the wearer's face. The design not only reduces the risk of water inhalation but also makes the time under the hood more comfortable and less claustrophobic.

Head of Crewsaver's design department, Nigel Parkes comments – "It has been proven that the addition of a spray hood inside a lifejacket can significantly enhance the wearer's safety. It increases visibility and protects the airway, reducing the risk of secondary drowning which can result from water inhalation. It is our duty to continuously look at new ways we can improve the design of our lifejackets to ensure our users are getting the very best protection to stay #LifejacketSafe."

In addition to the next generation spray hood, the ErgoFit+ includes a wealth of marine industry firsts which will be revealed in full at METSTRADE.

Plus, Crewsaver is excited to announce a new partnership and technical collaboration at the show, further elevating lifejacket protection technologies and taking man overboard protection to the next level.
