Spinlock Deckvest Vito with Hammar firing system.
Deckvest VITO is the latest Spinlock inflatable lifejacket harness technology, based on Spinlock’s design work for the Volvo Ocean Race.
All teams were equipped with the same inflatable lifejacket harness developed in collaboration with a core group of Volvo offshore sailors.
Fundamental to the new design was a lifejacket that crews actually wanted to wear.
The Spinlock HRS (Harness Release System) developed for the Volvo Ocean Race and now fitted to VITO lifejacket harness is a discreet but easy to locate two-stage release handle which with a short pull opens the soft loop harness connection.
As well as the focus on user simplicity the HRS system is a surprisingly detailed piece of design engineering combining rotating metal parts in a moulded locking system interacting with a fibre loop system.
Deckvest VITO is approved to the following international standards:
• CE Approved
• ISO 12402-3 Lifejacket (170N/275N)
• ISO 12401 Deck Harness
• Pylon Light ISO 12402-8
