This came through in the latest newsletter from Royal Life Saving WA. Has anyone else seen it? I though it's a fantastic idea and will be getting one. I don't normally wear a life jacket because I don't like the bulk but now I have no excuse. Note that it's now mandatory to wear a life jacket when kiting more than 400m off the West Australian coast.

I'm not associated with the product at all, just thought I'd share this to make everyone safer on the water.

When she tugged it and it just blew

Then she gave it an extra blow and it got harder

She was wet

That's a great idea - I'm sure it will become the norm in the near future as long as they keep the price reasonable.

It looks the goods

Only thing is I am concerned about - the waist level buckle would perhaps give you the sh!ts when wearing a harness. I want one but would not buy until I hear from others who have used it.
