We love these as a summer alternative to a buoyancy aid for our social paddles. They keep you looking cool on the water but come with a warning that they are not buoyancy aids. They fit the bill for the byelaws of Loch Lomond too.
Designed for watersports, Spinlock's Alto Belt Pack is a lightweight, compact, inflatable flotation device worn around the waist. When operated, an inflatable tube is released from the waist pack which then supports the user under the arms and around the chest.
The belt pack feels invisible when worn thanks to its size, yet is certified as a 50N buoyancy aid.
Manually operated 16g CO2 cylinder.
Adjustable for a close, simple fit.
Can be worn on front or back.
This is not a life jacket - it provides limited protection against drowning.
Approved for users aged 16+ weighing over 40kg.
