The AXIS WAIST BELT 100 MK2 inflatable PFD is designed to be worn around the waist for easy movement while boating/fishing. The jacket is only a PFD if the wearer is wearing the jacket.
There is a new Australian Standard for the design of PFDs. The National Marine Safety Committee has agreed to introduce the new Australian Standard, AS 4758 into recreational boat safety equipment regulations nationally by 1 July 2010.
This waist belt 100N Manual inflatable jacket is a compact inflatable jacket designed to be worn around the waist for each movement whilst boating or fishing - ideal for maximum freedom of movement and wearer comfort.
