The new generation E50 buoyancy aid from Burke Marine
Fri, 30 Nov 2012
A touch of European sophistication has graced Australian waters this summer with Burke Marine’s release of the new generation E50, a European-style, side-entry buoyancy aid. This Level 50 buoyancy aid has been given a dynamic new look with jet black/carbon panelling and a spacious, Velcro-secured front pocket.
Designed to maximise mobility by minimising its footprint, the high-fitting E50 is packed with supple PVC Nitrile foam and fitted with an elasticised waist and shoulders, allowing the buoyancy aid to comfortably hug the body. This ergonomic design makes the E50 ideal for hiking and trapezing, while kayakers should find the extra room will encourage a more seamless stroke.
