It's great flexibility was no doubt one of the reasons that Spinlock's new Deckvest LITE became a winner in this year's DAME Design Awards recently announced in Amsterdam.

This is not a life jacket for crossing oceans. But it is the only expert-quality lifejacket especially made for RIBs, inshore and inland sailing, as well as motor boating and other water activities.
The new Deckvest LITE is a vibrantly fresh, ultra-light new solution for the faster day-sailing applications where lightness and agility really matter, and where features like a built-in harness, emergency light and sprayhood are optional-or never required.
The Deckvest LITE lifejacket shares the same good fit, fast adjustment and distinctive lean profile as its sister Deckvest lifejacket harness.
Its striking colours, unique tapering shape and anti-snag detailing create a clean and excitingly-different look.
There's a good back-up when you buy this vest. It comes with Spinlock Through-Life Support (TLS), the free online support service that Spinlock offer, uniquely, to every Deckvest owner.
But it won't be out for Christmas. Deckvest LITE will be available January 2012. Technical Summary:
*170N Buoyancy with UML Automatic Inflation
*Ultra-light, low-profile shape
*Crotch strap stowage
