Treat your hard-working crew to one of the most comfortable lightweight, warm-weather vests on the market when you keep Stearns® I426 SAR Vests on deck.

Each crew member will find these US Coast Guard-approved Type III PFDs equipped with all the features needed for a demanding day on the water. Durable mesh fabric on the back and shoulder allow the breeze to cool wearers on hot days, while the 62 sq. in. of 3M™ Scotchlite™ SOLAS-grade 6755 reflective material on panels adds visibility in the water and on the boat. With added comfort features like a rolled, stand-up collar, three adjustable belts, and soft Aquafoam™ and durable Crosstech® flotation foams, your crew will insist on wearing these vests all day long.
