The Black Diamond Buoyancy aid from Rooster Sailing. This compact product has been designed for maximum comfort allowing good body movement. Both the shoulder and waist straps are highly adjustable to ensure that there is plenty of room for growth, providing a good fit for different body shapes. Strong Rip Stop fabric has been used for durability with safety reflective strips in key positions.
´ We couldnít have asked for a better product! Whilst primarily design for sailing, these BAís are also perfect for kayaking due to their incredible ease of movement, adjustability, and huge front storage pocket. We particularly loved the attention to detail, with reflective panels and neoprene covers over the adjustment straps on both the menís and womenís versions. Thank you Rooster! ´

i windsurf allot! race and train virtually every weekend, this was the only buoyancy aid i could find that didn't rub on the under side of my chin, was small enough to enable full manoeuvrability and be very light,
i wouldn't buy any other from now on
even in the breeze, all i do is tighten the straps for extra comfort and some body warmth

I recently bought this buoyancy aid and it has been great since day one, fits very well and after I capsized one of my friends asked me whether I was standing up (which I wasn't). To sum up a great all rounder buoyancy aid and if you're in the market for one you should definately buy one.
I have spent a lot of time looking for a; comfortable, compact buoyancy aid that is well fitted so that it doesnít get in the way when I am sailing, with a BIG pocket for snack bars and a small roll of tape or anything else that you want to have quick and easy access to on the water.
The New Rooster Black Diamond Buoyancy Aid offers all of these and I especially like the way that it is very high up on your body so that you still have full manoeuvrability in your waist and lower back. This is far better than the Magic Marine buoyancy aid that I used to have which was far longer so was a bit restrictive for body my body movement and in light winds when I was leaning in or tacking. There is one thing that I think is a bit of a design fault with the New buoyancy aid because when I look round over my shoulder the front reflectors scratch me in the face and to be honest Iím not quite sure why you need reflectors any way. But other than that I am extremely impressed with the New buoyancy aid.
