The super comfortable, compact design of the Rooster® Diamond Overhead Buoyancy Aid features a high cut waist to allow unrestricted movement and easy access to a trapeze hook. The highly adjustable shoulder and waist straps ensures a great fit for different body shapes, while the recessed, neoprene-covered buckles removes the risk of snagging on ropes and rigging. Strong, rip-stop fabric ensures longevity and provides greater wear resistance with reflective panels for improved visibility. The front pocket is large enough to keep a spare hat, safety knife, tape and snacks, with an integral hook and mesh pocket for your keys, shackles and other spares. The Rooster® 50N Diamond Buoyancy Aid is rated ISO CE12402-5.

´ We couldn’t have asked for a better product! Whilst primarily design for sailing, these BA’s 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 men’s and women’s versions. Thank you Rooster! ´

  • CD Boyle, Oxford, 31 August 2020
    Love this buoyancy aid, fits great for dinghy sailing and looks smart. (And most importantly, keeps me afloat!)
  • Euan Ferguson, Glasgow, 16 June 2020
    Lovely neat boayancy aid very comfy and most of the time forget I'm wearing it. Brilliant piece of kit !
  • Sam Mabey, Cowes, 15 March 2020
    Use this for everything I do that requires a BA. Love the style and colours nice and low profile.
  • james hammett, exeter, 28 November 2019
    Nice and tight fit and haven't used the buoyancy much but well made and does the job.
  • Bess, Edinburgh, 01 November 2019
    Good buoyancy aid which allows good movement. Handy pocket on the front
  • Mike Croker, Steyning, 17 September 2019
    Asked by my crew, after 3hrs on the water, what I thought of my new buoyancy aid, I realised that I hadn't noticed it all during the previous 2 hrs racing. Job Done!
  • Clive Hindley, Christchurch, 06 September 2019
    The DIAMOND OVERHEAD BUOYANCY AID 50N I bought a Grey one in the summer and it has been an excellent buy. I liked the Grey colour which was on offer, making an even better deal. The front pocket is a good size and has an inner pocket for a waterproof notepad and other items for instructor purposes. The clip hook is very useful for knife/keys… I was so impressed with the PFD that I bought another one for my son!
    The only minor negative is that, wearing glasses, I have to remove them when donning/removing PFD overhead - a minor issue with such a good item otherwise..
  • Ethan, Devon , 05 September 2019
    Amazing, fits great and doesn’t restrict movement. Recommend this to anyone
  • Deniz Derin Bınaroğlu, Istanbul, 05 September 2019
    I've been using a Rooster buoyancy aid for over 5 years and I just got a new one now. Super durable and looks amazingly good. It covers your chest area well and fitting is also nice and neat. For laser sailors it is important to fit well, we don't want something baggy on us and this in my opinion the best fit and the best buoyancy aid. :))
  • Mary Kennedy, St Andrews, 26 August 2019
    The perfect buoyancy aid for dinghy sailing, doesn't get in the way at all. The pocket has plenty space for all the sailing essentials. Would definitely recommend!
  • Sophie Taylor, Chichester, 27 March 2019
    Really comfortable and doesn’t restrict movement - which is great for laser sailing!
    Good sized pocket for snacks and has a handy clip where I can put the changing room keys! I’d definitely recommend this.
  • Iona Willows, Reading, 19 July 2018
    I love this, as it is very comfortable to wear for hours on end during regattas, and the straps are hidden allowing nothing to get caught when tacking. Large pocket very useful for snacks too!
  • Lydia Barber, Stoke on Trent, 17 July 2018
    First one I ordered the wrong size, got it exchanged in no time, the one i have now is perfect. Keeps me afloat. Looks great, the diamond patten is simple yet classy. The reflective parts are good to, useful for safety. Easy to get on and off, and no zips in the way, its compact and never gets caught on the boat. Would definitely recommend.
  • Annie Hammett, Esher, 21 May 2018
    Fantastic prize from the Worlds. Great fit and front pocket handy for snacks.
  • Alex, Cowes, 13 April 2018
    Great fit, nicely adjustable and a good size pocket. A definite upgrade from my old bouyancy aid!
  • Millie Irish, Rugby , 24 June 2017

  • Ryan, Auckland, 28 April 2017

  • Ivan Holjar, Southend on Sea, 28 April 2017

  • George Finch, Mendlesham, Suffolk, 28 April 2017
    Perfect bouyancy Aid, the most comfy BA I've owned. The pocket is a great size, allowing for everything you need to take out on the water for a day of racing!
  • James Dowrick , Cornwall, 24 October 2016
    A sleek looking buoyancy aid which is both comfortable and practical. The large pocket is great for keeping a snack in and the high cut gives you unrestricted movement. The of the best I've owned. Love the colour choices too.
  • Jack, Whiteley, 18 October 2016
    Very good fit and adjustable on the sides. It doesn't get in your way when you are in the boat or hiking out! You don't notice you are wearing it and keeps you safe.
