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 approved to EN393 safety standards.

´ 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! ´

  • 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.

    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.
