Life Jackets with the perfect fit

23 june 2021
Jobe watersports life vests and buoyancy aid vests have a better fit than ever: Jobe’s Perfect Fit. The fit of every Jobe vest is based on scientific research*, where people of all sizes and ages were measured and weighted to determine the optimal size for every body type. We took these measures to extend our size range. Every vest is then tested by an official certified institution to make sure it meets the highest quality, comfort and safety standards.

Women's life vests

This is where our Perfect Fit shines. Extra sizes in our women vest size range are added after scientific research determined new sizes to go with each female body type. This resulted in smaller steps between every size. Now curvy body types can find their perfect match, but their flatter and thinner counterparts can also find a perfect vest. Shop women’s vests.

Foam Thickness

We took on the big challenge to find the optimal thickness of foam in every vest size. This was a constant trade-off between comfort and buoyancy. More buoyancy means more foam, but also less comfort. Because large sized vests need to carry more body weight than small sizes, the official ISO safety standard suggests different levels of foam to be included in different sized vests. We didn’t just use the same level of foam thickness that’s found in large sized vests also in small sizes.

Unique ISO safety certificate

Now that each vest size got different levels of foam thickness, we had to be 100% sure this matched the required level of buoyancy of the official ISO standards. Therefore every Jobe vest got tested again by an official certification institution. Every vest successfully passed the test, which is why we got rewarded with an unique Jobe-exclusive ISO safety certificate.
