Crewsaver ErgoFit+ Lifejacket

Crewsaver’s much anticipated ErgoFit+ lifejacket has hit the shelves of retailers worldwide. The ErgoFit+ is the result of over 60 years of pioneering lifejacket development. Featuring industry-first progressions, this lifejacket offers the next level in man overboard protection – equipping you with the very best to ensure your safety is taken care of.

Nigel Parkes, Crewsaver’s Head of Design, comments: “Collaboration has and will always be key to ensure the evolution of our lifejacket designs. As part of Survitec, the Crewsaver design team have developed lifejackets for a wide range of sectors outside of the leisure industry. The ErgoFit+ is a true reflection of this, uniting lifesaving and comfort features developed as part of our projects with aviation authorities, search and rescue organisations, elite ocean racers and­—of course—feedback from the everyday boater heading out for a day on the water.”

Matt Bridge, Crewsaver’s Commercial Director, adds: “It’s important to do what makes you proud. At Crewsaver we are committed to your safety; we continually strive to design and provide the very best in lifejacket technology. Whether you’re an experienced ocean sailor or heading out on your first boating experience, we want to offer you the very best in man overboard protection. After all, you never plan on falling in!”
