Rated as the ultimate PFD, the European developed Crewsaver high-performance ErgoFit Lifejacket Collection has been launched in Australia by national distributor Survitec Australia. This new range of 3D moulded lifejackets provides superior quality and fit along with market-leading safety features and performance.
The Ultimate Lifejacket Collection comprises of three purpose designed and manufactured models, the ErgoFit 290 Ocean, ErgoFit 190 Offshore and ErgoFit 190 Coastal.
Representing the culmination of over five decades of development, incorporating the feedback of our valued customers from single-handed round the world sailors to recreational club racers, this new range of 3D moulded lifejackets provides superior quality and fit along with market-leading safety features and performance. The ErgoFit range is testament to the fact that Crewsaver remains ahead of the competition in terms of producing the world's most progressive and reliable safety equipment that is rigorously tested and re-tested to exceed the highest safety standards.
All three ErgoFit lifejackets have twin crutch straps, an integral deck safety harness and a neoprene pocket for stowing a safety knife. The ErgoFit 290 Ocean and ErgoFit 190 Offshore also feature an integrated hood and SOLAS approved light as standard. The market-leading lifejackets are all highly durable with soft comfort mesh on the inside, foam padding including at the back of the neck to prevent rubbing and rapid adjusting buckles for perfect fit.
The entire ErgoFit Collection features an exceptionally well-crafted bladder delivering a faster turn speed, and also ensures that the wearer's airway is lifted further above the water when it matters the most.
The Crewsaver ErgoFit Range
ErgoFit 290 Ocean
The ErgoFit 290 Ocean is for the serious ocean sailor who is exposed to the full fury of the elements and refuses to compromise on safety. With nowhere to hide when a storm rolls in, it is vital to have the best personal safety equipment on the market to stay safe. In extreme conditions with fierce waves breaking over the deck, a lifejacket is an ocean sailor's most important piece of gear, and the ErgoFit 290 is guaranteed to perform.
With full ocean layered clothing creating trapped air pockets, the extra buoyancy of the ErgoFit 290 exceeds Australian standards, ensures a fast turn speed and the airway is kept well clear of the water whatever the conditions (exceeding ISO 12402-2 standards). Features include a pocket on the outer cover for a PLB, like the Kannad Solo, and a Velcro tab on the bladder for attaching the PLB.
With a powerful range of high-end features, plus unbeatable comfort fit, cutting-edge style and class-leading buoyancy, Crewsaver's ErgoFit Ocean 290 is the must-have lifejacket for those who demand the ultimate in performance without compromise.
ErgoFit 190 Offshore
The ErgoFit 190 Offshore is for those who venture offshore, whether under sail or power, and require extra security to stay safe whatever the conditions. Whether racing overnight or in local competition, the ErgoFit 190 Offshore is the perfect choice.
When you lose sight of land you need to be confident that your safety equipment is the best on the market. Rigorous testing and retesting ensures that the ErgoFit 190 exceeds ISO 12402-3 standards, and with 190N of buoyancy it exceeds Australian standards AS4758. A robust three-layer construction makes it extremely durable to cope with challenging conditions and features include a pocket on the outer cover and a Velcro tab on the bladder for a Personal Locator Beacon like the Kannad Solo.
By combining the dynamic 'cutaway' design of the ErgoFit 290 Ocean model with the uprated 190-Newton buoyancy of the ErgoFit 190 Coastal, the ErgoFit 190 Offshore is a lifejacket that you can trust however extreme it gets.
ErgoFit 190 Coastal
For day sailors and anyone who gets out on the water in a motorboat, power boat or RIB, the ErgoFit 190 Coastal offers the security of a top-spec lifejacket at an affordable price.
The Crewsaver ErgoFit 190 Coastal enjoys the same high levels of construction, style and comfort as the ErgoFit 290 Ocean and the ErgoFit 190 Offshore providing the reassurance of a professional quality jacket for recreational boating.
The ErgoFit 190 Coastal provides best-in-class 190N buoyancy, exceeding ISO 12402-3 and AS4758 standards, fast fix buckle adjustability offers exceptional comfort and ease of movement. The ergonomic design of the ErgoFit 190 Coastal is especially comfortable for women's contours, with foam padding for maximum comfort. Other features include a pocket for a PLB like the Kannad Solo and velcro tab for attaching an PLB to the bladder.
