Rooster Side Zip 50N Buoyancy Aid


This Rooster Size Zip Buoyancy Aid is fully approved and certified CE12402-5, has plenty of features and fit adjustments. Rooster have used a thinner foam throughout to reduce bulk, especially on the back panel (to limit catching your back on the boom). The front panel is segmented into 3 sections for improved fit and comfort around the natural 3d curvature of the body.

This buoyancy aid has plenty of pocket storage, featuring a large asymmetric chest pocket with zip entry easily accessible with your right hand – perfect for grabbing something last minute when starting on starboard tack when the tiller is in your left hand! There are also 2 small elasticated pockets on the sides for easy to grab items.

A secret pocket is hidden on the back panel with a Velcro closure, that can allow for heat transferred team branding without affecting the main buoyancy aid. You could also add a water bladder in this pocket for ultimate adventures – great for on your paddleboard!
