For cruising, 100 Newton lifejackets appear to us as the minimal "reasonable" personal safety equipment.<br>It is only from the 100 Newton category onwards that a lifejacket is fitted with signalling equipment and that it has a self-righting ability (i.e. it is designed to turn most wearers face up, even unconscious). This is also the reason why children’s lifejackets (wearer 30 kg max.) exist only as from the 100 Newton category.

Plastimo tips & tricks

To help understand the lifejacket categories

Lifejackets and buoyancy aids used in recreational or professional activities must comply with the specifications of the European Directive 89/686/CE on Personal Protective Equipment.
The CE mark of approval must be printed on the garment's label and testifies that the lifejacket complies with the European Directive. Lifejackets are ranked in 4 categories according to their use, performance ans buoyancy level.
