Baltic has a great new all-round buoyancy aid which they are launching in three colour versions for 2018. Available in red, black and UV Yellow the front zip fastening buoyancy aid called the Aqua Pro, and is comfortable and lightweight. To prevent ride up, the buoyancy aid has a waistband as well as ties both top and bottom to keep it secure for the wearer.
A retrofit crutch strap is available as an accessory which is fitted to the waistband to further prevent ride up.
The Aqua Pro is available in four sizes, from small which is suitable for 30-50 kg through to the XL for 90+ kg.
As with all Baltic buoyancy aids, the Aqua Pro is designed to suit all general boating activities on or near water. All-round buoyancy aids are approved to the 50N standard which means that a buoyancy aid will keep you afloat with a good margin of safety but will not turn you on to the safe back position or support your head. Therefore, the 50N products are only suitable for swimmers and for persons over 25 kg.
In addition to the new Aqua Pro, Baltic have added additional colours to several of their buoyancy aid ranges. The X3, which is popular with paddlers is now available in UV Yellow/ Black combination. The Genua buoyancy aid has the addition of a black version in their colour range whilst the Supersoft II has a Navy Blue version available.
The Aqua Pro will be unveiled on the Baltic Lifejackets stand 12.725 along with all their new 2018 products at the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) 14-16 November.
