Baltic Lifejackets Launch New Products at METS 2021

Baltic Lifejackets will be at the Marine Equipment Trade Show (METS) and like most exhibitors they are in a new location (stand 05.701) and will be bringing new products to the market that have been developed and introduced over the last 18 months.

“The marine industry is vast,” comments Johan Lövqvist CEO of Baltic Safety Products AB. “We have spent our time in ‘lockdown’ reviewing the whole Baltic offering and the new products across the whole range of watersports show the diversity out there and the requirements of our customers. So far they have been well received and we are looking forward to introducing them at METS.”

Coming to the market in 2022 for multi-sport activities.

The Slim Pro and Slim Reflective

These two buoyancy aids have a very slim fit thanks to the careful distribution of the compact buoyancy material. The back plate is ergonomically designed, and the adjustable sides are made of soft neoprene. The entire vest is lined with mesh for extra comfort and breathability. The Slim Reflective is for those looking for the highest possible visibility and comes with a retro-reflective cover.

Size: Small 30 -50 kg, Medium 50 – 70 kg, Large 70 – 90 kg, X Large 90+ kg
Colours: Pro – black and white. Reflective – silver
RRP: £60.00 Slim Pro and £70.00 Slim Reflective

GT Retro

This classic buoyancy aid has been updated with a new pocket and is now available in new retro colours.

The GT Retro comes with neoprene on shoulders and a waistband provides a soft and flexible life jacket that is suitable for all types of boating activities.

This is a comfortable all-round buoyancy aid with vertical splits in the buoyancy material for great movement and is also available in small size increments for optimum fit.

Size: X-Small 30 – 40kg, Small 40 -50 kg, Medium 50 – 70 kg, Medium-Large 70 – 80 kg, Large 80 – 90 kg, X-Large 90+ kg
Colours: white/blue/orange and blue/orange/white

Meet the X4, developed together with experts in kayaking. It is a flexible model due to its evenly distributed buoyancy and soft material. The adjustable shoulders and sides make this vest a good fit and barely noticeable during use. Available in Black.
Size: Small 30 -50 kg, Medium 50 – 70 kg, Large 70 – 90 kg, X Large 90+ kg
RRP £100.00

Those paddling for exploration, adventure, work or simply to have some time out need freedom of movement. It’s important that the Personal Flotation Device (PFD) is non-restrictive, light to wear, comfortable and that it doesn’t sit heavy on the wearer’s shoulders. These are all elements paddle sport enthusiasts can expect as standard from a Baltic buoyancy aid. In addition to these comfort features, visibility is also key given the close proximity to the water. All Baltic PFDs have EN/ISO certification and are rated to 50N as a minimum.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding – SUP Elite, SUP Pro and SUP Rental

Baltic introduces a series of life jackets designed for Stand Up Paddleboarding, developed in collaboration with instructors and professional designers with extensive experience in the sport. The vests are designed to provide maximum mobility for the arms and make it easy to get up on the board from the water.

The SUP Elite/PRO/Rental are a range in themselves offering good mobility and comfort both on the board and in the water. Available in a range of colours and reflective patches to increase visibility. These buoyancy aids start from £70 depending on the model, and are available in Small 30+ kg, Medium 50+ kg and Large 70+ kg.

In addition to the above-mentioned new products coming to the market in 2022, METS offers the perfect platform to introduce the Baltic products launched earlier this year; the Athena ladies lifejacket, the Extreme dinghy sailing buoyancy aid, the new child’s Bamse lifejacket, the new flotation clothing such as the Hamble and also the new technical apparel including top, mid and base layers, which have been available throughout 2021.

“As a company, we are love all things connected to water,” commented Ian Clark Head of Business at Baltic Safety Products. “Baltic is dedicated to making aquatic life safer, and these new products look to make your time on the water even more fun and comfortable.” The extensive range of Baltic Lifejackets, flotation clothing and technical clothing with be available to view at METS on stand 05.701 from 16th to 18th November 2021.
