Lifejackets & buoyancy aids

The RFD range of lifejackets and buoyancy aids now includes our all-new F3 models based on fit, form and function. Starting from a blank sheet of paper, our designers have succeeded in redefining both comfort and performance. Better collars, bigger buckles, extra reflective tape and internal webbing are just some of the new features. So why not try one on? Whichever model you choose is sure to keep you in a safe position when you enter the water.
