Spinlock Deckvest Vito Harness Lifejacket

Change to Sailing Australia Special Regulations for lifejackets in Catergory 1 & 2 races

  “From 1 July 2023 have a sprayhood. It is recommended that sprayhoods comply with ISO12402-8”


Deckvest VITO is the latest Spinlock inflatable lifejacket harness technology, based on our design work for the Volvo Ocean Race.

All teams were equipped with the same inflatable lifejacket harness developed in collaboration with a core group of Volvo offshore sailors.

Fundamental to the new design was a lifejacket that crews actually wanted to wear more frequently, with developed custom features.

The Deckvest VITO is a 170N lifejacket with an integrated Deck safety Harness.  All VITO Deckvests are built with the unique Spinlock Harness Release System is a unique system that ensures a simple release from a safety line, even when fully loaded. It is easily accessible with either hand, but significantly reduces the risk of an accidental snag or release.
