Crewsaver PFDs Launched in Australia

The Crewsaver brand of jackets and PFDs is widely acknowledged as a world leading brand in terms of style and performance.  The Survitec Group (RFD Australia Pty Ltd) has recently been appointed the Australian distributor for Crewsaver.

The Crewfit 190N is the ultimate recreational sports lifejacket, that not only provides unrivalled performance but is also stylish, lightweight, robust, and fits like a second skin. And being rated to 190 Newton it carries more buoyancy than the normal 150N rated PFDs in this category.

The Crewfit 290N has enhanced flotation capability for use in the most demanding environments when a wearer is loaded with foul weather gear and equipment.  Both the Crewfit 190N and Crewfit 290N exceed the requirements of the International Standard, ISO 12402.  Both models are available as manual inflating or auto inflating. 

The Crewfit PFDs are designed and manufactured in the UK.   These are superior quality products which raises the bar in terms of safety, performance, durability, style and comfort.

This is the ultimate sports lifejacket.

Thanks to its attractive, ergonomic features, wearing a lifejacket has never been so appealing.  The 3-D tailoring and fully adjustable fine-tune waistbelt, means the fit of the jacket follows the body’s natural contours, which, combined with the integrated mesh-panelled, padded back provides ultimate comfort.

As well as the simple, quick, dual side adjusters, the jacket is held in place by quality stainless steel buckles – on harness versions – and dual, fully adjustable, high strength crutch straps come as standard on all models.

Righting performance has been optimised to ensure anyone ending up face down in the water is quickly turned up the right way. The curved, outer shaping and neck design, also helps lift the head further from the water, and angle it correctly.
