Built with a revolutionary low profile chassis, the EP 38 inflatable ocean racing vest is engineered for the elite ocean racer. Membrane Inflatable TechnologyTM inside reduces weight and increases flexibility, and the Hydrostatic Inflator Technology (HITTM) will only inflate when submerged and not in rain, spray, or high humidity.
The low profile chassis is designed for maximum range of motion during high output grinding and sail changes. This PFD integrates seamlessly with the EP 6.5 Ocean Racing outerwear collection for a head-to-toe sailing solution providing a performance edge in the harshest of conditions.
