Jobe Progress Neo Vest Men 2013
The Progress Neo Vest is the vest you need to feel safe and confident out on the waves. It is perfect for the entry level water sports fan that wants to feel secure, as well as for the experienced rider which rips in challenging waves. The vest is perfect for kiteboarding, wakeboarding, windsurfing and any other related sports.
The vest is built using Neo fabric. Neo Fabric is in fact very soft neoprene which assures maximum comfort. PVC foam is used to assure excellent impact protection. The vest is able to absorb impacts and diffuse the shocks in order to keep the rider safe. The PVC foam also provides optimal buoyancy. The vest is 50N ISO approved, which means that it can be used as floating device.
Jobe has implemented the WDS – Water Draining System in the design of the vest. This Water Draining System makes sure the vest drains all the water and dries faster. It also features a D-ring attachment for emergency cord. The vest not only offers a high level of protection and floatation, but it is also very comfortable. It accommodated the natural shape of the body and does not restrict the rider’s freedom of movement.
It is available in S, M, L, XL, XXL and XXXL sizes.
