Well spoken Mike. I cant understand why people get so worked up about it.
I know that they ship all over europe. I would just contact them and find out about shipping to the us.

people chime in when someone buys safety equipment for instance someone wants to know where to buy a board leash.

13 yrs of using my various PFD ,it has saved my life countless of times
It doesn't matter what it's called , what brand it is , just use one!
My favorite has been the Naish Defender vest one piece. I have had 3
Unfortunately they don't make them anymore. First thing I do when I get one is beef up the flotation, easy to do.

may be because calling it "safety flotation device" would be at least incorrect.
but, 1968, if you are affiliated to this product it would be lying to the customer.
they even don't call it "safety flotation device" on their website. and for the good reason - because it is not.
for that bladder to be "safety flotation device" it needs to pass lots of rigorous tests and get certified by some official organization.

for me it is more like "potentially floating device" with single purpose: making money for its creators.

and how does it work? well, you fell for the advertizing and bought one of these toys for 89€. then you naturally would like to test it and you use couple of spare cylinders (6€ piece). then, of course time after time you are obliged to show off in front of your friends and waste more and more spare cylinders. and you never know will the next cylinder blows up that bladder or not.

only positive thing about this thing is that it probably makes your cold dead body more visible in the water for the rescuers...

Pool boy. You don't have to be a pro to realize that this is a goofy device. Btw I said 'kooks' and didn't address you specifically. Your post just happened to be the last one in the thread. Sorry you took such offense and had to send a threatening pm but hey if the shoe fits.......

why no response?
but since then, did you noticed that real safety inflatable vest has two CO2 canisters, (i'm just guessing for real safety)

What's wrong with just wearing a PFD? Are we concerned about safety, or our turn down the catwalk?
