The Deckvest VITO is the latest Spinlock inflatable lifejacket harness technology, it is based on the design work from the custom product made for the sailors in 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.

Harness Release System (HRS)
- The Deckvest VITO is a 170N lifejacket with integrated Deck safety Harness.
- All VITO Deckvests are built to allow them to be upgraded with the unique Spinlock Harness Release System (HRS). This revolutionary system, evolved directly from the development work with the Volvo Ocean Race, is in the final stage of approval testing and will be launched early 2019.
- HRS 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.
