Jetpilot Wakeboard AccessoriesThe A-10 competition vest from Jetpilot has long been the industry standard as the most comfortable, and stylish, wakeboard vest. Now, with their new Raven model, Jetpilot aims to shrink the gap between bulky USCG vests and their non-legal competition brethren. Similar in design, the Raven will feature a new type of closed cell foam, which offers more buoyancy from less volume. This new foam is the biggest advancement in the design of the new vest, and has allowed Jetpilot to remove most of the bulk associated with a US Coast Guard approved life jacket.

The Raven also features two internal straps, a la the A-10 or Falcon’s single closure method. Jetpilot’s patent pending Side-Entry technology is also on-board, which should make for a comfortable and secure combination. A special nylon inner liner that sheds water means this new vest stays relatively dry throughout the day. Everyone hates to put on a wet cold jacket and this new technology, which will make its way through the rest of the Jetpilot line, which help to eliminate that experience.

If the style and fit of the A-10 wakeboard vest has appealed to you, but Coast Guard Approval is a requirement, check out the Jetpilot Raven vest, dropping this spring.
