Peace Of Mind For You And Loved Ones
Staying safe on the water is the number one priority for any watersports participant and paddleboarding is no different. Combined with an increasing number of events making it mandatory to wear a PFD we wanted to offer something that didnt get in the way whilst paddling but ensured you can stay safe in the unlikely event you get into trouble.
To ensure we produced the best product possible, we have teamed up with lifejacket experts Baltic to create a waist belt PFD which is perfect for stand up paddleboarding. The PFD sits comfortably around your waist and conceals the ISO Certified (EN ISO 12402-5 / 12402-6) 50 N bladder. To deploy should you require it, simply pull the inflatable bladder out of the pocket, place over your head and inflate by pulling the inflation cord, with no adjustments required. Once deployed, the PFD can be re-armed by replacing the gas cylinder with another 16g CO2 cylinder, meaning it can be used multiple times.
A large water resistant storage pocket at the front is perfect for essential items and D-ring clip points allow for attaching other items if needed.
Suitable for people 40-130kgs

Looks great. Can see how it will work really well if needed. Nicely made. But - of course - not tested in practice and not planning to: but great to have the peace of mind when paddling open sea and other more demanding water.
Looks great and in super bright colours. Hope I never need to use it, but it's good to know you have it when out on the water.
Good quality, looks and feel strong and secure
This is a rebrand of the Baltic softbag I think? I could be wrong. Yet it’s cheaper than the Baltic by a bit. It is well made and a great safety aid. I will get a few more for the family just as a swimming accessory never mind SUP. it is invaluable.
I don't know about you but wearing a big PFD over your clothes whisky paddling is a real pain although , for safety , necessary Then came the waist bag PFD and definatly game changing It's like wearing a bumbag so a pocket for your keys phone etc with an aeroplane life jacket style in the other half No zip just Velcro to open the top pull out pop over your head and inflate. Simple as that Gas cartridges easily replaced and the jacket is easy to roll back down, once deflated and rearmed , back into its pocket Great colourways to match your board
My friend and I bought a pair of these recently as we're embarking on longer, deeper journeys and needed that peace of mind if anything went awry. When they arrived it was shocked at how small and unassuming they are, and incredibly light! The strap adjusts a long way to ensure it's comfortable and the storage compartment is perfect for things like car keys. Definitely feel more at ease venturing out with this, and lastly and the most important bit... it looks really cool!
Loving the Airbelt PDF. It hives peace of mind and is comfortable at the same time. I'm finding it very convenient to pack along wherever I'm headed and it allows for an unrestricted paddling experience. Thanks.
I just received the PFD, with couple of additional items :), for fathers day (which is also my birthday). At first glance, just by looking and touching at the materials you can see that everything is made of premium quality components. For those how doesn't really see the advantage over a traditional PFD jacket, you really need to test it. SUP is everything about freedom, joy and comfort, and not having to wear a bulky cumbersome PFD jacket was such a pleasure. All movements are now easily and freely achieved. The belt is very comfortable and also comes with protection for your skin under the buckle. Everything is well designed. Also it is so lightweight that you don't feel and care about it at all. You'll even omit to remove it after your ride because you'll forget it. Another must have in your SUP gears.
I've bought it for my girlfriend to feel save on SUP. so we can explore more lakes.
For me, paddling, like my running, is about enjoying the great outdoors and feeling free whilst being active. When I paddle wearing my conventional buoyancy aid it can often feel a little cumbersome & so I really love the new Red Original Air-Belt. You hardly notice it's there but it's nice to know that in an emergency you have it with you. This PFD ticks the safety box without interfering with that feeling of freedom you get out on the water. I don't paddle without it now.
