Tribord produce Izeber Gilet Sailing Jacket

Izeber Jacket

Izeber Jacket

Tribord have produced another Innovative Product this year, which goes by the name Izeber Jacket.

It is designed to worn like a normal Gilet but has the material inside to act as a life jacket if falling into water. It it reversible to a flourescent side with reflective strips to be worn in the evening.

The perfect product for sailing, boating, kayaking, canoeing or any water related sports helping you to stay safe but in style.

If you enjoy inshore sailing, this versatile and flexible jacket offers protection from drowning, cold and wind. This jacket, the first textile product to have won at the Oxylane Innovation Awards, lets you float according to the 50N standard whilst keeping the comfort and thermal insulation of a classic jacket.

  • WindproofingThe vest’s construction cuts the windchill effect.
  • Water repellenceSpecially treated so water slides off the fabric’s surface
  • Guarantee : 2 Years

More Detail:

Buoyancy: This jacket was designed in accordance with EN ISO 12402-5. It therefore has the same characteristics as a buoyancy aid with a performance level of 50 Newtons. Like all buoyancy aids, users need to swim or stabilise themselves to stay in a position with their head out of the water.

Lining of the jacket: The lining which ensures the buoyancy of the jacket is made of polyethylene. The component blend of flakes and micro beads provides excellent thermal protection without impairing its comfort and flexibility. The thermal protection was measured at 2.6 Clo.

Water repellent component: The water repellency of your Izeber buoyant jacket is obtained by applying a treatment to its outer surface. This treatment causes water to slide over the surface without soaking in. This prevents the component from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, breathable, and warm. This treatment must be renewed throughout the garment’s lifetime. Water-repellent treatment products are available in our stores.

How important is windproofing? Protection from the wind is critical, as wind can chill the body significantly whether you are active or at rest. According to the “wind chill” model, which measures how the air temperature feels when factoring in the wind and cold: at a temperature of 5°C combined with winds of 30 km/h, the temperature felt will be 0°C. If the air temperature is 0°C and wind speed is 40 km/h, the temperature felt will be -7°C. Your Izeber buoyant jacket counters the wind chill effect.

What is the Clo index? The clo is the scale that measures the thermal resistance of your Izeber buoyant jacket. During the test, components in your technical garment are exposed to temperatures close to body temperatures, while the exterior temperature remains controlled. The clo index explains the ability of your Izeber buoyant jacket to retain your body heat inside the garment. The higher the clo index, the better the technical component will preserve the heat emitted by your body.
