The Mystic Star Impact Vest has been designed offering both impact protection, and floatation. It's super comfortable to wear, fits like a glove, and most importantly, it will protect you when you need it. While it's not considered a life jacket, it offers plenty floatation to assist you when you need it. Extra cord on the bottom of the vest will help with tightening the vest further for reduced ride up. The Mystic Star Impact Vest has been designed to work with both WAIST and SEAT harnesses. It can also work as a wakeboarding vest for the kiters who hit the water behind a kite or handle.
