"8.28", the Approved Space-Saving Life Jackets
What you see in the photo above is the Space-Saving Life Jacket "8.28" by Certec, the definitive solution to the bulky traditional law jackets: the size of this small bag is 27 X 9 cm!!!
In practice, a single traditional 150 Nt jacket occupies the same volume as SIX "8.28" space-saving jackets
We all know how problematic it is always, even on the biggest yachts, to stow the mandatory life jackets and how important it is to keep them close at hand.
Our “8.28” Space-Saving Life Jackets are so small that they can all be stowed in a small locker or drawer, or distributed in the cabins without taking up precious clothing space.
They will therefore always be easily accessible and usable, because it is possible to store them in the real areas of use of the boat, leaving room for other things as well.

Again unlike the traditional ones which, once worn, prevent movement, our "8.28" Life Jackets are worn and, being deflated, do not cause any discomfort.
We can therefore dress them in a precautionary manner even if engaged in maneuvers on board, and therefore operate without hindrance.
Instead, do we want to secure a crew member who does not have to maneuver? It will be sufficient to inflate the wind jacket using the special straw valve: after use it deflates and stores it in its small bag.
Another exclusive feature of the “8.28” Space Saving Life Jacket is that the annual check can be performed directly by you (owner or skipper), simply by following the instructions included. You open it, take out the can, place it on a scale and weigh it: change it only if it is lighter than what is indicated on it.
Finally, the check on the jacket itself is self-certified.
