SOSpenders Children's
Inflatable Life Vest


The ONLY Inflatable Personal Flotation Device (PFD) for Children Approved by the U.S. Coast Guard.

These "hybrid" life jackets are two separate floatation systems in one. Their built-in foam provides calm water flotation with:
  • Automatic Inflation: If your child goes overboard the CO2 will inflate the PFDs bladder system and turn the child face upward (this can also be Manually deployed).
  • Manual Inflation: This provides the same CO2 inflation feature as the Auto, but the rip cord must be pulled to inflate. Great for all water sports.
  • Additional safety features like reflective tape, crotch strap, whistle and an oral inflation tube are standard.


    Hybrid's lifejackets are no longer available
    Re-arming kits are still available.
