Designed to meet the latest SIO12402/5 standards the Wavehopper inflatable waistcoat is a must have item for anyone looking at going afloat or wading. 2 years of extensive development and testing have gone into creating this functional inflatable fishing vest.

When you first put the Wavehopper vest on you will hardly notice any difference to a normal fly fishing waistcoat, plenty of pockets for all the essential items, D rings and extremely comfortable, it’s only when the unthinkable happens and you find yourself in the water that the ingenious design of the Wavehopper really comes into play.

If you’re wearing the automatic waistcoat within seconds of being submersed the automatic arming system activates the 120 NEWTON bladder that is concealed within the waistcoat. With the manual waistcoat a quick pull of the arming cord fires the arming system.

Every year we hear reports of anglers drowning -DON'T BECOME ONE OF THESE STATISTICS! Note: The Wavehopper Inflatable Fly Vest Lifejacket MUST be worn outside all other garments and is tailored this way; failure to do this may result in injury when activated.

Sizes Available: S, M, L, XL, XXL

Code:
Automatic Vest: F-WAVEHV-A-(+Size)
Manual Vest: F-WAVEHV-M-(+Size)
Replacement Re-arming kit: F-WAVEHV-CYL
Iain Barr says:

"I would never consider going afloat without my Wavehopper vest, it just isn’t worth the risk"

I thought this was pretty poor due to the unexpected weight of the vest. No hidden zingers. The two main pockets are flimsy and and the ones below them are not much better.This is disappointing to hear. I can see that you are a very good customer of ours so please get in touch if you would like to exchange this item to an alternative product.

All the best

Good solid quality. I was little surprised by the extra weight but I suppose to be expected considering the additional components - inflation mechanism and bladder.
I've not had to test as yet but I hope I never have too :)

1st class and at a good priceThe majority of our orders are despatched by DX express courier service who do not deliver to Northern Ireland. We have to use alternative delivery services for your area which sadly charge us more and these charges have to be passed on.

Haven't tried it yet but have transferred all of my equipment to the vest & find it comfortable to wear.It has so many"pockets"Fishtec" could hold a competition to find out how many there are.The only downside is that the vest could do with a few securing points for scissors etc....Thank you for this informative and positive feedback. Much appreciated.

Seems really good, but since it's main use is for boat fishing a version with fewer pockets etc. would be good. No Comment
