What if a T-shirt is all you need?

Res-T allows you to do what you love without the need for uncomfortable and bulky flotation devices. Our T-shirt is an ISO 50N certified buoyancy aid that inflates immediately using a compressed air cartridge, or with a mouthpiece.

You don’t have have to choose between performance, looks or safety – this rescue T-shirt combines all 3.

After using a cartridge, just replace it with a new one and you’re ready for your next adventure. Run out of cartridges and you can always inflate by using the mouthpiece.
