Life jackets - water sports accessories for emergencies
In addition to classic life jackets, as worn by adults and children in sailing sports, the label also carries real life jackets. That these are not the same but two different products is illuminated by a look at the details.
Lifejackets ensure that the period of drifting in the water is extended and that forces can be saved in the process. They merely support the floating process. The person floating in the water must be able to position the head independently so that it is above water. This is different with life jackets.
Life jackets ensure that a person floating in the water who has passed out is turned to the supine position. This allows the airways to be kept clear of the water, which is a life-saving feature. As a rule, life jackets have a flat design and wrap around the upper body in a horseshoe shape. A collar provides extra comfort.
Oil gear - wind- and weatherproof sailing clothing
Marinepool is also a leading manufacturer of oilskins. This is outerwear that protects against wet, wind and therefore cold - even in extreme conditions. The term oilskin results from the traditional materials that were used for sailing clothing until the 19th century. While sailcloth was once finished with tar, sailors eventually switched to linseed oil. This impregnated the linen fabric before rubber replaced the vegetable oil. Today's oilcloth is PVC-coated, which is the basis for the technologically first-class features of Marinepool sailwear. In addition to inshore and offshore jackets and trousers, the brand manufacturer offers coastal jackets, regatta jackets and other specialist clothing.
Functional clothing - safe in wind and weather in the outdoors
Maritime fashion such as a Marinepool fleece jacket or rain jacket styled for water sports is the ideal complement to specialist sailing clothing. A fleece jacket also keeps the body warm on land and provides first-class comfort in adverse weather conditions. Not everything good comes from above - but with a rain jacket from Marinepool you can take excellent precautions. The range also includes functional softshell jackets, shirts, waistcoats and jumpers.
