Fitting Instructions for the Original Air Jacket.

  • The Air Jacket should reach half way down the buttocks when deflated, this is to ensure it will cover the pelvis sufficiently when inflated.
  • It is important that there is enough room between the Air Jacket and the the Body Protector to allow for inflation, we suggest a fists width.
  • The Velcro straps can be adjusted accordingly.
  • Cross Country number bibs should be loosely fitted over an Air Jacket.
  • Adult and Large Child size Air Jackets should not be worn by anybody weighing less than 6 stone (38.1 kg)*.  These take 60cc canisters.
  • Childs Small and Medium Air Jackets should not be worn by a child weighing less than 4 stone (25.4 kg)*.  These take 50 cc canisters.

* These weights correspond to the force required to activate the trigger system.
