TEAM O:

TeamO was founded after a number of high profile accidents and fatalities involving sailors falling overboard and then being dragged face forward in the water by their lifejacket tether equipment. There was clearly a need to improve technical safety products to keep both racers and cruisers safer whenever they were clipping on.
British sailor Oscar Mead, together with his family and a small, dedicated team based in Southampton in the UK created TeamO and launched the patented BackTow lifejacket deck harness in 2016. Since then it has received wide spread acclaim – it was even called ‘revolutionary’ by one of the industry’s leading publications.

WE ARE ALL TAUGHT THAT STAYING WITH YOUR BOAT IS THE NUMBER ONE SAFETY RULE AND THAT CLIPPING ON IS IMPORTANT, BUT HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU GO OVERBOARD WHILST TETHERED ON?
THE TEAMO BACKTOW IS THE ONLY LIFEJACKET IN THE WORLD THAT CAN TURN YOU FACE UP IF YOU GO OVERBOARD WHILST CLIPPED ON TO A VESSEL.

170N BACKTOW LIFEJACKET AND HARNESS:

  – AVAILABLE IN BLACK, BLUE AND GREY COLOURS
  – 170N lifejacket harness, suitable for inshore and offshore sailing
  – ISO12402-3 approved
  – The only lifejacket harness on the market with BackTow Technology. Our patented BackTow technology functions in a manoverboard situation when the wearer is still tethered to a vessel.
  – The jacket automatically inflates when water activated using the ProSensor firing head inside the cover.
  – After inflation, the wearer manually pulls the large BackTow handle that is available on top of the right hand lung. The wearer is then turned in to a face-up seated position in the water and they are towed alongside the vessel safely.
 – BackTow reduces the risk of injury during recovery by functioning as a strong point. A halyard can be clipped to any part of the BackTow strop and even a small person can then recover a MOB wearing a TeamO with the use of a winch.
  – Integrated Deck Safety Harness
  – Soft Loop attachment point to clip on to
  – SOLAS approved water-activated light included (5 year warranty. 8 hour continuous operation once activated)
  – Fully integrated Sprayhood included.
  – Whistle included
  – Suitable for adult chest sizes 68cm-144cm
  – Double adjusters on the back for improved comfort and fit

INFLATION SYSTEMS:
UML ProSensor Firing Head
(TeamO lifejackets come with the ProSensor Firing Head fitted as standard and are our preferred inflation system for TeamO lifejackets.)
This is a water sensitive activation system, that uses a compress paper capsule which dissolves when wet, which then releases a spring to puncture the CO2 cylinder.
The cap is designed so that only water flowing upwards through the unit will cause it to activate. Water, spray and rain running down the jacket will not cause activation.
The Pro Sensor has two indicators that show the status of the CO2 cylinder and firing head.
Manual Firing Head
UML Manual Only activated Inflations Systems have a Yellow Pull Toggle.
The lifejacket will only inflate after the toggle has been manually deployed by the wearer.
This system may be preferable for sailors who are expecting to sail in more extreme conditions where the wearer may experience more water across the deck than most boats.

275N LIFEJACKET HARNESS:

– AVAILABLE IN BLACK, BLUE AND GREY COLOURS
The 275N BackTow Lifejacket is intended primarily for offshore use under extreme conditions. It is also of value to those who are wearing clothing which traps air and which may adversely affect the self-righting capacity of the lifejacket.
