SECUMAR Bolero - new look to a classic design
Maximum movement – the original concept of the BOLERO that won the ‘Safety Prize’ at the Hamburg International Boat Show over 20 years ago with its classic combination of lifejacket and integral harness has new been further improved.
SECUMAR BOLERO – a proven concept further improved.
| The new BOLERO. Comfortable as ever but functional as never before. || |
The secret of the BOLERO’s success is in its short high cut that gives it such a tight ergonomic and comfortable fit and all in spite of containing a high volume 275 Newton swim bladder within its outer cover. That means boaters can be comfortable – and also have the top level of flotation.
As well as having a new up to date look, the BOLERO 275 has many practical improvements as well. The diagonal front zip in the outer cover allows easier packing of the swim bladder into such a compact area as well as avoiding accidental opening and chafing when the opening is round the edge. This is really important for long distance sailors where comfort is essential.
In keeping with the SECUMAR philosophy, all the components of the lifejacket are sourced and tested to a very high standard. Firstly the 4001S firing mechanism with its unique bayonet fixing gas bottle and single green/red ‘status’ button (indicates full cylinder and firing pill installed) can be seen through an inspection window in the cover and has its own zipped compartment for servicing without opening the entire lifejacket. Secondly the lifejacket is delivered with a manual override attachment that can be used instead of the firing pill to convert it into ‘manual/gas’ operation. The specification also includes 3M reflective strips, fixing point for an emergency light, mesh rear section, removable washable neck fleece, heavy duty front click buckle, whistle, crutch strap fixing loops, a second front zipped pocket as well as a mesh backed storage bag.
