Jettribe introduces a PWC Industry first, the 2012 Race Vest with integrated Back Pro
PWCs are getting faster and more powerful every year. But in 2011, riders are still relying on motocross equipment not designed for PWC use to protect themselves from the hazards of high speed racing. What's wrong with that picture? At Jettribe, we believe that the dawn of a new era in PWC watersports is long overdue, and we're striving to pave the way for an evolution.....no, a revolution.....in PWC gear designed specifically for PWC riding. You don't wear football helmets to ride motorcycles. Why would you wear motorcycle helmets to ride PWCs in the water? This is the conundrum that has plagued Jettribe R&D for years now, and 2011 is the year that all that pondering and hard work has come to fruition.
For 2012, Jettribe is super stoked to announce the brand new Race Vest with integrated Back Protector! I know, right? You're probably thinking, "It's about time!" Well, so were we. PWC riders need just as much protection as their land cousins and they deserve protection they can call their own. This thing has clear overlapping polycarbonate panels to protect that ever so precious spine of ours while not covering the ridiculously cool Flying Skulls print that decorates the Race Vest. Break-away plastic rivets and 6-point velcro mounting keep it in place. Built-in water drain vents ensures that water doesn't weigh it down. And it's a great piece of lightweight armor should the Zombie Apocalypse ever happen. How's that for multi-purpose? The Jettribe Race Vest with integrated Back Protector! Let the revolution begin

Thanks for stepping up to the plate. What is the impact speed rating of the vest? Is there any way to make it available with leg straps so it will not come off over your head in a high speed crash?

Kind of looks like the Master Chief (as in Halo )

Is it CG rated?
Does it have an option for a neck roll?
Do you make custom sizes?
