Made in Canada. This is the life vest (PFD) everyone has been dreaming about. It is made specifically for babies from 9-25 lbs. Many active, safety-conscious families take their babies boating or canoeing. Until now they have only had PFD's made for children from 20-30 lbs. available to them. This life vest, the Salus Bijoux Baby Vest, fills a real void in the water safety product line.
It is not a scaled-down adult PFD. It is constructed specifically for babies' top-heavy body structure and takes into account the real way a baby's body would be in the water. Transport Canada has given the Bijoux Baby Vest two thumbs up. (By-law Transport Canada is not allowed to give official approval to any PFD for a child less than 20 lbs.)
Designed by a Canadian Marine company, Salus Marine, this life vest received the Marine Industry Safety Product of the Year award for 2005 as well as the Canadian Safe Boating Award for the best new Safety product.
- Its one-piece front design ensures that the baby will turn face up from a face-forward position.
- The 3-piece collar cradles the baby's head when lifted by the collar straps or while the baby is floating on his or her back.
- Its mesh harness and short front provide enhanced comfort for sitting upright or lying down.
