COVID-19 and O’Brien: In the midst of everything going on, O’Brien Watersports is still up and running. As some of you know, our headquarters are based just outside of Seattle in Snoqualmie, WA and on March 23rd the governor mandated a stay-at-home order. Prior to the announcement, we made the necessary changes so that we are capable of working from home, which is what we’ll be doing until the situation improves. All of our daily operations are still functional with the exception of customer service being able to receive phone calls (if you leave a message, they will call you back). Alternatively, we recommend that you reach out to them via email at CustomerService@obrien.com for faster and more efficient assistance.
For anyone who has placed orders recently, there is no need to worry. We are still capable of processing and shipping orders from our warehouse in Texas and will continue to do so until further notice. As things change, we will do our best to keep you informed. Until then, stay safe and we can’t wait to see you back out on the water.
The Men’s Tech is our thinnest CGA life jacket and is manufactured from our highest quality, 4-way stretch neoprene. This means we’ve been able to create an insanely comfortable life jacket that will not restrict your movement and still follow the Coast Guards regulations for buoyancy… not an easy task. There is a hinge point built into the Men’s Tech for increased flexibility, and with its full front zipper and two concealed, adjustable belts, it fits nice and snug. You won’t be able to find another U.S. Coast Guard Approved life jacket that can out-perform the Men’s Tech. Harmonized U.S. Coast Guard/Transport Canada Approved

The Right Size – One seemingly common misconception is that life jacket sizing falls in line with your favorite t-shirt. It doesn’t. Please use the size chart in the image gallery above to accurately determine the appropriate size for your life jacket.
The Right Fit – Life jackets should be snug, but not so tight that it impacts your breathing. If you are in-between sizes, most people tend to choose the larger size for a snug fit that isn’t too tight.
For more information on how your life jacket should fit, please watch the video below.
4-way stretch neoprene and built-in flex points eliminate any sensation of constraint
