The O’Neill 2017 vest lineup defies known convention, sets a new industry standard, and leads the way for those who can only follow. Our Exclusive NytroLite Foam is more buoyant, 3 times lighter, drier and offers better impact protection than conventional foam.
Low Density Polyethylene which is expanded using Nitrogen in an exclusive process (which cannot be duplicated) The foam is actually 3 times lighter than regular PVC foam and it absorbs 15-20% less water due to the closed cell foam structure. The resulting foam is approximately 10% more buoyant than PVC meaning we can use less foam in each vest and it will still float the same.
