VEST TECH

Inch by inch of every vest is meticulously thought through from zipper to stitching, nothing happens by accident. And if it does, we’d lied about it anyway.

YKK Aquaguard® Water Repellent Zippers.

Extra durable polyurethane laminated zippers with a special water repellent treatment not only look schmick but contribute to an extra defence against intrusive elements touching the skin.

Truefit Liner.

The curve of your body is often neglected when considering fabric application in today’s vests. Acknowledging this, we set out to design a natural bond between our featherweight foam and our super stretchy neoprene that holds true to the organic curve of your torso without the crumpling effect of unbound neo. The new follow TrueFit© Liners adapt to your ups and downs for consistent day-long comfort.

Reduced Foam Panel Segments.

Follow works closely with our factory to minimize the foam pocket sizing and to use a direct stitch-through process to manage areas that are prone to movement. This keeps all our foam in place for years to come.

Ribbed Paneling.

Ribbed Paneling enforces the vest’s structure while allowing for maximum movement. This also allows us to shape the vest beyond a traditional flat slab of foam to evenly spread impact distribution to the areas that need it most.

Dual Layer Construction.

Wet neoprene increases in size by roughly 10%, depending on thickness and materials. We use both external and internal neoprene layers to minimize this effect. Dual-Layer Neoprene keeps the vest fitting as intended and helps to reduce chest expansion in the water.

Featherweight Foam.

There are two ways to keep a life jacket as light as possible: reduce water absorption and use the lightest materials we can get our hands on. Our featherweight foam is the best of both worlds. No kidding. Feel it for yourself.

Uncompromising Quality

Inch by inch of every vest is meticulously thought through from zipper to stitching, nothing happens by accident. And if it does, we’d lied about it anyway.

Duraprene©.

Duraprene neoprene, a tougher, grittier-tex¬tured neoprene. One of our most tested and durable materials. Tough as nails on the outside but still soft and stretchy on the inside.

Seceraprene©.

A textured neoprene with a more resilient porous outer acts to disperse pressure upon impact with the water. Strong and durable with a certain subtlety on the outside while maintaining its soft internal credibility.

Quad-S©.

(Seriously Soft-Super Stretchy). Our regular-stretch neoprene taken to the next level. This stuff is seriously soft, seriously stretchy and really comfortable. Feels like you’re wearing nothing at all, without compromising durability.

Corduroy.

‘The waiting drove me mad, you’re finally here and I’m a mess’. Corduroy Neoprene is a detail that harks back to 90’s grunge. A bevelled line texture blends with natural colours to give a look like no other neoprene in our range. Why not wear your flannel shirt while you’re at it?

D-Mesh Glideskin XT.

Tending to repel water, Glideskin is a flexible, highly dynamic and super warm material. It helps prevent wind chill and soaks up heat from the sun, completely stopping water absorption for the lightest neoprene available when wet. Available in our Origins Pro series.

Chevron.

If you are only as strong as your weakest link, we’re impenetrable. The Chevron FUG features a dot point weaving that gives it it’s durability while adding a unique overall texture to the vest.
