O'Neill NOMAD Comp Vest
Competition Vests are designed to fit skin tight. They are form fitting and will stretch. If you are used to wearing a loose fitting vest, ski and wake vests will feel much different. They are designed NOT to ride up on you while in the water. When you first zip the vest, it will feel very tight, then loosen up once you are in the water.
Our Vests are developed and tested by the best athletes on the water. The O’Neill 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 float the same.
What does H2OProShop have to say:
We love how buoyant O'Neill Comp vests are while not adding any bulk, the Nytrolite foam truly is noticeable right when you jump in the water. They are comfortable to wear, and impact resistant. We wouldn't sell anything that we gave a bad review, and O'Neill is on the top of our list for vest design!
