The key to personal flotation devices is to actually wear them. The Onyx A/M 24 makes that part easy. The slim, lightweight design is generations away from your grandfather’s bulky orange life vests. With a choice of automatic or manual settings, this inflatable style life vest works for every wearer, every time. 

The short design makes this vest much less cumbersome than other PFDs, which means it won’t interfere whether you’re grinding a winch, fishing, kayaking, paddleboarding, or just relaxing aboard.

An additional design feature distributes the weight of this life vest across your shoulders, not on your neck, so you can have this PFD on all day without it bothering you. And the closed neck design of the Onyx A/M 24 means there is no Velcro to pull at your hair. The Onyx designers have pretty much eliminated any excuse for wearing a PFD and staying safe. 

The Onyx A/M 24 has a slim, lightweight design.

Onyx went over and above industry standards with an innovative assembly on the inside too. If you ever need to recharge the Onyx A/M 24 life vest you will find the inflator only reassembles one way so you can’t make a mistake.

Unlike other inflatable PFD’s on the market, the Onyx A/M 24 provides adequate flotation in a small, comfortable vest that is easy to wear, operate, and recharge – it is the only vest you’ll ever need.
