The HO Sports Men's Syndicate Pro Wakeboard Comp Vest is specifically designed for high performance competition slalom skiing. The outer and inner surfaces employ smooth skin to allow water to bead off the surface with minimal water absorption. The inner material creates skin friction, so the vest stays in place and doesn't ride up after deep water starts. Without concern for readjusting, skiers can devote all their focus to the quickly approaching pass. The horizontal flex zones and flexible materials provide comfort and impact protection. The HO Sports Men's Syndicate Pro Wakeboard Comp Vest should be used only in highly supervised, controlled settings. WARNING: Not Coast Guard Approved - THIS IS NOT A LIFE SAVING DEVICE.
