TeamO 170N Pro Sensor BackTow Lifejacket and Harness


- +


Welcome to the TeamO Pro Sensor BackTow lifejacket with integrated harness.  When it comes to safety at sea the team behind this lifejacket have really pushed the boundary of lifejacket safety.  The major life saving advancement with this lifejacket is its ability to manoevre a man-overboard casualty into a back tow position which greatly reduces the risk of serious injury in the event of a man overboard incident. 

In the event of the user falling overboard the TeamO BackTow lifejacket will auto inflate and deploy a soft handle that the user can pull to switch the harness attachment point to the rear of the jacket which results in the user being towed backwards. A fantastic piece of marine safety equipment for sailors and yacht racers, available in black, grey or blue.

Product Features:

  • 170N lifejacket harness, suitable for inshore and offshore sailing
  • ISO12402-3 approved
  • The only lifejacket harness on the market with BackTow Technology. The patented BackTow technology functions in a manoverboard situation when the wearer is still tethered to a vessel. 
  • The jacket automatically inflates when water activated using the ProSensor firing head inside the cover.
  • After inflation, the wearer manually pulls the large BackTow handle that is available on top of the right hand lung. The wearer is then turned in to a face-up seated position in the water and they are towed alongside the vessel safely.
  • BackTow reduces the risk of injury during recovery by functioning as a strong point. A halyard can be clipped to any part of the BackTow strop and even a small person can then recover a MOB wearing a TeamO with the use of a winch.
  • Integrated Deck Safety Harness
  • Soft Loop attachment point to clip on to
  • SOLAS approved water-activated light included (5 year warranty. 8 hour continuous operation once activated)
  • Fully integrated Sprayhood included.
  • Whistle provided
  • Suitable for adult chest sizes 68cm-144cm
  • Double adjusters on the back for improved comfort and fit


UML ProSensor Firing Head

  • This is a water sensitive activation system, that uses a compress paper capsule which dissolves when wet, which then releases a spring to puncture the CO2 cylinder.
  • The cap is designed so that only water flowing upwards through the unit will cause it to activate. Water, spray and rain running down the jacket will not cause activation.
  • The Pro Sensor has two indicators that show the status of the CO2 cylinder and firing head.
