The Campaign for The First Two in One Buoyancy Harness Has Been Launched

Blood Red understands the frustration of having a separate vest and a harness that can obstruct your movements as you sail. With this problem, the company has created a revolutionary solution by combining the buoyancy vest and sailing harness that is Integra – Buoyancy Harness. To spread the word and gain support for this innovative design Blood Red started a 30 days Kickstarter campaign to reach the goal of £15, 000.00 to produce Integra.

Integra is devised for any trapeze sailor with its streamlined design that allows freedom of movement— each panel intended to move with your body and grant exceptional comfort even for raid type races. This two-in-one buoyancy harness is lightweight at 1.1kg to allow superior performance and has multiple adjustment points to give maximum convenience. Integra is fully approved to CE 50N safety rating and World Sailing standards.

To support this ground-breaking campaign, head on to for more information, or email us at

That CE certified 50n is not USCG approved for use in the USA. Too small for the US and in Europe they only allow it for inshore sailing with support at hand.

The CE standard for a 50 newton PFD says:

This level is intended for use by those who are competent swimmers and who are near to bank, shore, or who have help and a means of rescue close at hand. These garments have minimal bulk, but they are of limited use in disturbed water, and cannot be expected to keep the user safe for a long period of time. They do not have sufficient buoyancy to protect people who are unable to help themselves. They require active participation by the user. Standards applicable to this level; EN 393 or ISO 12402 – 5.
