The Syndicate Ethos Comp Vest was designed to outfit the top womens skiers in the world, like Jaimee Bull, Allie Nicholson and more. Lighter, stronger, and featuring incredibly quick drying materials, it 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 deepwater starts. Without concern for readjusting, skiers can devote all their focus to the quickly approaching pass. The horizontal flex zones and flexible materials provide the maximum mobility competition slalom skiers need to ski their best. This comp vest is not a life jacket and is not coast guard approved. It should be used only in highly supervised, controlled settings. Non Coast Guard Approved –This is not a Life Jacket. Lightweight Flexible Construction. Quick Drying. Water Repellent Materials.
