Introducing the all new 2019 Standup Paddleboarding 'S-UP Vest' - now available from Blue Soup Co.
The S-UP Vest has been designed so it doesn’t interfere with the paddler’s range of movements and is of course comfortable to wear, its lightweight design is intended to be unobtrusive yet functional and takes into account the fact that some prefer not to wear a life jacket.
Still made from our signature 4 way stretch fabric, we have arranged the control tabs into positions where they will not interfere with your movement while out on the water.
The S-UP Vest comes in either :
Black with a cyan blue collar and sleeve detail
Cyan with a black collar
Depending on where in the world you are Surfing, SUP’ing or on the water we are aware that there are sometimes difficulties sourcing Co2 refills for your Blue Soup UP or SUP Vest (as the cylinders are available with different thread sizes 1/2” or 3/8”). So with this in mind the team at Blue Soup have decided to give you the customer the option to chose which size works best for where you. So when you order you’re UP or SUP Vest make sure you check the box that indicates the size thread you would like on your inflation head.
You are ordering your S-UP Vest on the understanding that it can take up to 6 weeks to produce in the UK as are handmade to order. However, we always endeavor to beat this timescale ( by a long way as we do hold stock at our base ) and will keep you updated with tracking order.
Please Note that your S-UP Vest is not delivered with Co2 cylinders due to restrictions in some countries with shipping. We recomend you purchase your cylinders from a reputable supplier in your area.
S-UP Vest - Black, Cyan or Camo Print
The Blue Soup S-UP Vest is available in three designs, the trade mark black with a cyan details , Cyan blue body with black details and Camouflage Blue.
The outer vest is manufactured in the United Kingdom from a four way stretch material that is unique to the water sports safety world, manufactured for use in the incredibly tough world of full contact field sports.
The most important element the inflation system is again manufactured in the United Kingdom by our specialist manufacturing partner who has over half a century of experience in design and production of life vests and other safety at sea products.
The inflatable lung that gives the Blue Soup S-UP Vest its buoyancy has been specially designed to give the maximum amount of lift (for those technically minded over 100n’s worth) and to keep the wearer afloat in a head back position. The lungs design has been thoroughly tested and can withstand pressures over and above the industry standard (20-22 psi), in fact we have tested the production lung and it exceeded the industry standard by 6 psi!
The inflation system is controlled by pulling the four control tabs situated high on either side of the chest; this activates the Co2 cylinders and thus inflates the lung. There is an oral inflation tube located high on the chest on the right hand side that can be accessed by the wearer and buoyancy can be added without activating the Co2 supply. There is a dump valve tab located on the left hand side above the hip that can be used to regulate the vests buoyancy and the dump valve also acts as an over fill pressure release should both cylinders be accidently activated simultaneously.
Please also note that your UP Vest is not delivered with Co2 cylinders due to restrictions in some countries with shipping. We recomend you purchase your cylinders from a reputable supplier in your area.
