Abrasion-resistant outer fabric
Main fabric made of polyamide with a polyurethane coating that provides good resistance to wear and friction. Stitching protected & reinforced by protective material (braid).
Patented surface marker buoy
The patent applies to a one-way valve that allows the surface marker buoy to remain inflated, even when it is lying on the water (wind, waves, slack cord, etc.). Consequently, the surface marker buoy remains inflated and operational. This valve also acts as an overpressure valve, preventing damage to the surface marker buoy when the air expands as it rises to the surface.

    Good buoy, easy to use, but needs improvements

    I like this buoy for its simplicity, and its ease of use: just inflate with you spare second stage. No valve, no oral inflation tube, just a simple open bottom. It is well made, sturdy and I like the velcro closure on the storage flap.
    But, two things need improvement: One: the plastic retaining clip is USELESS and therefore dangerous underwater, as it is too tight and too small: you would not be able to easily UNclip this from a D-ring! This would render the buoy useless under water, not a great idea. Solution: I cut this plastic clip off and replaced it with a proper stainless steel clip that will work reliably under water. TWO: that plastic 'spool' thingy is cute, but it seems like a great way to tangle your line under water, so I replaced that with a small stainless finger spool with 15m of line and a dual ended snap hook. Now I have a great SMB, easy and reliable to use.
