O'Neill Women's Gem Wakeboard Comp Vest
The O'Neill Gem Comp is one of the most comfortable and best fitting women's competition vest we've ever seen. Featuring a multi-segmented core with strategic armhole sizes and super strong seams it provides what some would call a t-shirt fit.
The pullover design has incorporated a quarter side zip making entry into the vest and removal super easy. Just remember to make sure the girls are situated correctly when lifting the Gem Vest above your head. We would not want you to create an awkward barrier between you and everyone else in the boat.
The O'Neill Women's Gem Comp has been redesigned for 2014 and now features the new Nytrolite foam making it even lighter weight and quicker to dry over last years model. That is reason enough to jump on the team with the best female wakeboarders and waterskiers in the world.
O'Neill Nytrolite Foam Technology
Low Density Polyethylene which is expanded using Nitrogen in an exclusive process. The Nytrolite foam is 3 times lighter than regular PVC foam and absorbs 15 to 20% less water due to the closed cell foam structure. The foam is 10% more buoyant than PVC meaning O'Neill can use less in each vest and achieve the same flotation.
O'Neill Women's Wakeboard Vest Sizing
Both Women's O'Neill USCG Approved and Competition vests share the same sizing table for an easier wakeboard vest shopping experience. All women's vests are sized by chest or bust size. Obtain the chest size measurement by determining the circumference of the widest part of your upper torso, below the arms. Remember that neoprene does stretch so 100% accuracy is not totally necessary.
Happy Babe In The Gem
I love O'Neill vests because they fit tight and keep everything where it needs to be. After using pull over style vests I had issues keeping my top on when it was time to take them off. This can create quite the boating experience. The Gem is now the only wakeboard vest I wear. It really fits great and I love the front zipper.
