Many active, safety conscious families take their babies boating or canoeing. But until now they have only had PFD's made for children from 20-30 lbs. available to them, limiting families' activity choices.
The Salus Bijoux Baby Vest is not a scaled down adult PFD. It is constructed specifically for babies' top/head-heavy body structure and takes into account the real way a baby's body would behave in the water. Its one piece front design absolutely ensures that the baby will turn face up when in the water.  Watch the demonstration video.
The 3-piece collar cradles the baby's head when lifted by the collar straps or while the baby is floating on his or her back. Its mesh harness and short front provide enhanced comfort for sitting upright or lying down. Babies really don't mind wearing the Bijoux, we've heard it first hand!
Designed by a Canadian Marine company, Salus Marine, this life vest received the Marine Industry Safety Product of the Year award for 2005 as well as the Canadian Safe boating Award for best new Safety product.
Transport Canada has given the Bijoux Baby Vest two thumbs up. By law, Transport Canada is not allowed to give official approval to any PFD for a child less than 20 lbs. Please click to read an important letter from Transport Canada Marine Safety.
We recently heard from the manufacturer of the Bijoux, who was contacted by a family that was actually in a boating accident.
Their baby was thrown from the boat, landed in the water, and just floated comfortably and safely on his back. He was easy to rescue. A happy ending to what could have been a terrible tragedy.
We have sold hundreds and hundreds of these and have feedback from many parents who say that the Bijoux has allowed them to have peace of mind when on or near the water with their babies.
Get your babies out and enjoying the water early with the Salus Bijoux Life Vest, designed just for them!
