Safety Alert - Kapok Lifejacket

Kapok filled lifejackets with cotton straps are decades old and are unsafe, even if they are in their original packaging, have never been used and look in perfect condition.
Kapok is a cotton-like fluff that is no longer used in lifejacket manufacture because it naturally loses buoyancy over time and, if it gets wet, will absorb water.
Furthermore, the cotton straps rot over time, even if the lifejacket is not used, and will tear or break off the lifejacket when weight comes on it. Find out more.
