Minimalistic and stylish, Raph Derome's shorter cut vest uses nothing but the best of the best in materials. Its dual layer super stretch neoprene, featherweight foam, and unique offset front zipper make this vest subtle and unique. The TrueFit internal liner ensures no movement in the neo for a consistent ride all day long. The subtle badging reflects Raph's personality - quiet yet perfectly placed. Like we've always said, "always be yourself, unless you can be Raph Derome."
WARNING: This is not a life jacket to protect from drowning and IS NOT approved by the U.S. Coast Guard. Check your local and state regulations before purchasing.
+ TrueFit Liner
The curve of your body is often neglected when considering fabric application in today’s vests. Acknowledging this, Follow set out to design a natural bond between their featherweight foam and their super stretchy neoprene that holds true to the organic curve of your torso without the crumpling effect of unbound neo. The new Follow TrueFit Liners adapt to your ups and downs for consistent day-long comfort.
+ Reduced Individual Segments
Follow works closely with their factory to minimize the foam pocket sizing and to use a direct stitch-through process to manage areas that are prone to movement. This keeps all the foam in place for years to come.
+ Dual-Layer Neoprene
Wet neoprene increases in size by roughly 10%, depending on thickness and materials. Follow uses both external and internal neoprene layers to minimize this effect. Dual-Layer neoprene keeps the vest fitting as intended and helps to reduce chest expansion in the water.
+ Rubber Waist Pull Tabs
Getting a hold of the neoprene when it’s wet can be a little tricky so they created a rubber tab to get your thumbs around, it makes zipping up easy and adjusting the fit even easier.
+ Featherweight Foam
There are two ways to keep a life jacket as light as possible: reduce water absorption and use the lightest materials Follow can get their hands on. The featherweight foam is the best of both worlds, no kidding, feel for yourself.
