BackTow™ Fitted:

The only inflatable PFD harness on the market with BackTow Technology. TeamO's patented BackTow technology functions in a MOB (man-overboard) situation when the wearer is still tethered to a vessel. 

After inflation, the wearer manually pulls the large BackTow handle that is available on top of the right-hand lung. The wearer is then turned into a face-up seated position in the water and they are towed alongside the vessel safely.

BackTow reduces the risk of injury during recovery by functioning as a strong point. A halyard can be clipped to any part of the BackTow strap and even a small person can then recover a MOB wearing a TeamO with the use of a winch.

Patent number: 2782646
