Hi Simon and to the rest of the gang.
The Sigma Lifejacket is a good quality lifejacket, I am selling them cheaply as I do not have very big overheads, I use these as a loss leader/promotional type product, the RRP is quite a bit more and that goes for most of my products.
I sell a couple of hundred of these ones each year and I have been selling them for several years, I have never had one returned or heard of a single complaint until now, which I am obviously sorry to hear about as I am sure this is an one off. I would add that I have heard complaints directed at leading UK based manufacturers more recently and frequently and also a product recall.
All lifejackets sold in the UK must conform the various standards and I am pleased to say the Sigma and in fact all of the life jackets I sell conform or exceed these tough standards.
I would be very unhappy if anybody is suggesting these jackets are dangerous and I am sure Lalizas would be as well.
If anybody has any questions relating to safety equipment I would be more then happy to offer impartial, friendly advice.
