Cruise With Confidence.

There’s no better feeling than spending your day on the boat. And when it comes to keeping you and your family safe on the water, Onyx offers some of the safest, most comfortable life jackets for boating. From infant life jackets to adult life jackets, we have a variety of styles, sizes and colors for each member of your crew. So whether you’re early-morning fishing, afternoon tubing or sunset cruising, Onyx boating life vests aren’t just up for the adventure—they’re made for it.

  • Traditional Life Jackets

    These foam boating life vests are inherently buoyant. Their lightweight designs provide plenty of comfort and are a perfect match for kids and adults who love to swim, tube, water ski—and every activity in between.

    Range of Sizes

    Onyx offers life jackets for the whole family: infants, children, adults and pets.

    Made to Fit

    Smartly designed belts and straps are adjustable and prevent life jackets from riding up.

    Brighter Colors

    Increased visibility makes it easy to spot your kids when they’re off the boat.
