The Mystic Star Impact vest protects you against hard crashes on and off the water. The wake vest has extra padding around the center so cannot be used with a harness, but can be used winging or any other sport which does not require a bulky harness.
The Star Impact vest has sturdy, thick padding all around. In the middle of the back an extra sturdy clash foam has been used. The padding also gives you a little bit of extra buoyancy so that you can float more easily if you want to put your kiteboard back on. No padding has been placed around your waist on purpose to leave space for your kitesurf harness. Because the zipper is on the front of the Mystic Star Impact vest, the impact vest is easy for everyone to put on.
