We love to make life jackets that our customers want to wear

With Plymouth Harbor and Cape Cod in our backyard, we can kayak, canoe, fish, SUP or sail just five minutes from our office and warehouse in Plympton, Massachusetts. With this as our playground, it's no surprise that our design inspiration comes out of what we experience ourselves. When our kids were little, we set out to build a better youth jacket: the BOB. When we fell in love with Standup Board Paddling we set out to transform the boring inflatable belt pack into something cool that we'd want to wear. New for 2013 is the VOYAGER. It was born out of our experience of having a multigenerational household. Seeing my 80 year old Dad struggle to clip up a life jacket set us to thinking. How could we make a PFD for active seniors that would address the physical challenges of aging? How could it be easier to put on and use so that they would be encouraged to keep boating? Funny thing is, when we introduced the vest at Outdoor Retailer we discovered that there are a lot of people who can benefit from the VOYAGER. Like a wounded warrior with a prosthetic hand.

At the center of our thinking is the belief that if we can build better product, people will choose to wear a life jacket. Not just because a law says you should. But because it's the smart thing to do and with an MTI jacket, it's no big deal! No one ever goes out to play on the water expecting an accident to happen. But unfortunately the unexpected sometimes does happen. And for those times, wearing a PFD could make all the difference. We want folks to safely enjoy our water planet playground. To explore and delight in the waterways in your backyard and far beyond. MTI has over 20 years of experience making life jackets. 20 years of always asking "how can we make it better".

Thank you for keeping us inspired!
