O'Neill NytroLite Foam Technology
Exclusive Nytrolite Foam is more buoyant, 3 times lighter, drier, and offers better impact protection than conventional foam. An exclusive process expands low-density polyethylene using nitrogen. This creates a foam that is 3 times lighter than regular PVC foam. It also absorbs 15-20% less water due to the closed cell foam structure. The resulting foam is about 10% more buoyant than PVC, meaning there is less foam in the vest but with the same buoyancy.
