This impact vest is perfect to use when winging, foiling and all towed sports.

The jacket has been thoroughly designed to position the foam in strategic places to limit the choc from falls. The role of this jacket is to absorb and dissipate impacts so you don’t feel as winded in big falls.

This cut out work of the dissipative panels enables the jacket to follow flexions and different body movement. It feels very free and doesn’t restrict movement.

The 15mm foams enable a light buoyancy while allowing you to duck under waves for example, without coming up like a cork and getting swept away. It feels very comfortable without being a lifejacket.

The lateral zip allows for unparalleled comfort in use without the discomfort of a front zip when bending forward. And you don’t feel the zip in your throat ;). The side entry remains easy to put on and remove the jacket. The scratch at the top of the zip ensures the slider remains shut during falls without being bulky.

The arms opening is important as it avoids any irritations should the jacket pull up a little . It also doesn’t cover the top of the hips to keep a svelte figure. The collar is also very wide to avoid any discomfort.

The 2mm neoprene on this jacket will give you considerable extra warmth. You can lower the thickness of your wetsuit by a good millimetre, or simply ride with it and your boardshorts when it’s hot.

This Impact Vest is perfectly compatible with the GONG Leash Belt which will fit over the vest. Remember to size up on the leash 😉

The impact vest is designed for foiling, but can be used on or under a harness (depending on your preference), but don’t forget the extra thickness created


This impact vest has been designed to give you maximum functionality and comfort. Quality neoprene, comfortable hydrophobic foam and YKK zipper for durability.

Scratches to keep the zipper closed even during violent falls.

User guide

Warning this hack is not a life jacket. Please comply with your local regulations to adapt your equipment accordingly. It is not an impact protection jacket either. It only partially reduces choc with water.

The impact vest must be very well adjusted as once in the water, it will loosen up slightly.
Our size recommendation chart takes this factor into account. If you are still not sure about which size is right for you, please reach out to our technical advisors.

You have clear benefits :

  1. A streamline impact vest design.
  2. Quality equipment.
  3. Very strong fabric and reinforcements.
  4. Strategically placed foams.
  5. An incredible price that can only be explained by our direct relationship with you.

Innovation is at the core of our products

Included equipments



  • We make quality products. We are not “low cost”.
  • We sell simply without an intermediary thanks to the internet: direct from shaper to surfer.
  • If we sold this board in a surfshop, it would cost 149€ (taking into account traditional margins that we should offer to distributers and stores).



The dates of availability of all our products are written on each product page, in the size and colour of the product concerned.

These dates are valid at the moment you consult the site and/or place an order. It is possible that this product may be ordered a few seconds after your consultation. It then becomes unavailable. If you have placed an order, this change does not concern you: the product you order is still available on the date indicated at the time of your order.

We sell several thousand products per week. The stocks are therefore very evolutionary. But our management always shows you the real availability live.

If it’s available online: it’s available ?



Some articles are proposed in pre-order during their routing to our premises. You can buy this article which will arrive at our place in a few weeks. This method avoids the fair to grab upon receipt of the lot and the disappointed ones who would not order within the hour.

Upon receipt, we will ship it to you as a regular order.

The times indicated on the pre-orders are 95% reliable. First of all, because we only pre-sell finished products that are arriving to us after Customs, and therefore shipped right after. And also, because we add decent margins with concern to the dates announced by the shipping companies or railways.

However, a Worker Strike, a breakdown, an overbooking, can unfortunately happen. In the case of a delay, you will be notified by email (check your spam). It is generally less than a week and totally independent of our good will.

As soon as we receive the container in La Baule, we ship your order within three working days. Then the carrier takes over: delivery time and tracking numbers are under their responsibility.

It is possible that the date displayed on the online for the pre-order of the item you have ordered and paid for may change for two reasons:

  1. All quantities of the batch are sold (most common reason). In this case, orders placed for the first container will be delivered as scheduled.
  2. The container is late and we have to shift the date by a few days. (Strikes, breakdowns, overbooking, can unfortunately happen). You will be notified by email.

We never change the delivery dates of a container without notifying customers.



The dates that we announce are shipping deadlines, which GONG has in stock and available here physically.

We usually give a shipping time within 3 days, but in most cases, we ship within 24/48 hours. Normally morning orders leave in the afternoon for example.

Then the transport service takes over. The variables are then important between the customer being delivered to France (very fast) or Bulgaria (a good week) or to a forwarding agent or to Asia or the USA… You understand that each location has its own type of delay.

We work with serious and well-known carriers. They do their utmost to make you happy even if a snafu can happen. In any case, we are there to make things easier and to arrange our customers.


Shipping Fees: 

Contrary to others, we do not hide shipping costs in the price of our products. At GONG everyone knows exactly what he pays. The transport is charged at its strictest value, and the person who comes to pick up his products does not pay hidden transport fees.

Shipping costs are calculated according to the weight and volume of each package, and your delivery address. To this is added a labour time of order preparation.

The invoicing of the shipping costs is identical in continental France and in the bordering European countries. A surcharge is automatically invoiced for deliveries to the most distant European countries and all European islands.

For a shipment in French overseas departments and territories or outside Europe, our logistics department will contact you before the payment stage to give you an estimate of the shipping costs. You will be able to accept this estimate and pay your order, or refuse it and cancel your order.


Any questions:

We answer you within 24 hours by email. But 95% of your questions are answered on the site. Try to use our contact form which will guide you to all these answers.

Don’t forget to read the Forum, where thousands of users exchange information and experiences.

In any case, don’t panic. If you don’t get an answer during the weekend, it’s normal: the team is resting ?

We are passionate and professional in our job. Our only goal is to make you happy, as much as possible ?


Tracking of your parcels :

The tracking of deliveries is directly ensured by the carriers to whom we have entrusted your parcels. They will contact you by email or SMS to allow you to choose the delivery methods and to follow the route of your package.

If you ask us for this tracking, we will have to do as you do: we will go see on the carrier’s app because they are the ones who manage and are responsible for this job.



We collaborate with the best transport providers to deliver you everywhere in Europe and in the world in very short delays.

We have chosen them for their quality of service and their respect of deadlines. 80% of your orders reach their destination in less than 48 hours of processing in metropolitan and continental France.

For Europe, the delays vary from 3 to 6 days depending on the country of destination.

For the rest of the world, delays can be up to 15 days.

Please note that the transport time is added to the preparation/shipping time. Two companies work on your order (GONG and the carrier). Each one controls its activity and commits itself to optimize its delays so that you are delivered as soon as possible, in good condition and at a reasonable price.



You can choose to return your products if:

  • You are not satisfied (14 days right of retraction).
  • You want to change an item.
  • You have refused your package.

For each situation, contact us by our contact form to help you.

6 reviews for GONG IMPACT VEST

  1. Moritz Mauch

    Super confortable impact vest, for every kind of sport. Specially for Wingfoiling but also a perfect impact vest for surfing in some larger or heavier waves. No compromise on your movement and the protection is right where it needs to be. Really happy with it.

  2. Frédéric Huet

    Retour sur le GONG gilet d’Impact:
    J’en ai eu plusieurs dans différentes marques et celui là est particulier adapté à la pratique du wingfoil.
    Le design est top, les mousses sont très bien placées elles descendent jusqu’en bas et suffisamment épaisses.
    Elles permettent en cas de chute violente d’amortir et de me protéger des rencontres éventuelles avec le foil à minima.
    On se sent vraiment libre, les découpes sont optimisées, son épaisseur permet également une bonne flottaison en cas de pépin.
    Le zip latéral permet de l’enfiler et retirer facilement.
    Son épaisseur et le neoprene qui le compose semble solide et apporte de la chaleur clairement.
    Je l’ai pris très ajusté et je ne regrette pas ainsi il ne bouge pas quand je chute .

  3. Jason Murphy

    Impact vest arrived. Top quality product , padded from top to bottom ??. Wing foiling has just got more exiting. Thank you gong ? let’s send it ?

  4. Malo

    Elle est top. Je sens mes cotes en fin de session 😉

  5. Fabien

    Clairement un indispensable pour envoyer des tricks. On l’adore.

  6. Titouan

    Produit top ! Ça change la vie en freestyle, race et même quand on surf des houles rapides, c’est quand même cool de ne pas revenir avec des bleus partout ?. Les finissions sont de qualités, attention à la prendre relativement serré pour que la veste ne remonte pas dans les grosses chutes.
