MTI stands for Marine Technologies International

MTI specializes in one thing, designing and building USCG approved life jackets for what we like to call “human powered boating”. Whether you’re in a canoe, kayak, raft, sailboat or SUP, MTI makes a life vest for you.  MTI is a family owned business based in historic Plymouth, Massachusetts.  Owners Lili and Gordon Colby are passionate about paddlesports and near-shore sailing. This passion drives MTI product designs.

MTI products comply with stringent UL certification and US Coast Guard requirements and every MTI model is thoroughly tested in the water for proper buoyancy.  like you, we are people who love to canoe, kayak, SUP, sail, fish, and enjoy time on the water. Our design inspiration comes from what we experience ourselves. Our commitment to quality product and friendly reliable customer service comes from our core values as people who care about what we do.

The best life vest is the one you will wear, we want to make a PFD that you will choose to wear because it is comfortable, looks good, and is affordable. No one wants a good day on the water to end up badly.  Wear a Life Jacket for yourself and the ones you love.  We hope you will make it an MTI. Live. Love. Life[Jackets]. MTI.
