Adult Universal (over 80 lbs.; Chest 30"-52")
Hydrostatic Technology Hydrostatic pressure is applied to objects submerged in water. The new hydrostatic inflator needs only to be submerged 4 inches (10 cm) for hydrostatic pressure to open a pressure valve which releases a firing mechanism that automatically inflates the PFD.
Reliable Inflation The PFD inflates under hydrostatic pressure and will not inflate prematurely due to rain, humidity or water contact (the PFD can also be inflated by pulling the activation cord).
Low Maintenance No inflator maintenance is required for five years, unless fired.
Safety Inspection Window Easily view the inflator replacement date and inflator status through the safety inspection window - green indicates ready for use.
SecureZip™ closure Born from our research in military applications, the patented SecureZip™ closure system keeps the PFD closed during the most rigorous activity, makes the PFD easy to repack and effortlessly opens upon inflation.
