****FOR PURCHASE BY ACTIVE DUTY US COAST GUARD ONLY****
A lightweight and extremely comfortable vest for professional and commercial operators. The #481 features manual pull-lanyard CO2 inflation. The beaded lanyard is easily identified by touch in an emergency. Vest may also be inflated orally and provides the SOLAS standard 35 lbs of buoyancy, more than twice that of a typical Type III PFD. The inflatable cell requires minimal maintenance, is constructed of 210 denier polyurethane-coated nylon, and is protected by a heavy-duty nylon cover for durability. When inflated, the high-visibility orange cell exposes SOLAS grade retro-reflective panels and attached whistle. Quick release front buckle & stainless steel slide bar side adjustors.
Fitted with the Halkey Roberts Auto Inflator providing automatic backup inflation when submerged in water. USCG only requires annual maintenance.
