The TRITON flotation vest provides variable buoyancy up to 35 lbs using a manually inflated C02 cylinder. The folding pattern and snap closured create a low drag profile when swimming. Three utility pockets on the front of the vest allow for storage of auxiliary equipment such as strobe lights, signaling equipment, and knives. Each pocket has internal connection points for lanyards. An oral inflation valve allows the wearer to adjust buoyancy.
