Capewell Survivor Life Vest - No Collar
The Capewell Survivor lifevest is a brand new and unique design without collar , which otherwise may cause probrems with ergonomy and integration with other gear, such as helmet, NVG batteri pack etc. The flotation bladder is instead integrated in the vest front structure from the neck down to the waist. The bladder is activated and inflated by pulling the red activation handle, which in turn makes the front sides of the vest fold aside, and make way for the bladder to inflate.
- Ergonomy and comfort: the vests offers a phenomenal ergonomy and comfort, thanks to that the vest design allows the pressure to releave on shoulders and neck when sitting in the cockpit seat.
- Flotating angle and floatline: due to the design, the bladder is kept very closely to the body and also has a very low lifting point, which in turn generates a very good float angle and float height in the water
- Self-righting: the Self-rightingis very good with this vest, also with lots of equipment and load mounted on the vest
- Flexibility: The modular systme with molle pockets makes the system very flexible and easy to customize to various missions or use. Both standard molle pockets and customized pocket are available.
- Weight: 40-50% less weight than standard molle-vests with flotation bladder
- Total cost of ownership: the concept with one-size-fits-all makes it possible to adjust the vest for multiple users and also offers a cost efficient stocking and maintenance of the system
