A compact, lightweight, and comfortable to wear inflatable life preserver and survival vest combination for the professional pilot.  A single pull activates the CO2 system inflating the dual-chambered bladder.  This bladder features two oral inflation tubes and a recoverable displacement design in the event of single chamber puncture.  The bladder is currently in use by the US Coast Guard.  The Pro Vest provides a positive righting moment (face-up) with approximately 35 lbs. of buoyancy, characteristics normally found in large, bulky, rigid-type life preservers only.  Each flotation cell is made of a heavy-duty, puncture and abrasion resistant nylon.  Due to its design, the cell is simple to inspect, test, and repack.

The universally sized Pro Vest is constructed of nylon mesh for comfort and weighs less than 2 lbs.  Waist adjustment (30" to 48") is accomplished with two Delrin® adjustors.  All hardware is noncorrosive and the vest is equipped with two double ply nylon pockets providing impact and abrasion resistance.  Right Pocket 8" x 6" x 1¾" with a divider for a radio and survival equipment; left pocket 8½" x 5" x 2" for the HEED III escape breathing device.  The pockets are positioned to produce the least amount of interference and to distribute the weight properly.  The Pro Vest utilizes two 16 gram CO2 cylinders, which are included.
