A full-size inflatable life raft that can be folded to a compact size and deployed by a person in (or out of) the water.
Potential applications include: divers, boaters, private and commercial pilots, Coast Guard, military, law enforcement, helicopter teams, etc.
Why is this important?
· Traditional life rafts have been too heavy and bulky to be carried on the user.
· Use of life raft greatly increases the chances of victims to survive extended durations on open water.
· Removing injured victims from the water reduces stress and increases chances of survival.
Compact design – can be folded flat and worn on person.
Generously sized (6 ft long x 3.5 ft wide when deployed) can easily support an adult occupant.
Full flotation - 300 pounds of lift allows victim to be fully removed from the water; particularly important if the victim is unconscious or bleeding.
Brightly colored - for greater visibility from land, water or air.
Easy attachment - comes with stainless steel attachment hardware.
Optional: Zippered storage pouch
