Designed specifically for pilots and aircrew to be worn over flight suits, the MSV971 is a light weight, fire resistant and highly durable aircraft survival vest. Providing a full 37lbs of buoyancy, the inflatable cell - available in manual inflation - is comprised of two independent chambers, separated by a fully integrated floating baffle system. This provides for an orally inflated reserve chamber in the event that the primary chamber becomes damaged.
