Details

Most safety gear comes with compromises. Most are bulky, cumbersome and look awkward and clumsy to wear. Not the AB-1100 Flotation Bomber Jacket! Looking sleek and modern with all weather features of First Watch's Anti Exposure Suit, this great looking coat fits and moves like no other flotation jacket. Like the traditional bomber style jacket it was designed after, the waist-high cut of the coat allows a free range of movement without excess bulk in the mid-section while angle cut hand warmer slash pockets keep valuables and essential gear close at hand. MMS Fit system will make you forget you're wearing a jacket safe enough to save your life.

First Watch flotation suits, coats, bombers and pants are engineered to enhance comfort and safety by incorporating our exclusive MMS® SYSTEM.

MOBILITY
MMS articulated arms and legs means the garment bends with you. Our supersoft foam provides the flexibility for active boating movements.

MOISTURE BARRIER
MMS soft foam provides buoyancy and creates a barrier to rain entry. Internal bonded foam panels form a complete water barrier. When immersed MMS helps you retain precious body heat.

SAFETY
MMS foam gives USCG approved flotation. When immersed, MMS helps you retain precious body heat. Added safety features include the high-vis insulated hood & SOLAS reflective tape located on head, wrist and shoulders

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
