Details

Incorporating new and improved hydrostatic inflation technology, and a durable and easy-to-use SecureZip PFD closure system, the Auto Hydrostatic Inflatable Vest with LIFT is a lightweight inflatable PFD designed with a shorter length and a low and flexible profile to ensure total mobility during even the most rigorous activities.

Made primarily for performance sailors and power boaters, and security and rescue professionals, the Vest is also an excellent choice for individuals who desire added protection.

Engineered with the revolutionary LIFT PFD design, the Vest delivers a high level of safety for users in variable wind and wave conditions by elevating the mouth out of the water by up to 9 inches (23cm). Known as freeboard, this increase in elevation has been shown to reduce underwater mouth immersions by 80%, increasing the chance of survival in accidental immersion situations.
  • 40 lb buoyancy when inflated
  • LIFT provides up to 9" of freeboard - the highest elevation out of water ever seen in a PFD - for extra safety in severe weather. This reduces mouth immersions and increases visibility to rescue crews.
  • Auto hydrostatic inflator is maintenance free for 5 years unless inflated
  • When inflated, LIFT bladder has stabilizing wings on sides and behind the neck to provide support in rough waters
  • Safety Inspection Window - window allows user to easily inspect inflator status: green indicates inflator is ready for use
  • SecureZIP closure withstands rigorous activity and is easy to repack
  • Comfortable neoprene collar
  • Mesh back allows for good air flow to keep wearer cool
  • Durable 420-Denier nylon

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.

Size Them Up With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

We've all felt the frustration of weeding through a school of dinks to catch a "keeper." Often the small fish outnumber the bigger ones and they are typically more aggressive. Sometimes there's no choice but to deal with it, as is often the case with open water fishing. However a frozen lake involves a vertical presentation and a stable platform, it's a perfect situation to pick and choose which fish you want. Once you locate a school and get set up it's time to start sizing them up with a FishSens SondeCAM underwater fishing camera. It can be mind-blowing just how big some of these schools of fish are and also how outnumbered fish of a desirable size can be.
