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
  • Cylinder is contained inside bladder to protect against corrosion

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
