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

For most humans, mayflies seem like a nuisance, hovering over the waterways as we try to enjoy them. However, for anyone hoping to monitor the health of watersheds, mayflies are important aquatic species—and now, a digital version of the mayfly is helping some scientists keep an eye on the water. Research scientist Dr. Scott Ensign , who serves as Assistant Director of the Stroud Water Research Center , spoke to EM about how the digital mayfly technology developed.
“ Shannon Hicks is the engineer who started developing the Mayfly six or seven years ago,” explains Dr. Ensign.Read More
Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat.
"This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.Read More
CICHAZ Biological Field Station Provides A Unique Educational and Research Experience in Mexico’s Huasteca Region
The story of the Centro de Investigaciones Científicas de las Huastecas "Aguazarca" (CICHAZ) Biological Field Station, a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), starts with Dr. Gil Rosenthal, Professor of Biology and Chair of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Texas A &; M University . Rosenthal has worked in the Huasteca region of Mexico since 1994 and for years kept his research equipment at a local ranch/hotel with the dream of one day having a field station where he could run experiments with collaborators and students. Since 2005, Rosenthal has been the Co-Director of the field station along with his wife, Dr.Read More
