SWITLIK introduces NEW ETSO Constant‐Wear Life Vest

Trenton, New Jersey - SWITLIK Survival Products will be unveiling a new addition to their Constant‐Wear Life Vest line at the Heli‐Expo 2014. The line will now include a new and innovative “ETSO life vest”.

The life vest is designed to comply with ETSO‐2C504 certification for use on helicopter operations to and from helidecks located in hostile sea areas. One of the unique features of this new life vest is an integrated lifting becket located at the center of the vest which has a breaking strength in excess of 585 lbs. (2,600 N).

This new vest has a similar design to, and will look and feel much like the current Switlik X‐Back life vest. In addition, the new ETSO vest comes standard with a detachable hood and spray shield which is packed inside the life vest cover. Leg loops are permanently fixed to the vest for added comfort and stability to the wearer during lifting. The vest has several features that make it highly visible including a reflective back panel/grab handle. The ETSO vest is heavy duty, and ideal for users working in hostile areas.

Established in 1920, SWITLIK has been owned and operated by the Switlik family for four generations and is known worldwide as a manufacturer of the highest quality sewn and heat sealed inflatable safety and survival products for the aviation, marine, and military markets.
