Abstract : This jacket, to be worn by Helicopter Mobile Crewmen or Helicopter passengers, provides for insulation and flotation to a wearer forced into cold water. It consists of an outer fire resistant aramid shell, a vest-like bladder attached to the shell and a layer of insulation. This bladder can be inflated thru a CO2 inflation device by a pull on a beaded handle. It can also be inflated orally. When inflated, the jacket will keep the wearer face-up in the water.
