Following our simple measuring instructions we are able to reproduce a fully customized suit. In addition each suit comes with installed CWU-75P stretch PTFE breathable laminate socks that keep your feet dry and are easy to slip into any footwear.

ISPLR 1 Person Life raft

ISPLRThe unique U-shaped design allows the raft to be fully reversible, allowing quick, easy entry from the water - whichever side is up when it automatically inflates. The ISPLR's low slung floor design allows seating at a slight recline lowering the center of gravity well below the waterline, increasing stability in rough waters. Twin zippers, located on either side, allow you to partially close the canopy, keeping the elements out while providing great ventilation.
