Reflective Elements for Safety
Premium ultra light shell jacket with Sureflote™ flotation assist can be worn on the boat, at the marina, working the docks, manning the nets or even on the winter ice. The Guardian gives you peace of mind as well as superior protection from the elements. The waterproof/breathable shell is fully seam taped so it can serve as rain gear. The underarm vents help moderate inside temperatures. The Sureflote™ flotation assist system, when used as a jacket & bib combo, can keep the average person afloat for two hours or more. It is not a PFD but in most circumstances will give you enough time to get to safety. Use layers as appropriate to dress for colder winter weather.
The Guardian Jacket features a 320D Tussor shell, 210T inner lining, lycra inside cuffs with adjustable closure and front zipper storm flap. For ventilation, the Guardian Jacket has "through-to-skin" underarm zip vents. And of course there are plenty of pockets to haul what you need. The matching Guardian Bibs have extra flotation material in the seat and knees for additional protection. The bibs also have full length leg zippers, 600D Endura knees and an adjustable inseam/cuff. Easy to use velcro closures on storm flaps. Both the jacket and bib have 50g of Thermadex insulation to provide additional warmth and separation barriers for more comfort.
Available in Safety Red in women's sizes 6-18. The full suit shown is the Men's model.

SUREFLOTE is made from expanded low density polyethylene foam that traps air in closed cells constructed into multi-layer membranes to create internal air pockets for added buoyancy. The SUREFLOTE membrane is moisture resistant and provides superior user mobility and added protection in the extreme cold. The combined jacket and pant/bib with SUREFLOTE provide flotation assistance for up to two hours for an average person. SUREFLOTE is designed to provide added buoyancy to a person's body weight for flotation assistance. An average sized adult needs 7-12 lbs of buoyancy to keep their head afloat. Suits with the SUREFLOTE system are designed to provide approximately 10-12 lbs of buoyancy depending on size and style.
Important: SUREFLOTE is Not Coast Guard Approved. This item is not approved by the Coast Guard as a personal flotation device or life preserver. SUREFLOTE may be rendered ineffective in adverse conditions such as strong water currents. The SUREFLOTE system does not protect against hypothermia in extreme cold water.
