Abandoning a capsized or sinking vessel in open water is a scenario professional mariners never want to face. Designed for commercial fishing, shipping, and offshore oil and gas crew, Kent Safety Products' USCG and USCG/SOLAS/MED Immersion Suits deliver superior protection from the elements for dramatically increasing the odds of survival.

Whether from air or sea, Kent Immersion Suits are designed to be seen. Built from 5mm flame-retardant, safety orange neoprene with SOLAS-grade reflective patches, no other company offers as much high-visibility yellow—the face mask, inflatable head pillow, three-fingered mitts and ankle adjustments all provide the contrast needed to be noticed from a distance.

Unlike the competition, the inflatable head pillow on a Kent Immersion Suit is positioned for maximum safety and freeboard, as it allows the wearer's head to be positioned higher in the water. It's also removable, making it easy to replace if damaged, and less expensive than an entire new suit.

An attached whistle, PLB pocket and attachment points are provided. The IMO RES 207(81) version includes a stainless steel lifting harness and instantly accessible buddy line with snap hook.

Conditions are typically less than ideal when abandoning ship. That's why Kent Immersion Suits are fast and easy to put on, even in low light and rough seas. They're generously cut and sized, and the gloves are positioned so the articulated sleeves turn at the elbow. The suits come in three sizes: intermediate for 110–250 lbs./5'–2" to 5'–10"; universal for 110–305 lbs./4'–11" to 6'–3"; and oversize for 250–350 lbs./6'–3" to 6'–10".

At Pacific Marine Expo, Nov. 16–18, Seattle, one lucky attendee will have a chance to outfit a crew of six with Immersion Suits by winning the "Outfit Your Boat" sweepstakes. Showgoers should stop by Kent's booth #620 to register.
