Overview

The new Switlik X-Back Air Crew Vest is a quantum leap in comfort and durability over its predecessors. Specifically designed for constant wear in the seated position in your helicopter or fixed wing aircraft. It's the vest you'll forget you're wearing.

The aptly named X-Back is ergonomically fitted to your shoulder contour for a perfect fit. As accessories are added the weight is distributed over your shoulders and off your neck for vastly improved comfort. The adjustable X-Back straps provide enough range making it one size fits all.

A unique proprietary interior cell folding technique combined with our open V-Neck design removes the bulk from your neck and chest to avoid interference with helmet and safety restraints.

The MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment) system lets you customize your vest with the accessories you need. The contoured cut of the MOLLE side panels locates the accessories away from your midsection providing more room for shoulder and lap belts. The new Switlik MOLLE System is the most comfortable way to carry your gear.

The Switlik Zipper closure keeps your inflatable vest secure at all times. The simple reliable dual breakaway design provides immediate inflation when activated. Backup oral inflation tubes are conveniently located on either side of the vest and easily reached through the side access flaps.

The exterior cover is constructed from a blended Nomex®/Kevlar® Rip-stop weave fabric. The material is extremely soft and comfortable to wear. The Kevlar component provides excellent durability, while the Nomex gives you the in-cockpit fire protection you want.

High visibility red beaded handles are found on both sides of the vest making for simple activation. They incorporate a breakaway safety feature to prevent snagging.
