This is the Crewfit 35 Sport US Coast Guard approved PFD. It's an inflatable. It is by Crewsaver. This is available in a couple of different options, three different colors to choose from. It is also available in a automatic inflate which this one is. It has an auto inflator inside here, or a manual where you just pull the tab. Of course whether manual or auto, they all have the manual inflate right here. If you wanted to check the status of the auto inflator and the Co2 cartridge, you need to actually open this up to do that inspection. Let's see. Let me just go ahead and slide this on. Simple entry, single buckle here, and then I've got adjustment on the side.
It's pretty easy to release this. Just pull on the red tab here. If I needed to inspect the life vest on the inside, I've got this point here and this point here. All I have to do is pull the teeth apart, open it up, and I can check out the canister. I've gone ahead and inflated the vest using the oral inflator. If this were to go off automatically and it's a little too tight, you can just lose a little there. Some of the features with this, just starting with the auto inflator here. The manual portion if I were to pull this, this green would fall off and turn red. That tells me when it's green that the Co2 cartridge is still good. Then the green down here tells me that the auto inflator has not gone off, and it's still good. I've got green and green here.
I've got a safety whistle right here. It has reflective tape in three places. I've got this area here with an attachment point so I could put an AIS on here. I could put a strobe and then strap a traditional strobe around here. If I were to buy optional crotch straps, I would put those on in the back, run them down and through, attach them in the front. Pull the vest down, and that's going to keep me up higher in the water. Without them, the vest tends to come up a bit. Then there's also an optional spray hood that would be kept here on the side and I could pull that over top if I were in some rough conditions and having a little tough time with water in the face and being able to breathe freely.
