This is the Ergofit 40 Pro. This is an auto inflate PFD by Crewsaver. It's Coast Guard approved. It has the manual inflate down here for the CO2 cartridge and has a traditional auto inflator here with an indicator window. Right now it's showing green, so the canister's ready to fire. If it were red, I'd need to service this. You can see that this has a 3D profile. That's one of the signature features of this vest that it wants to fit the body and stay snug. Some of the other features, this has a built in harness with tether attachments. We've got a double buckle here. The bladder is inside this housing using a zipper that's easy to reset. If you need to access that, and manually open this up, and take a look at it, there are three places on the vest that you can do that.
As I get into this, what I feel fairly immediately is it just wants to fall onto my shoulders and around my chest in a molded way. I've got double buckles here to keep it close to the chest so there's less chance of snagging. If I had the optional crotch straps, they would attach back here, run through my legs, and up to here to keep this down right in a comfortable place.
I've gone ahead and inflated this vest using the oral inflator here. If it auto inflates and it's a little bit too tight around, you can just release a little air. Right here I've got a safety whistle I can deploy. I've got reflective tapes and I also have this area here which is designed where you can attach a strobe or an AIS device. I could attach another strobe here using a wraparound strap. Pretty comfortable. Again, if I had the crotch straps, the optional ones attached, that would keep it down out of my face and keep me more buoyant. Then again, my adjustments in back, I can adjust those in the water. These are pretty easy to get to. This is the Ergofit 40 Pro.
