Boarding Party Life Jacket NSN 4220661525498 SOS-9939LB

Availability: In stock




SOS Boarding Party load bearing life jacket vest is well suited for high-risk tactical situations. The life jacket is designed to fit over body armour and have pockets and pouches designed to suit the mission profile. Firearm holsters may also be built into the vest during manufacture.

The high tempo of board and search operations conducted by the Royal Australian Navy in the Gulf has presented it’s own problems. SOS Marine’s response is SOS-9939, an operationally evolved boarding vest using two manual gas inflation heads and over-pressure valve, providing protection for the floatation bladder. This additional feature suits the operational environment allowing a team member having gone overboard and been retrieved, is then required to continue on until completion of the mission.
