Inflation of the Jacket. This is a manual inflation jacket and should only ever be inflated by the wearer outside the aircraft, so as not to hinder exit. The Pro Lifejacket has a bright yellow polyurethane-coated nylon stole, which is contained, folded, inside the codura cover that is closed by a burst-zip. This keeps the inflatable fabric protected until needed. A simple tug on the CO2 cylinder (33 gs) ring pull-immediately inflates the stole and bursts open the zip. After pulling the toggle, the jacket inflates within seconds. The Pro is buoyant to 170 Newtons, which is suitable for severe conditions. Once inflated, the patented Interlock Bladder automatically rights the wearer to an upright body position and keeps the wearers head clear off the water. Wave Barrier Technology has been specifically designed into the bladder, this feature channels the water away from the wearers face. There are floatation chamber behind the neck as well as over the chest. To aid rescue the life jacket is fitted with strips of retro-reflective tape, an oral top-up valve, a whistle to attract attention, and a light activated by contact with water.
