Switlik U-Zip-It - Anti-Exposure Helicopter Suit

  • Used exclusively by the U.S. Coast Guard helicopter aircrew

  • "The U-Zip-It™ is a breathable, fire resistant dry suit which provides ultimate comfort and mobility for aviators, along with the highest level of cold water immersion protection. The low slung zipper makes donning easier than standard designs and the articulating elbow and knee patches significantly improves movement – in and out of the aircraft." - Vertical Magazine.

  • The unique U-Zip-It™ low slung entry zipper design provides ease of donning, unassisted zipper closure, enhanced comfort, and freedom of movement. In dry-suits, the zipper placement dictates comfort. The design of the U-ZIP-IT™ dry-suit was based around allowing the user to make any necessary movement with zero interference with the zipper, creating the most comfortable dry-suit.
