X-Back Basic Air Crew Vest

Thin. Light. Comfortable. Durable. Safe.

We have expanded our successful X-Back life vest line to include the new X-Back Basic.  The X-Back Basic incorporates the same fit, adjustment and overall comfort users have come to expect from the Switlik X-Back, with the addition of two permanently attached all-in-one pockets in lieu place of the MOLLE vest attachment loops. This new vest is intended to be a modern version of SWITLIK’s previous HV-35 Helicopter Vest. This vest is for users who do not need the MOLLE system and all its accessories. The pockets attached to the vest are intended to fit your essentials “keys, phone, sunglasses & wallet” (and yes, the newest smart phones will fit!)

The X-Back Basic vest includes:

  •  FR Nomex®/Kevlar® cover (cobalt blue)
  • Dual-opening zipper closure
  • Beaded inflation handle
  • X-Back adjustment system
  • Two 18g CO2 cylinder inflation
  • Over 35lbs of Buoyancy
