Quiksilver Highline Airlift Vest
The Highline Airlift Vest sets a new safety standard for big wave surfers, a CO2-powered inflation vest, that aims to lift surfers who fall on big waves. Quiksilver partnered with diving equipment manufacturer Aqua Lung to develop an inflatable flotation device. A culmination of years worth of research and development, the neoprene vest utilizes carbon-dioxide cartridges to help bring the wearer to the surface in heavy hold-down situations. It features four different pull tabs that inflate the vest, one release tab to deflate the vest, and it can both be worn on its own in warm water environments or comfortably over a wetsuit in cold weather climates.
