The Arctic 25 by White Glacier: a needed survival suit when sailing, working or cruising in cold waters!

The icy Arctic ocean can be an unpredictable force of Nature: capsizing, onboard fires and irreparable damages to your vessel are just a few of the many risks you can face while sailing, working, exploring or cruising in cold waters. In the event crews must evacuate, their only reprieve may be jumping from several meters high from the ship deck into the “icy” waters…where you may need to endure for hours the freezing elements until rescue arrives…

White Glacier’s Arctic 25 cold water survival suits (see below pictures and videos) will protect you against hypothermia for more than 25 hours compared to the 6-hour industry standard! Wearing such immersion suit in any cold waters is certainly the best defense against hypothermia!  

Did you know that if your body drops to 30° C or less, you have the bad chance to become unconscious and drown. At a core body temperature of 28 to 27° C, cardiac arrest sets in and at 26 to 24° C, hypothermia becomes fatal!

I am waiting to one day test it in high-latitude waters and see how comfortable one may be with the Arctic 25 survival suit!

“… The Arctic 25 Cold Water Immersion Suit is the most advanced thermal protective aid on the market. It helps turn victims into survivors by more than quadrupling IMO requirements, shielding the affects of hypothermia for 25-hours or more. Unlike other leading suits, which require up to two minutes to don, the Arctic 25 Cold Water Immersion Suit can be partially donned in 15 seconds and fully donned in under a minute – cutting the time needed to evacuate in half. The Arctic 25 is pioneered to perfectly balance protection with functionality, providing survivors with remarkable safety from direct contact with fire, jumps exceeding 10-meters, all while enabling the freedom to eat or drink, attend to hygienic tasks, or administer first aid once in the water… read more under http://www.whiteglacier.com/ “.
