SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – White Glacier has launched an immersion suit that is said to exceed regulatory requirements in the US, Canada, and the European Union.
The Arctic 10+ enables its users to survive in extreme environmental conditions including on ice or in cold water. It complies with the five-day minimum survival time mandated by the Polar Code.
Made from a three-layer protective system, the new suit has an outside layer for abrasion resistance and flame protection. The middle layer offers a second level of flame protection, water tightness, and buoyancy. The third layer delivers a final level of flame protection as well as thermal protection.
The Arctic 10+ has been certified by the US Coast Guard, Transport Canada, and the European Union Marine Equipment Directive.
The new suit also features the Splash Tent, which allows users to eat, drink, perform first aid, or bodily functions while being protected from the wind, rain, or splashing from waves.
