Select just the vest, or add ERI's hand picked survival equipment to the vest's pockets, then add the Aircrew Life Preserver System (ALPS) Flotation Collar for fights over water. Purchase any combination of the vest, survival equipment or flotation collar for a custom order.


The vest offers a guaranteed way to keep survival gear close at hand during an emergency; by keeping it connected to your body at all times.  Designed around the ERI Light Aircraft Survival Kit, this Vest combines unparalleled customization with durability and comfort.  The Vest Supports the Molle Pocket system for carrying a variety of items in an almost infinite number of custom pockets and add-on features available from other vendors.  ERI’s vest comes in two sizes: Small/Medium, which fits smaller framed individuals and expands out to an approximate 42 inch male chest size; and, the Large/Extra Large which fits size 44 inch chests and larger.
