The Switlik X-Back™ Air Crew Vest is a newly configured, lightweight crew vest that provides a high level of comfort and durability.

Specifically designed for constant wear in the seated position in your helicopter or fixed wing aircraft. Accessories can be mounted on the sides rather than midsection allowing more room for shoulder and lap belts. As accessories are added, their weight is distributed on the shoulders and off the neck, greatly increasing comfort for the wearer. FAA TSO-C13D approved.
