Sorry Pete - wasn't very clear on my part. Ours are manual inflate with foam bouyancy. No problem evac'ing from under ILB (uninflated) but the same jacket is not suitable in the helo, presumably because you could be further under the water-> greater upthrust from foam portion.


(PS- Hi Cork Rib, hope you well!!)
