Life Preservers

VIKING YouSafe™ Crew

The VIKING YouSafe™ Crew is a cutting-edge combat gear inspired lifejacket designed especially for helicopter pilots. As lightweight, ergonomic and comfortable as possible, it offers a snug fit, enabling maximum maneuverability for the pilot’s upper body while providing the right support in both emergency situations and during extended wear.

The VIKING YouSafe™ Crew ­has easily accessible adjustment girths, even when the pilot is sitting, for essential comfort and safety. The VIKING YouSafe™ Crew­ is made from­ fire retardant CORDURA® material and it has redistributed weight from the neck to the torso and waist areas in order to prevent neck strain. The fabric of this lifejacket is very tightly braided and that allows for multiple pocket placement options.


This lifejacket is available in both universal size and oversize to ensure better fit. It comes with various STASS systems. Furthermore, it has a sprayhood, an emergency light, a whistle, buddy line, lifting becket and detachable personal pockets.

Key features:

  • Halkey Roberts® manual inflation system (buoyancy chamber can be manually or orally inflated)
  • Made of fire retardant CORDURA® material
  • Easily accessed adjusters
  • Integrated sprayhood
  • Option for PLB
  • Emergency light, whistle, buddy line and lifting becket
  • Multiple pocket placement options

Harness straps 


To keep the life preserver down, hence preventing it from this irritating crawling up, our small and inexpensive Harness Straps can be attached to the life preservers Molle- or braid system. By doing so, neither the life preservers Solas/EASA certification nor the hoist harness EC Type Certification will be breached. A simple solution to an all to common problem.
