INTRODUCING THE WINGMAN LIFE JACKET SYSTEM, WATER SAFETY RE-IMAGINED
Years worth of research, development, and testing culminated in the Wingman, the world’s thinnest and most versatile inflation vest and the first inflatable life jacket designed for high performance in water activities like surfing and swimming. The Wingman utilizes Hyde’s patented innovations to usher in a new era of water safety, where life jackets no longer inhibit performance and range of motion but rather enhance it. The Wingman allows users to push themselves and perform their best while knowing that safety is just one pull away, it’s more than a life jacket, it’s your Wingman.
INNOVATIVE DESIGNS ENGINEERED AND TESTED TO THE HIGHEST STANDARDS
The Hyde Development team knew that in order to truly revolutionize the water sports we love, the Wingman had to not only perform well but also needed to pass the testing standards set forth by the US Coast Guard. We are proud to say that the Wingman is USCG approved and provides the first meaningful innovation in USCG approved life jacket design in decades. The Wingman is the only surf inflation vest to receive US Coast Guard approval meaning customers can use it for surfing one day and paddling the next.
INFLATION TECHNOLOGY FOR ALL, THE FUTURE OF SURF SAFETY IS HERE
Professional surfers have enjoyed the benefits of inflation technology for years to keep them safe in the oceans heaviest conditions. We believe that this safety technology is not only useful in the world's biggest waves, but at the local breaks as well. We felt it was time to bring this technology to the masses and offer it at an affordable price.
We are proud to say that the Wingman offers the same safety benefits as the vests worn by the pros and retails at 1/5 of the price, safety isn't just for the pros anymore.
