The Personal Sea Survival System

The PS³ Personal Sea Survival System has been developed by SRG International as a unique combination of a SOLAS life jacket integrated with an auto-inflating single person life raft packaged into an ultra-slim, detachable, lightweight backpack. Weighing only 5.0 Kilos and designed for comfort wear, it provides ensured survival at all times and in all weathers and sea-states.


The automatic inflation lifejacket is designed for simplicity of wear and operation, with a front zip closure and separate side adjustment. It is designed for adult use with one- size- fits -all and a low profile style cover. It remains comfortable and unrestrictive when used as a constant wear lifejacket. The inflatable bladder is manufactured from tough ISO12402-7 approved PU coated nylon using high visibility yellow textile. The outer cover is available in wipe-clean PVC in high visibility yellow with optional Ships Wheel marked SOLAS approved retro-reflective stitching & tape applied for extra visibility in low light conditions. Alternative colours for the outer cover are available.

The entire ensemble is of a low maintenance design and is fully approved to the latest 2010 SOLAS regulations.

For private, non-commercial customers, we also offer the option of a PS³ with a USCG approved vest. This option avoids the SOLAS maintenance compliance requirements.
