Quiksilver Highline Airlift Vest

Oct 12, 2017

With big wave surfers continuing to push the limits in their search for the largest waves on the planet, Quicksilver went ahead and teamed up Aqua Lung to help mitigate the very real dangers associated with this adrenaline-fueled reality.

Officially called the Highline Airlift Vest, this neoprene vest utilizes miniature carbon dioxide cartridges to help bring the surfer to the surface of the ocean in life-threatening hold-down situations following a wipeout. It features four different pull tabs that inflate the vest, one release tab to defeat the vest, and it can both be worn on its own in warm water environments or comfortably over a wetsuit in cold weather climates. It is worth noting that this is not designed as a performance-enhancing piece of equipment, and strict understanding of your personal limits and of the unforgiving ocean are strongly recommended no matter what. Available now in select stores in California, Hawaii, France, Portugal, and Australia.
