The Aegir - 38 was designed to incorporate BCs (buoyancy compensators) as well as emergency flotation located in the cummerbund which provides:
• 45lbs (20kg/ 200n) positive flotation in seawater at a depth of 33’(10m)
• 57lbs (25kg/253n) of positive flotation at a depth of 15’(4.5m)
• 73lbs(33kg/324n) of flotation at the surface
Buoyancy Compensators (BC’s) can be installed in a mesh pocket behind the plate pockets. BC’s offer a minimum of 10LBS of lift per set in size M-XL Swimmer Cut vests. BC’s are user configured for either left or right-hand operators. When inflated they can provide airflow channels to cool the operator as well as some weight distribution. During independent testing in support of NAVSEA, the BC’s reduced back face deformation significantly when inflated.
