The Compact Damage Tolerant Life Preserver (DTLP) provides an inflatable life-saving product that provides full function even after a direct hit from a firearm or ballistic fragmentation with 65lbs of buoyancy when fully deployed. (US Patent 6,453,840, Canadian Patent 2,392,416)

This extreme level of buoyancy compensates for nearly all configurations of personal equipment and small arms carried on missions. The DTLP's one-size-fits-all design integrates with almost any tactical vest or armor plate carrier that uses Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE) system.

The four-point attachment system incorporates side release buckles to permit emergency doffing of the life preserver and allows quick-release vests to fall away.

The MD4035 FR DTLP incorporates manually activated inflators and is designed primarily for rotary-wing aircrew conducting operations in extreme or hostile environments. The protective cover is made from flame resistant Cordura™.

The MD4035 FR comes standard with two Kevlar® ballistic pouches (P/N MA4050).
