RAPID EMERGENCY DEPLOYMENT SYSTEM R.E.D.S. was developed for RAPID Response SCUBA Diving, when time is critical and delayed 'suiting up' is not practical. Design features guarantee user front flotation and it is shaped to allow the rescuer to provide medical attention to a victim while towing fully inflated on the surface. The R.E.D.S. was engineered with routing for all air hoses placed internally to reduce drag and any chance of entanglements. In addition to public safety purposes, this BCD also serves as a great system for kayaking or boating allowing quick and easy deployment.
