The OPR comes standard with four (4) high-capacity rapidly deploying weight ballast bags. The water pockets provide weight to the raft to keep it stable during entry and exit. The OPR is also upgradable to the full wrap around Torodial Stability Device (TSD). The Switlik TSD provides superior stability and has been proven by the USCG, the RAAF as well as other SAR Organizations worldwide, to be the best option for keeping a raft stable and upright during all conditions including the helicopter.
This professional grade raft is packed with advanced features which set it apart from any other rafts in the market. For both the soft valise and hard container options, the Switlik OPR provides the first of its kind 5 year service interval. This extended service offering is accomplished in a responsible manner through the combined use of Switlik’s patented, US military service tested and proven, reduced volume hermetically sealed packaging system and compressed air-charged inflation system with a visible "Go! / No Go" pressure gauge. The gauge is positioned to be easily visible through a viewing window in both the soft valise or the hard container packaging, meaning you can rest easy knowing the raft is charged and ready to deploy. No other rafts available today offers you the same level of safety assurance or value.
