LPU-40 Flotation Collar


The LPU-40 is the specified flotation collar used in
the US Army’s Air Warrior program. It attaches to
vests and harnesses using the MOLLE system, and
the outer casing is made from fire retardant fabrics.
A single, beaded inflation lanyard is pulled once to
inflate both CO2 cylinders which provides a
minimum of 65 lbs. of buoyancy. The bladder
has a two chamber design to allow buoyancy in
the event that there is damage to either side of the
bladder. Either chamber can be orally inflated in the
event of an emergency. The unique bladder design
incorporates arm straps and a cinch strap, which
improve the flotation position of the user.
