LIFT / Protective vest for snowsports

LIFT
LIFT

"Lift" is a protective vest for the recreationist in winter backcountry terrain. It is design is focused on increasing the time of survival after an avalanche by creating an air cavity, keeping the victims head on top of the snow if possible and protecting the user against the potential dangers of a trauma during the activity.

Since the popularity of winter sports are increasing, need for a straightforward, light and relatively cheap protection equipment is becoming a more important issue. Therefore, "Lift" takes only the necessary precautions to reach and protect a wider user group.
