~SOLD~ LUFTWAFFE FIGHTER PILOTíS 10-30B LIFE VEST.

LUFTWAFFE FIGHTER PILOTíS 10-30B LIFE VEST (Luftschwimmweste)

Rubberized, yellow canvas construction, pneumatic flotation life vest. The vest has a central front vertical opening with two; horizontal canvas closure straps positioned on the left breast panel with corresponding canvas reinforced securing rings positioned on the right breast panel. The upper left breast bladder has a vertical, black rubber, manual, inflation tube. The manual inflation tube is held in place by a horizontal canvas loop, which places the mouthpiece near the wearerís mouth for ease of inflation. The bottom edge of the left breast bladder has a metal alloy and brass connecting port housing designed for the cylindrical pressurized air canister which would automatically inflate the bladders. The canister is present. The bottom edge of the life vest has a tapering, vertical canvas strap stitched to the reverse center with corresponding canvas reinforced securing rings positioned on the bottom edge of the front center which was intended to slip between the wearers legs so that the vest didnít slip upwards. The interior upper back panel of the vest is well marked as pictured. The vest is in overall good condition with stains. The bladder is very brittle and cracking but as it is an internal piece does not distract from the vest. An extremely hard to find item.
