Hyde developed and manufactures the Wingman, the first inflatable life jacket designed for swimmers, surfers, paddlers, and boaters.
It is the world’s thinnest and most versatile life jacket at less than 1 cm thick and is the only US Coast Guard certified life jacket sleek enough for swimmers to take in the water with them.
The Wingman has created an entirely new product category and is the first swimmers life jacket.
The USCG certification opens the Wingman to the mass market and will enable Hyde to cannibalize existing life jacket sales in the boating industry.
The Wingman boasts an endless array of optional features so that each user can customize the vest for his or her specific needs.
The blend of innovation, versatility, utility, and comfort make the Wingman the ideal water safety product and position Hyde perfectly to take advantage of a huge industry with a captive customer base that is starving for innovation.
