Product Overview

Not for sale online in California.

Designed to keep you warm on the boat or in the water, the Challenger Anti-Exposure Work Suit from Stearns is the ultimate defense against cold water.

Stearns built this suit to withstand extreme cold while keeping you comfortable and buoyant. Heat is contained with adjustable ankle, thigh, and wrist straps while an insulated hood keeps out the wind and rain. Sealed seams also help keep the elements out and double layers of the durable nylon fabric prevent wear on your knees and seat for long days working in demanding environments.  Constructed from soft, lightweight PVC flotation foam offering wearers full range of motion and comfort.

An inflatable neck support keeps you afloat in case of an emergency while the 62 square inches of SOLAS-grade reflective material helps increase your visibility in the water. Easily take this suit on and off over work boots with the convenient waist belt and leg zippers.  Additional features include six large pockets, including two hand warmers, to keep your gear close.
