Striker Duck Blind Sureflote Jacket
New from Striker Brands is the Sureflote jacket and bibs sporting Striker's proprietary Duck Blind camo. It's called the Sureflote because of the Sureflote™ flotation assist system. If you happen to go into the drink you have a fighting chance with the Sureflote™. We put as much flotation material in this suit as in any other that we offer. And to keep the chill out, we added 50g of Thermadex insulation. Of course these features do you no good if you are soaking wet, so the Striker Duck Blind Sureflote Jacket and Bibs have a 320D poly-tricot blend synthetic shell that is waterproof and breathable meeting a whopping 5,000mm/5,000gr standard using our Hydrapore™ system. In addition, all seams are fully PU taped to prevent leakage through any stitched seams. This outfit has no reflective elements to spook your prey. Last but not least, we use waterproof zippers on all exposed exterior zippers. If you are seeking a premium performance suit that gets you through all types of inclement weather that looks great too, check out the Duck Blind Sureflote suit. It will keep you in the hunt a lot longer!

HYDRAPORE is a high performance waterproof/breathable PU laminate that is built into the outer shell fabric. HYDRAPORE system technology is specifically designed to provide maximum protection against extreme weather elements. HYDRAPORE has a superior 5000mm/5000g/m2 rating for resisting water penetration and for breathability. Please note that the rate at which W/B laminate systems expel moisture vapor is variable with external temperature.
Thermadex brand thermal insulation is designed for use in outdoor active wear where light weight, superior insulating performance and minimal loft is required. Thermadex provides a high level of warmth in active applications such as in alpine skiing, snow boarding, snowmobiling and nordic skiing. Thermadex provides warmth, softness and breathability without the bulk.

SUREFLOTE is made from expanded low density polyethylene foam that traps air in closed cells constructed into multi-layer membranes to create internal air pockets for added buoyancy. The SUREFLOTE membrane is moisture resistant and provides superior user mobility and added protection in the extreme cold. The combined jacket and pant/bib with SUREFLOTE provide flotation assistance for up to two hours for an average person. SUREFLOTE is designed to provide added buoyancy to a person's body weight for flotation assistance. An average sized adult needs 7-12 lbs of buoyancy to keep their head afloat. Suits with the SUREFLOTE system are designed to provide approximately 10-12 lbs of buoyancy depending on size and style.
Important: SUREFLOTE is Not Coast Guard Approved. This item is not approved by the Coast Guard as a personal flotation device or life preserver. SUREFLOTE may be rendered ineffective in adverse conditions such as strong water currents. The SUREFLOTE system does not protect against hypothermia in extreme cold water.
This garment features our exclusive fast-drain hems (patent pending). These are built in mesh drains on the bottom hem and cuffs of the jacket and on the bottom leg of the bibs. This feature allows any built up excess moisture trapped inside the shell to escape, even if the garment is hanging on a hook in your closet. Even our premium waterproof/breathable shells take some time to expel trapped body moisture, particularly in very cold temperatures. Just imagine what kind of yuk can accumulate between the layers in a lower-end flotation suit. But even more important, these mesh drains allow for the quick exit of any water taken on if you go in the drink. Consider the extra effort involved if you are carrying an extra 5 gallons of water with you as you try to crawl out onto the ice. Our drains provide an added sense of security knowing that you will not get bogged down wearing this suit.
Striker Brands uses a Warmth Rating Indicator to provide information regarding the relative warmth of our garments. Since every person is different and reacts differently to the cold, this indicator can be a valuable tool in selecting a suitable garment. A garment with a rating of 6 is our highest rated garment. Remember that garments with SUREFLOTE will provide increased protection in extreme conditions. Also note that proper base layering will greatly increase the performance of any outdoor suit.
