When at sea for work or leisure, there is always a chance that you will find yourself falling overboard or abandoning a sinking vessel. You could be a crew member onboard an ocean liner, Coast Guard personnel, recreational boater, commercial fisherman, rescue personnel working on ice or even a pilot forced to evacuate an aircraft over water. Once overboard the chances of surviving are dependent on the temperature of the water and having the proper protective clothing.

Between 2 to 30 minutes after immersion, an un-insulated human body becomes incapacitated. A person may have difficulty swimming, lose functional abilities and manual dexterity, and experience muscle cramping. Unfortunately, swimming only speeds the onset of hypothermia.

An immersion suit, or survival suit, or ice rescue suit, is a special type of waterproof dry suit that protects the wearer from hypothermia from immersion in cold water, after abandoning a sinking or capsized vessel, especially in the open ocean or from falling through ice during a rescue attempt. They usually have built-on feet (boots), and a hood, and either built-on gloves or watertight wrist seals.
