WHO WE ARE

First Watch Flotation Gear

When the call goes out for safety, comfort, durability, and design in personal marine protective gear – we’ll take the First Watch. Because the sea’s beauty and tranquility can quickly transform into a hostile and unforgiving environment, professional seamen know that the best flotation and protective garments can’t protect you when they’re stored in a locker when they’re needed most.

Testimonials

The guys love these suits! I can’t say enough about them. It was around -20 F on Tuesday when we got up to the lake and no one complained all day about the cold.
— T/Sgt. Tom Barden, Division Diving Officer, New York State Police
Thanks again for including me in your awesome products, can’t wait to see you guys become the industry leader!
— Keith Matthews, SFPD
Wore your gear yesterday during some surf testing I did with a wing boats — We where navigating in and out of the inlet with about 8 foot swells in a 4.7 inflatable with a 55 MFE — It was raining and blowing out of the NE at 20 knots — In short it was pretty nasty — Your gear kept me completely dry — It work great!
— Justin Antolini, BRP
I’ve had zero warranty complaints, and zero negative feedback. This leads me to push First Watch as a superior brand for commercial, military and recreational use. We have customers that range from swift water rescue teams, Ice rescue teams, Search and Rescue, harbor pilots, Law Enforcement and commercial mariners who will wear their PFD’s, floatation clothing, Ice suits etc. for countless hours and in severe conditions. All First Watch products have performed superbly. I personally own several products by First Watch and am extremely satisfied with the performance.
— Capt. Mark Bologna, Landfall Navigation
