📣We won’t let a little thing like another LOCKDOWN get us DOWN

Published on October 21, 2021

Another year, another lockdown!

🎢What a rollercoaster year we’ve had so far, we thought 2020 was a year like no other……..2021 sure showed us!

We are now feeling super lucky that we got to head up to beautiful Queensland for Land Forces and just scraped in our stint at Rotor Tech.  We loved catching up with everyone and being part of the buzz and excitement that goes along with major events like those! And then 💥LOCKDOWN!

Avalon Air Show cancelled, till 2023!  We wonder what that will bring?

The great news is that we, here at Red Baron ALSE are forging ahead doing what we love to do, so on that note, let’s talk about a product that we sell, custom fit, service and repair.

If you work in aviation, on water or enjoy these things recreationally then, you’ll want to keep on reading.

As many of you know we at Red Baron ALSE are proud partners and distributers of Switlik products and as the Switlik Technical Advisor for the Australian Government and Defence Forces, we know what we’re talking about.

So, let’s talk dry suits, specifically the Switlik U-Zip-ItTM Anti-Exposure Dry Suit.

There are so many reasons to love this product. Things like, the unique U-Zip-ItTM low slung entry zipper designed to make it easy to get on, zip up and wear all day. When talking dry-suits those that wear them know that comfort is all about zipper placement and the U-Zip-ItTM suit has got this sorted. Zipper placement on this suit was designed to make any necessary movements with no interference with the zip, creating the most comfortable dry-suit. Plus the articulated knee, seat and elbows are made from abrasion resistant (no rips) heavy duty Nomex®/Kevlar® fabric keeping you moving and protected during even the most difficult tasks. An internal suspend system allows the wearer to remove the torso section (tie it around your waist, like the cool kids do), so you’re standing by ready to go at any second.

When fully zipped the X_Back suspenders allows the suit to move without any sagging or binding. Where Switlik products are concerned you know that’s not all, a flame-resistant shawl protects the neck seal and an internal Nomex® neck guard gives added comfort, as well as flame-resistant wrist seal over-cuffs.  They have thought of everything!

This suit is custom tailored to fit you perfectly, right down to your foot size and there are unisex relief zippers, for you know, when nature calls! It truly is the dry-suit you can and will want to wear all day.

Why am I telling you all of this, well yes, we sell these – but we also custom fit, service and repair them.  These suits are made to last and can be customised over and over again. We custom tailor to fit you perfectly, chest size, hip, sitting inseam, sleeve length and neck size.  All you need to do is follow our simple measuring instructions and we are able to reproduce a fully customised suit – all the way down to your feet.  Each suit comes with CWU-75P stretch PTFE breathable laminate socks to keep your feet dry and are easy to slip into any footwear.

We can also hire them out for single use if and when required.  Fully customised to fit you.

I wonder what 2022 will bring……actually I’m wondering what November will bring…..because at this point, anything is possible!

Yours in safety,
