Stearns ISS-590i Cold Water Immersion

Stearns ISS-590i Cold Water Immersion Suit

Full adult universal immersion suits. I have 7 suits, bought for the entire crew when my grandfather did offshore races. I have grown far too large for these universal 110lb-330lb sized suits (I am 6'6" tall and 360lbs) and want to sell all of them to raise money for a new roller furler.

I'd like to get $150 each. New, these ran $480.

The name of the original vessel will be blacked out and you will have to identify your vessel as per the USCG requirements.

Details:
Designed for the most severe offshore conditions. Features include 100% neoprene construction, face shield that allows 120 unrestricted vision, waterproof zipper, attached full-finger gloves, marine whistle, light pocket, retro-reflective materials front and back. Suit is International Safety Orange and is still in its original orange storage bag. European MED approved and complies with SOLAS 74/96.

body weight 110 to 330 lbs.
max. height 6'3"

Hi James,

What year were these suits purchased new, and where/how have then been stored?

Shane

Re: Stearns ISS-590i Cold Water Immersion

Hello Shane,

I had the suits inspected by Underwater Sports to make sure the materials were still in good condition. And they are. But the manufacture date is '88.

When they weren't on the boat for a race (never used) they were stored in a cabinet inside the house with some sails and line. And inside thier dry
bags of course.

Because of the manufacture date though I'd actually take $60ea or $250 for the remaining 5 I have left.

Re: Stearns ISS-590i Cold Water Immersion

All of the suits have been sent out. Sorry, I thought I had posted this after shipping them out.

Thank you for your interest and I apologize if I didn't get back to some of you with a heads up either way.

Here's to never needing to use any survival suits. 🍻
