    Default small survival suit

    I'm looking for a small child or toddler size survival suit. Does anyone know where to get one of these???

    They used to make a specific size, called Toddler, but I can't seem to find them on the website's of any of the major manufacturer's of survival or immersion suits.

    I have a "Child" size with a weight range of 44-110 pounds, but it is much too large for my 4 year old.

    I need to get a small suit for our commercial F/V if I want my kiddo on board so any help in locating a smaller suit would be VERY appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    James

    Have you tried Eagle Enterprises off of International. They carry a lot of that stuff.

    James,
    If you find something that fits toddlers, please share the info.

    Thanks,

    will do...

    apparently they used to make an infant size (no legs, just a bag with a hood and arms) but they haven't made them in 20 years. They were made by a company called Survival International. AMSEA in Sitka had a couple that I checked out yesterday. It sounds like the only hope of finding one to fit a really little tyke is to pick up a used one of these.

    They should work for your needs.

    Cool thank you,
    I also found out from AMSEA that Bayley Suit makes small survival suits as well. They come in toddler, small child, medium child, and large child. They are all hand made one at a time so you'll find that they are a little more pricey, but well worth the money and probably have a great resale value since there aren't many around.

    I really like the 2-5 year suit listed on Scandia's website. That suit seems to be the most versatile for what I would like to have, so I'm waiting to hear back from the company.

    Good looking suit though

    Has anyone found one?????

    Scandia doesn't sell them in small orders. The Bayley suit I can't find online anywhere.
