Coast Guard Alaska Season 2: Switlik Employees bursting with pride as their hard work gets national attention

Switlik U Zip It in the Weather Channel's Coast Guard AlaskaWith a successful season one of Coast Guard Alaska, the Weather Channel is at it again showing grueling action packed rescue missions of the USCG rescue team Kodiak, AK for a second season.  Coast Guard Alaska, which follows a team of Coast Guard swimmers and rescue pilots stationed in Kodiak, AK, as they train and implement strategies to save lives while battling harsh, icy weather conditions.  The show has hit home with all employees at Switlik as they see their hard work put to use with a screen full of  bright orange Anti Exposure Dry Suits worn by the pilots and crew members.  The Switlik U-ZIP-IT Dry Suit has been the suit of choice by the USCG for over seven years and due to its bright color is seen by every employee at the Trenton, NJ factory as it travels through the production line.  Filmed over the brutal winter months of Alaska, the new season is packed full of footage of the Dry Suits.  As a product manufacturer its invaluable to get an hour a week of product demonstrations and candid live feedback as the suits go through a vigorous range of activities.

When designing the suits we understood that the teams would be wearing them for extended periods of time which led to our core focus in making the dry suits incredibly comfortable to wear.  After watching season one and the start to season two of Coast Guard Alaska we are very confident that the design philosophy  and how we intended our suits to be worn is precisely how the experts at the USCG station Kodiak Alaska use them.

Join the Switlik team in showing their support to the brave members of the Coast Guard by tuning in to the weather channel on Wednesday nights at 9pm.
