    Questions about this item:

    Judith J  Need SAR vest to meet Civil Air Patrol requirements. Does this one fit the bill?
    KATHERINE E  I'm sorry, I don't know what the Civil Air Patrol requirements are, so I can't say whether it meets them. One of our biologists here at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service picked this out because it meets our requirements.
