R3 – Rescuer version 3 is the latest version of our highly successful 25-year-old water rescue PFD, the Rescuer. The Rescuer PFD model launched Force 6 as a worldwide water rescue PFD manufacturer. Force 6 designed the Rescuer as a heavy-duty, high-buoyancy PFD made for swimming in aerated water. This PFD is tough enough to bounce off trees, self-rescue, and save others in harsh environments. Public safety teams around the world have trusted the Rescuer for decades. This PFD has undoubtedly been deployed to more major flood events than any PFD on the market. The new R3 proudly preserves all the features of the Rescuer, and it adds a heavy-duty molle platform skin that gives teams/rescuers the ability to build their own rig. The R3 has hundreds of configuration options.
R3 is a water rescue vest designed for rescue professionals involved in boat and shore operations – medium to high-risk swift water environments.
Sizing – When putting on your R3, be sure to take in and hold a full breath of air as you adjust the straps.
