Anti-exposure suit

Anti-exposure suits are similar to immersion suits, but there are a few differences. They must provide at least 70 Newtons of buoyancy and be made of material that reduces the risk of heat stress during rescue and evacuation operations. Anti-exposure suits are provided with a lifejacket light and whistle and must be capable of turning a person in the water from face-down to face-up in not more that five seconds.
