Hyde Wingman Features – Hyde Sportswear

Years worth of research, development, and testing culminated in the Wingman, the world’s thinnest and most versatile inflation vest and the first inflatable life jacket designed for high performance in water activities like surfing and swimming. The Wingman utilizes Hyde’s patented innovations to usher in a new era of water safety, where life jackets no longer inhibit performance and range of motion but rather enhance it.

The Wingman is the only US Coast Guard approved inflatable life jacket with a built in hydration sleeve allowing you to insert a hydration bladder into the vest.

  1. Sari C.

    Awesome product! I kayak and free dive with this on and it’s a great fit! The wingman vest is super comfortable and also allows me to have my GoPro vest over as well! Thanks to all the people at HYDE! -Layne Riley

  2. Casian

    First of all, this jacket is amazing!I recived it in a week and as you can see in the picture that’s everything that come with it…I was in constant contact with HYDE and everything arrived as asked (they even gave me the 3 ambasadors stickers because I asked for it).The only problem I had is with the shipping, because when UPS arrived at my door, I had the surprise to pay some 113$ additional border taxes because it came from USA to Canada. To conclude, it was kind of expensive for me because I am from Canada (~450$ CAD). Nevertheless, I can’t wait to wear it in the waters of Canada.Have fun all with this amazing vest!

    My honest review is coming from a spearfishing .. free-diving standpointThe vest works very goodthe waist buckles it’s restricting my breathingI wish if they used rubber waist beltsRemoving air completely to use it properly while i dive without being floty is extremely hard … having a zero air in the vest is necessary is to avoid adding weights which could be extremely dangerous in deep dives under 10m …The vest is too close to my neck i have really small neck btw … and its really annoying when i dive only… if i raised my hand while i dive its like it cut my neck blood circulation …I wish if they added 2 zippers instead of 1 … it will make packing the vest easierThe hole vest need to be redesigned To be free-diving life vest friendlyI know its not advertised for that but still …____________The last thing they dont ship it outside the us which is really bad i had to use shop and ship to get it to Saudi Arabia

  4. Stone Shipes

    Only issue is the pull cord is stuck cause it was stitched to the vest seem. Easy to undo but idk how the process goes, Dont stitch with loose material lol

  5. Zachary

    Comfortable to wear

  6. clifford budelman

    , one size does not fit all , it is small size , took about 8 days for seller to contact me , miss communications , I spoke to seller who stood behind their product and promtly returned purchase price, Hyde Wingman was made very well, just didn’t fit my size 6 ft 2 in

  7. William johnson

    Fits good

  8. marvin edwards

    Great life jacket and very low profile. What you see is what you get.

  9. Madfire Ink

    Dealt with seller with issue but love the product. The first one came in with wrong size co2 cylinder that would not fit the jacket the thread on the rig was smaller than needed and the co2 cylinder was the right size but the rigs guts were made wrong but sent back to seller and got a new one that has no issue.

  10. NetMagi

    First one I received had the wrong size threads on it for a the CO2 cylinder. They sent another vest immediately.I wear this while river snorkeling. I haven’t ‘needed’ it yet, but I forget I’m even wearing it, and like knowing if I get a cramp or get pulled too far in a current I can pull the cord and float without effort.
