C-1 Survival Vest History In June of 1943, work began on a new and unique survival kit in form of a wearable vest. By December, 1943, 3,000 vests designated as 'Vest Type Emergency Kit' were procured for combat testing by the Fifth, Tenth, Eleventh, Fourteenth Air Forces, and The Air Transport Command. Testing was also conducted in Florida from January to June 1944. The vest were covered by Specification 3206, established on January 11, 1944, and was standardized on May 3, 1944. By December 1944, 200,000 Type C-1 vests were on order with 16,000 units already delivered. The vest weighed 11 pounds with all components, it was designated to replace the Back-Pad kits.This kit saw some use during WWII, and was used in the Korean war, by both Air Force, and Navy pilots & air crewmen. Small amounts were later modified, with newer components for service in the Vietnam War!
