The Descent features Stohlquist's® Wrapture® shaped torso. Foam cells are hand shaped to follow the body's natural curves, then beveled to remove blocky edges. Next, the foam cells are deeply slip to wrap softly about the torso and the outer shell assembled around them. The result is a buoyancy aid like no other!
