It is known that falling into cold water can be a killer both through hypothermia and through dragging a person down into cold water. Those traveling over and near cold water have to face that risk, since not wearing sufficiently warm clothes is just as bad over longer periods of time out of the water.

This design for winter clothes would incorporate a comfortable near-wetsuit as underwear and velcro for the outer garments. Upon falling in the water, given a little practice, the user would be able to doff the garments in a few seconds and swim to safety. Optional: a life vest with a CO2 cartridge, which inflates when the clothes are hastily torn off only if the temperature is low.

Sure, nobody ever thought of anything even remotely like this before .... Mummy_20Wetsuit
No, really, I mean it. This has got to be an original idea - I'm even voting (+) for it ! [normzone, Nov 10 2017]

       Did you fall in the pool again on the Alaska cruise? I told you about drinking Everclear on the Lido deck...

       The Canadian police are dressed for all eventualities and actually have a uniform almost identical to the idea. This allows the police to go from visible policing to the full mountie in no time at all.
