When I started to look into it online today, I couldn't find any indication it is USCG approved, and it doesn't even appear on the Revere website. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has experience with this unit.
I heard back from Defender earlier in the week about the Revere RescueMax MOB recovery system, and am just getting around to updating on it.

They said it does NOT carry any USCG approval as a PFD or throwable device. This significantly dampens my interest, but I would still like to hear from anyone who has experience with it or knows more about it. I'll try a separate thread in the Gear forum.
