Wingman is 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 allows users to push themselves and perform their best while knowing that safety is just one pull away, it’s more than a life jacket, it’s your Wingman.
The entrepreneur claims that the Wingman is covered by patents regarding the placement of the CO2 device and the type and placement of the securing zipper that allows the harness to lie flat.

The Pop provides extra peace of mind when caring for your newborn. When it lands in their crib or baby seat the nipple stays popped out and ready for baby. When it takes a larger tumble to the floor, the nipple pops back—saving it from unwanted surface contact.
The pacifier comes in four or five different colors and is aimed at babies between newborns and six months old.
Once baby is starting to put things in their mouth themselves, your baby is ready to transition to the Pop & Go pacifier. The Pop & Go firmly locks in the extended position which gives you better control of when the nipple is available for your active baby.
