Exclusive to Mustang Survival

Hydrostatic Technology

Hydrostatic pressure is applied to objects submerged in water. The new hydrostatic inflator needs only to be submerged 4 inches (10 cm) for hydrostatic pressure to open a pressure valve which releases a firing mechanism that automatically inflates the PFD.

Reliable Inflation

The PFD inflates under hydrostatic pressure and will not inflate prematurely due to rain, humidity or water contact. MD5183 PFD can also be inflated manually by pulling the activation cord. No inflator maintenance is required for five years, unless fired.

3D Chassis is built for speed

Revolutionary 3D chassis creates a slim profile to enhance mobility, fit securely and reduce neck fatigue also improves the body's aerodynamics to reduce drag at speed. Breathable mesh back panel is made of engineered mesh found in premium running shoes.

Exclusive Materials

Sleek inflation handle and body armor tested outer shell fabric.

The Elite™ has undergone rigorous testing including wind tunnel, high impact jumps and field testing with anglers including pros Chris Lane, Mike McClelland and Dave Mercer.

"I am honored to be a part of the field testing process because Mustang Survival is #1 in flotation not only in fishing but also our military. That's truely an honor because I have so much respect for our service men and women." Chris Lane

"The way the Elite™ fits it feels like I am not even wearing a flotation device but it's on and can save my life." Chris Lane
