MD3183 - Incorporating new and improved hydrostatic inflation technology, and a durable and easy-to-use SecureZip™ PFD closure system, Mustang Survival's new Auto Hydrostatic Inflatable PFD was made for the most demanding users and the most severe marine environments.

The Hydrostatic Inflator Technology HIT™ offers reliable inflation in a low maintenance design that will only automatically inflate when submerged in four or more inches of water and not inadvertently due to spray or humidity. Exclusive to Mustang Survival in North America and maintenance free for 5 years or until inflated. Made for the most severe marine environments the MD3183 PFD with HIT™ will meet the challenges of the most demanding users. It also features Mustang Survival's patented SecureZip™ closure system to ensure the PFD will stay closed during even the most rigorous activity and still opens effortlessly upon inflation.

The MD3183 is lightweight and comfortable and can be worn over a t-shirt on warm days or over thicker garments in colder conditions. Its low profile allows for maximum mobility. The neoprene Comfort Collar™ is soft on your neck and is part of a sleek design that is so comfortable you'll forget you're wearing a PFD.

The new Deluxe Inflatable PFD with Hydrostatic Inflator is USCG approved for Uninspected Commercial Vessels less than 40 feet long, when worn in lieu of Type II and III PFDs under 46 CFR 160.064 and is approved under 160.076.

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 (the PFD can also be inflated by pulling the activation cord).
Low Maintenance
No inflator maintenance is required for five years, unless fired.
Safety Inspection Window
Easily view the inflator replacement date and inflator status through the safety inspection window - green indicates ready for use.
SecureZip™ closure
Born from our research in military applications, the patented SecureZip™ closure system keeps the PFD closed during the most rigorous activity, makes the PFD easy to repack and effortlessly opens upon inflation.

Use only Mustang Survival re-arm kits. Use of other re-arm kits may result in improper operation or failure to operate and will void the product's warranty.
