MD4030 - This life preserver from Mustang Survival can take a direct hit from a fire arm or fragment and still inflate. The unique damage tolerant design makes this PFD well suited for use in high risk tactical situations. The 65 lb buoyancy provides extra flotation to compensate for the personal equipment and arms carried on missions. This universal size PFD can be integrated with most ballistic vests and comes with a harness. US Patent 6,453,840.
This extreme level of buoyancy compensates for nearly all configurations of personal equipment and small arms carried on missions. The DTLP's one size fits all design integrates with almost any tactical vest or armor plate carrier that uses Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE) system.
The four point attachment system incorporates side release buckles to permit emergency doffing of the life preserver and allows quick release vests to fall away.
The MD4030 Marine Damage Tolerant Life Preserver (DTLP) is designed for tactical boarding parties, and uses Auto Hydrostatic inflator technology HIT™. In the event of accidental immersion, the damage tolerant life preserver automatically inflates in 4 or more inches of water and self-rights an unconscious user. The protective cover is made of durable, high tenacity nylon that will stand up to the toughest missions. For missions that require manually activated inflation, the optional MA7219 conversion cap can reconfigure the PFD from automatic to manually activated inflation.
The MD4030 comes standard with two Kevlar® ballistic pouches MA4050. These pouches cover the CO² cylinders
and prevent them from becoming a projectile hazard in the event they are penetrated by small arms fire or fragmentation. Testing has shown that if unprotected, the cylinder separates from its inflator when struck and is extremely hazardous to the wearer. The MA4050 Ballistic Protective Pouch is protected by Pacific Safety Product's Canadian Patent No. 2,348,139 and US Patent pending.
