The MRV150 Universal Swift Water Rescue Vest is a high buoyancy (25 lbs) USCG approved Type V SAR PFD. The MRV150 was developed with ongoing feedback from the water rescue community and was designed specifically to meet the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) needs of rescue professionals facing the challenges of swift water.
With an easy to adjust donning system and layered foam, this vest provides a comfortable and secure fit, which improves operational performance both in and out of the water.
The findings of the On-Water Visibility Study, scientifically conducted in 2001 by Mustang Survival, show fluorescent green as the most conspicuous color for a floating target.
As a result of in-water real world testing, the black, fluorescent yellow-green, SOLAS™ tape color blocking as depicted on the MRV150 provided excellent appearance and allowed the user to be seen throughout a wide range of light levels in clear and muddy water environments. The extreme color gradients coupled with the high reflective of over 62 square inches of SOLAS™ tape make the MRV150 one of the most visible rescue vests available today.
