Cross-Over Integrated Aircrew Survival Vest


+1-763-263-9835 for Quote

From the successful base model multi platform life preserver survival vest, the MSV973 HT can be configured for helo and transport use.

Designed specifically for pilots and aircrew to be worn over flight suits, the Mustang Survival MSV973 HT is an inflatable flotation cell integrated into a survival vest. Providing a full 37 lbs. of buoyancy, the inflatable cell - available with automatic or manual inflation - is comprised of two independent chambers, separated by an internal membrane, with single point inflation. This provides for an orally inflated reserve chamber in the event that the primary chamber becomes damaged.

All Mustang Survival aircrew life preserver / survival vests include integrated harness lifting straps, signal whistle, SOLAS reflective tape, buddy tether line and integrated waist buckle as standard features.


The high frequency welded construction of the inflatable cell utilizes polyurethane coated nylon fabric which exceeds the requirements of both MIL-C-83489 and AMS 3272/1. The protective LP cover is constructed from fire resistant 6 oz. Nomex® aramid fabric. This vest has a wide range of adjustability for mission role and requirement changes.
