Mustang Survival® Showcasing Commercial Marine Solutions at the International WorkBoat Show and Pacific Marine Expo 2013

BURNABY, BC – Mustang Survival will be showcasing its comprehensive line of industrial flotation and climate protection solutions for marine professionals at the International WorkBoat Show and Pacific Marine Expo this fall. Featured at these shows will be the HIT™ Inflatable Work Vest, a series of high-visibility flotation vests, and solutions for helicopter transportation.

Mustang Survival’s HIT™ Inflatable Work Vest (MD3188) continues to be the only USCG approved inflatable work vest on the market. Featuring Hydrostatic Inflation Technology (HIT™) the MD3188 will only inflate when submerged under 4” or more of water or when manually activated. Rated as the top PFD (Personal Flotation Device) of choice by commercial fishermen that participated in studies conducted by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, the MD3188 is a lightweight, highly durable, inflatable PFD made with abrasion-resistant fabric and designed for maximum mobility with minimal heat burden.

“The WorkBoat Show and Pacific Marine Expo are great venues for showcasing our industry-leading solutions to our commercial and industrial marine partners,” comments Shannon Ward, Mustang Survival’s Director of Business Development and Marketing. “The HIT Inflatable Work Vest is the only automatic vest on the market whose performance isn’t affected by humidity, rain, splash or spray. It provides an incredible safety advantage.”

Mustang Survival will also be showing its line of high-visibility solutions at the fall shows. Building off the findings of a recent study entitled On-Water Visibility, led by Mustang Survival’s research department, the line of high-visibility products features an ANSI fluorescent yellow-green shell material, which was found to be up to four times more detectable in rescue conditions than other common PFD colors.

Mustang Survival will be exhibiting at the following commercial marine shows:

International WorkBoat Show New Orleans, LA Booth #1544
Pacific Marine Expo Seattle, WA Booth #900
