Mustang Survival Launches New PFD for Swift Water Rescue Professionals

April 8, 2013 (Bellingham, WA) - Mustang Survival is excited to announce the launch of their newest universal fit PFD for water rescue professionals. The high buoyancy MRV150 Swift Water Rescuer’s vest was engineered from the ground up specifically to meet the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) needs of rescue technicians.

Tested and validated by top water rescue operators and teams throughout North America, the MRV150 was designed for high visibility in a full range of operational scenarios.  In a 2011 research study entitled On-Water Visibility, Mustang Survival found that fluorescent yellow-green routinely outperformed standard safety equipment colors including orange, red and yellow in terms of visual detection in water – particularly in low-light conditions.

For that reason, the MRV150 incorporates an extreme color gradient including a black base fabric, fluorescent yellow-green highlights, and 62 square inches of high reflectivity SOLASTM tape which allows the rescuer to be seen in a wide range of light levels.

The MRV150 comes feature-laden with numerous advantages critical to protecting the rescuer in unpredictable environments. The 25 lbs of buoyancy provides increased lift in turbulent waters, the contoured and comfortable fit improves operational performance both in and out of the water, and integrated safety features such as a drag handle and multiple MOLLE attachment points make this vest not only comfortable, but extremely operationally efficient for a universal size vest.

“We are excited to introduce this incredibly versatile vest to the market,” comments Dave Abt, Business Development for Mustang Survival, “We’ve worked closely with the water rescue community to integrate key features that are critical to wearability and comfort while enhancing and enabling mission efficiency.”

The MRV150 will be showcased at FDIC in Indianapolis April 22-27 and will be available at retailers in Summer of 2013.
