The Mustang Survival low profile MD1250 SO provides flotation capability with minimum bulk or interference using separate, independently operated left and right side pouches. With the option to wear on a standard or padded LE belt or attach directly to Pouch Attachment Ladder System (PALS) webbing on Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE) vests, the MD1250 SO is a versatile solution for users who require emergency flotation with minimal bulk or interference with gear.
The MD1250 SO is sold as a pair of pouches, including both the left and right units. Each unit contains 35 lbs buoyancy for a combined 70 lbs buoyancy. This high level of buoyancy helps offset the weight of equipment. A nylon webbing strap with Velcro® attachments located on the front of the bladders is included to allow the wearer to connect the front lobes of the life preserver once inflated to better support the wearer in the water.
When fitted with the included manual conversion cap, the automatic hydrostatic function can be disabled. Each pouch can still be inflated by pulling the beaded handle. An oral inflation tube provides backup inflation, or emergency in-field deflation.
QUICK INTEGRATION AND EASY REPACKING
The Hydrostatic Inflator Technology (HIT™) will not inflate prematurely due to rain, humidity or wind driven sea spray. The inflatable cell achieves full inflation within seconds of immersion in 4 or more inches of water, or with a simple pull of the beaded handle. The stabilization cap fits over the inflator to protect it and ensures its performance in some of the most demanding environments. An oral inflation tube provides backup inflation, if necessary and can also be used to reduce buoyancy if needed.
The MD1250 SO is available in black or coyote tan outer shell with an olive drab bladder and no SOLAS grade reflective tape to aid in military special operations.
MD1250 SO requires 2 re-arm kits MA7214 10 after deployment, one kit for each side pouch.
