Incorporating new and improved hydrostatic inflation technology, and a durable and easy-to-use SecureZip™ PFD closure system, Mustang Survival's Auto Hydrostatic Inflatable PFD was made for the most demanding users and the most severe marine environments.
The Hydrostatic Inflator Technology HIT™ offers reliable inflation in a low maintenance design that will only automatically inflate when submerged in four or more inches of water and not inadvertently due to spray or humidity. Exclusive to Mustang Survival in North America and maintenance free for 5 years or until inflated. Made for the most severe marine environments the MD3183 PFD with HIT™ will meet the challenges of the most demanding users. It also features Mustang Survival's patented SecureZip™ closure system to ensure the PFD will stay closed during even the most rigorous activity and still opens effortlessly upon inflation.
The MD3183 is lightweight and comfortable and can be worn over a t-shirt on warm days or over thicker garments in colder conditions. Its low profile allows for maximum mobility. The neoprene Comfort Collar™ is soft on your neck and is part of a sleek design that is so comfortable you'll forget you're wearing a PFD.
