Retail $299.75

The ONLY approved inflatable work vest on the market

The FIRST and ONLY inflatable work vest US Coast Guard approved for use on inspected and uninspected vessels of any size. Top-rated in the NIOSH study, the MD3188 is comfortable, durable and will not inadvertently inflate due to humidity, rain or spray thanks the Mustang Survival's exclusive HIT™ technology.

Available exclusively from Mustang Survival, the Inflatable Work Vest is the first of its kind. Designed by Mustang's Innovation & Technology experts and built for serious users with exclusive technology, Mustang Survival has pioneered the standards for inflatable work vests.

With a comfortable, low-profile fit, the Mustang Survival Inflatable Work Vest offers enhanced mobility and reduced heat stress, allowing crews and professionals to work more efficiently throughout the day. Its 35 lbs. buoyancy rating also means they'll have the added safety of extra flotation when they need it.

Made for the most severe environments, the Mustang Survival Inflatable Work Vest contains Hydrostatic Inflator Technology HIT™ that offers reliable inflation in a low maintenance design that will only automatically inflate when submerged in four or more inches of water, not inadvertently due to rain, spray or humidity. This technology is exclusive to Mustang Survival in North America and maintenance free for up to 5 years or until inflated. This product also features the patented SecureZip™ closure system to ensure the vest will stay closed during even the most rigorous activity and still open effortlessly upon inflation.

Mustang Survival MD3188 Inflatable Work Vest is ideal for constant wear situations, hot, humid conditions and high mobility requirements.

Exclusive to Mustang Survival

Hydrostatic Technology

Hydrostatic pressure is applied to objects submerged in water. The new hydrostatic inflator needs only to be submerged 4 inches (10 cm) for hydrostatic pressure to open a pressure valve which releases a firing mechanism that automatically inflates the PFD.

Reliable Inflation

The PFD inflates under hydrostatic pressure and will not inflate prematurely due to rain, humidity or water contact. MD5183 PFD can also be inflated manually by pulling the activation cord. No inflator maintenance is required for five years, unless fired.

3D Chassis is built for speed

Revolutionary 3D chassis creates a slim profile to enhance mobility, fit securely and reduce neck fatigue also improves the body's aerodynamics to reduce drag at speed. Breathable mesh back panel is made of engineered mesh found in premium running shoes.

Exclusive Materials

Sleek inflation handle and body armor tested outer shell fabric.

The Elite™ has undergone rigorous testing including wind tunnel, high impact jumps and field testing with anglers including pros Chris Lane, Mike McClelland and Dave Mercer.

"I am honored to be a part of the field testing process because Mustang Survival is #1 in flotation not only in fishing but also our military. That's truely an honor because I have so much respect for our service men and women." Chris Lane

"The way the Elite™ fits it feels like I am not even wearing a flotation device but it's on and can save my life." Chris Lane
