The Mustang Survival MSD720 Quick-Donning Immersion Coverall is an excellent blend of ergonomic design and emergency hazards protection. It is conveniently stored, easily and quickly donned and very effective in protecting the user in the event of cold-water immersion.
The MSD720 02 is an insulated, hypothermia protective, flame and heat protective, quick-donning garment intended for use by aircrew and passengers operating over water. The suit packs into a small nylon case for convenient storage on-board the aircraft. The suit is specifically engineered for long-range maritime patrol and transport aircraft, but also performs well as a rotary wing aircraft passenger suit or as a land survival suit. The MSD720 02 is constructed from inherently buoyant, 2mm waterproof neoprene that is resistant to petroleum. This material provides excellent fire and flame protection as well as thermal insulating performance against extreme heat or cold.
The MSD720 02 is a one-piece coverall, designed for compatibility with lifejackets. It is fitted with a horizontal, “across-the-chest” waterproof entry zipper for easy self-donning. The fitting of high stretch, soft latex seals at the neck and wrists, facilitates the watertight design. Seals are replaceable by qualified technicians at the unit level, or the suit may be returned to Mustang Survival for repairs.
The insulated three finger thermal protective gloves are easily accessible in the storage pockets on the sleeves. The glove design provides for easy handling of survival equipment, personal gear, and boarding of rescue boats and life rafts. There is an insulated thermal protective hood stored in the thigh pocket for minimizing heat loss through the head and protecting against adverse weather and cold seas. The gloves and hood are fitted with adjustable straps and are secured to the suit with tethering lines.
A close fitting suit provides enhanced mobility and the straps at the waist and ankles are easily adjusted with either hand to gather in excess suit material. Integrated boots that accommodate regular footwear aid quick donning.
The compact size of the stowed suit is maintained with the nylon carry case’s three circumferential suppression straps. It also has a drawstring closure, carry strap and clearly marked donning instructions.
Mustang has a long history of working closely with the military developing survival apparel solutions that offer superior performance and comfort.
