Mustang Adult SOLAS Life Vest

MV8040

$56.90

MSRP $84.95

The first and only life vest to have earned four regulatory approvals in one compact design. After several years of extensive design and testing, Mustang Survival is proud to announce the all new 4-ONE.

Approved to USCG SOLAS, TC SOLAS, MED SOLAS, and USCG Type I standards, the 4-ONE eases both the hassle and burden associated with compliance to a variety of vessel regulations.

Available in two sizes to fit both adults and children, the design scores highly on compact storage, easy donning and in-water performance. Stowing procedure: stack vests head to toe and front to front, for optimal space savings. When stowed properly, two vests stacked on top of each other will take up just 11.5" of depth.

MV8040 Type I Life Vest enhances your chance of survival in rough waters where rescue may be slow to arrive. MV8040 is designed to turn most unconscious wearers face up in the water, helping to ensure you'll be able to breath even if you lose consciousness. The high visibility bright orance fabric and SOLAS grade reflective material are easy to see making it more likely rescuers will spot you sooner. This comfortable light weight Type I life vest provides 22 lbs buoyancy and is sized to fit adolescents and adults 90 lbs and up.

Please note: A Declaration of Conformity (DoC) is available upon written request for all users requiring the DC to fulfill MED carriage requirements. Please send DOC requests to custserv@mustangsurvival.com with details on the Product Lot #'s marked on each MV8040 Adult lifejacket for which a DoC is required. Please also include info on total count of lifejackets for each Lot # requested.

Formula to Determine Buoyancy

If a man weighs 200 pounds on land, he only weighs 10 pounds in the water.

80% of the human body is water. Water in the body has no weight in the water.

200 pounds x 80% = 160 pounds
200 pounds – 160 pounds = 40 pounds

The human body is 15% fat, fat is lighter than water.

200 pounds x 15% = 30 pounds
40 pounds – 30 pounds = 10 pounds

A 200 pound person only weighs 10 pounds in the water.

A U.S.C.G. approved Type V vest is mandated to have 17.5 pounds of buoyancy.

If a man weighs 350 pounds on land, he only weighs:

80% of the human body is water. Water in the body has no weight in the water.

350 x 80% = 280 pounds
350 pounds – 280 pounds = 70 pounds

The human body is 15% fat, fat is lighter than water.

350 pounds x 15% = 52.5 pounds
70 pounds – 52.5 pounds = 17.5 pounds

A 350 pound person weighs 17.5 pounds in the water.
