Mustang Survival Launches New Products at ICAST 2012
Mustang Survival will launch its new 2013 recreation product line at this year’s ICAST show. The 2013 product line up will include a brand new inflatable PFD made with Membrane Inflatable Technology™ (M.I.T.) and the waterproof and breathable Catalyst Flotation Pant. To celebrate the launch of these new products, Mustang Survival will be hosting its annual VIP reception for its key industry contacts at the show.
The all new M.I.T. 100 is a stylish, easy to use and easy to wear inflatable PFD featuring Mustang Survival’s exclusive Membrane Inflatable Technology™. Because M.I.T. inflatables are made with a special stretch fabric derived from the medical industry, they offer a lighter and more flexible fit than other PFDs on the market. The new M.I.T. inflatable provides 26 lbs (100 Newtons) of buoyancy when inflated, and offers more flotation and comfort than a traditional bulky foam vest.
The Catalyst Flotation Pant is designed with the same exclusive M-Tech Comfort System™ technology as Mustang Survival’s Catalyst Flotation Jacket and Coat. Like the jacket, the Catalyst Flotation Pant provides the utmost comfort in a waterproof and breathable design that also offers hypothermia protection. Fully seam-sealed with added comfort features like fleeced-lined hand warmer pockets and zippered legs for ease of donning, the flotation pant can be worn with the Catalyst Flotation Jacket or Coat as an integrated flotation suit.
“Our entire team is excited to launch our new products at ICAST,” comments Shannon Ward, Director of Recreation Business Development at Mustang Survival, “The M.I.T. 100 was created to reach out to the many boaters out there that are currently not wearing PFDs. We leveraged the strengths of our Research & Design team to make the product lightweight and comfortable even in hot, humid environments, on giving it a bit of attitude with a brand new look and on making it really easy to use and easy to wear. The early response has been very positive.”
