SKU MD3188
$360.89
$239.95 (Save $120.94)
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, Mustang Survival has pioneered the standards for inflatable work vests.

If it doesn't say work vest, it's not a real work vest. Ideal for constant wear situations, hot, humid conditions and high mobility requirements.

With a comfortable and low-profile fit, the MD3188 Inflatable Work Vest offers enhanced mobility and reduced heat stress, allowing crews and professionals to work more efficiently throughout the day. Its 38lb buoyancy rating also means they'll have the added safety of extra flotation when they need it. Bright fluorescent yellow-green inflation cell for improved visibility. Research shows fluorescent yellow-green to be the most visible color in a water rescue scenario.

Made for the most severe marine environments, the 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 4 or more inches of water, and not inadvertently due to rain, spray or humidity. This technology is exclusive to Mustang Survival in North America and maintenance-free for 5 years from date of manufacture or until inflated.

The 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.

We know you have options when it comes to purchasing your new equipment, but we're confident that we will exceed your expectations, and here's why...

We're real people!  Our team is made up of real outdoor-loving people, just like you, and we want to share our knowledge.  We don't just sell these products, we use them ourselves or have close friends and family that do.  We do this every day, and we love answering questions.  Contact us here.

More than a .com:  We're not just another drop-shipping pop-up site that the kid down the street started in his mom's basement (yes, that's really a thing).  We started our business the old-fashioned way and we've got the physical locations and warehouse to prove it.  Check out our locations here.

We service what we sell: We operate two USCG approved liferaft servicing facilities, and we're manufacturer certified for more than 10 liferaft brands, EPIRBs and PLBs, immersion suits, life jackets and more.  So, when you have a question or want the inside scoop about what's what, you'll know that you're talking to someone that's actually seen the raft, worn the PFD, or tested the EPIRB themselves.  Check out our service department here.

We take it personally: We truly do take it personally if you're not 100% satisfied with your experience.  We want to earn your business, not just for today, but for many years to come.  We understand the power of good relationships and the trust that can only be created from following through on the big and little things alike.  We're still human and we make mistakes, but it's how we handle them that makes us different.
