Mustang Survival Classic 1 Piece Flotation Suit
Perfect for a wide-range of activities including sailing, fishing and a range of industrial uses, Mustang Survival's MS-185 Classic Flotation Suit is durable, safe and mobile. Delivering warmth and comfort in cold weather environments, the Suit's closed-cell foam provides flotation and in-water insulation to delay the onset of hypothermia in the event of water immersion (Immersed Clo = 0.420). The suit features functional essentials including SOLAS tape for visibility and large front cargo pockets for storage. Considered by many to be one of Mustang's best-valued suits, and durable enough for industrial and regulatory environments, the Classic Suit is a standard piece of uniform for many government agencies.
Mustang Survival flotation suits are designed to protect the wearer from foul or cold weather, and use closed-cell foam to offer flotation and hypothermia protection in the event of water immersion. Tug-Tite technology and Velcro wrist and ankle closures improve fit and limit water flushing if immersed, SOLAS reflective tape enhances visibility and an insulated hood is easily stowed in the collar for convenience.

Did you know that being submerged in cold water for just 20 minutes can lead to hypothermia, unconsciousness, and even death?
How long a person can survive in cold water primarily depends on the water’s temperature, exposure time, and the thermal insulation of the victim’s protective clothing. The insulation within clothing is measured with the unit “Clo.” By determining the rate at which heat is lost from the body, as well as the difference in temperature between the skin and the water, predictions can be made of the rate a person’s body temperature will drop when submerged in water.
For example, one “Clo” represents the thermal comfort of an average person in business clothing in a room temperature indoor environment. Fractions of this thermal comfort are what are perceived when worn in the water, because water transfers heat out of the body 25 times faster than air.
