Excellent

This item arrived as promised and fits like a glove. Very satisfied with the description, it is exactly as described. Nothing bad to say. Hopefully I won't have to use it anytime soon. Would be helpful for the review but means I was in big trouble.

Mustang life jackets

By Stephanie C.

from Crossett , AR, US

I ordered the wrong ones, I thought I was getting the ones that automatically inflate when in water and the ones I ordered r manual pull string inflation, I would like to send these back and get the automatic inflation ones if I sell them

 

High quality

By Barbara K.

Looked for a long time and compared quality of the different pfd's at different sporting goods stores....decided on the mustang manual. Hope I never have to activate it...fits good, will wear it for fishing and waterfowl hunting.

 

Best Value

By AL B.

I searched the Internet for a long time to find an inflatable PFD with a USCG rating of lll for less than $100. Mustang is known for quality. The vest is comfortable and well made.

 

Comfortable and Perfect

By Dr L.

Perfect for a race sailor in inland waters. The vest is well made and has the Mustang reputation at a very affordable price.

 

Great Product! But Not Right for Me

By Deborah K.

from Gainesville, FL, US

I am 5 ft, 1 inch tall & weigh 118 lbs. I swim in the ocean & surf, but am no longer as strong a swimmer as I once was. I wanted a safety vest to replace my now defunct "Mae West" manual CO2 cartridge vest. I returned the Mustang Survival MIT 100 Manual Activation PFD vest b/c the CO2 cartridge & mechanism on the Mustang vest felt too heavy for me to wear as a small swimmer. I am slender & don't float well anyway, and didn't want that much extra wt on me. The 24 gm cartridge & mechanism on this Mustang vest is much larger than on my old 16 gm one. The Mustang manual vest WOULD be perfect IF it were also offered in a smaller size w/ a smaller cartridge. This Mustang vest is beautifully made, well thought-out, and was very comfortable when I put it on, despite the small extra weight. For someone small on a boat it would be fine. Or even for a larger person in the water who was a stronger swimmer than I. I didn't want to return it! The only addition I would make to this Mustang vest is to put SOLAS patches on the expansion sides for safety. I bought the grey Mustang vest which has wide, fluorescent green patches on the expansion side panels, but they weren't reflective, which, in an emergency, I would have preferred.

 

Heavy use in the surf

By Conrad A.

from VA Beach, VA, US

I purchase this PFD to be used in a work capacity while teaching a Surf Rescue class (basically oceanfront life guard training, with some boat work & paddleboards). I've added a whistle to the manual inflator and have a gear keeper attached to the belt to hold a knife. So far, it holds up really well, stays pretty streamlined while swimming, keeps the manual inflator tucked neatly out of the way, and is comfortable for all day use vs heavier military swimmer vests. My one issue (4 stars vs 5) is the external fabric pouch collects a little water when swimming and needs to drain (drain holes are there), but I'd rather not collect water and additional drag while swimming through the surf zone. For a $100 it's a good buy, easy to care for and I'll likely get a replacement when it wears out.

The fit will it fit a large man?
A shopper on Dec 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The design is very forgiving for those packing some extra lbs around the middle. Much more comfortable and non-intrusive than a traditional PFD. Mine works great over foul weather gear with a sweater underneath and I wear XXL.
Can I use this life vest spearfishing? How fast would it decay in the salt water? I am looking for an emergency device that will help me when I need it.
David M on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not sure I completely agree with other comments. There is a small pocket/void space between the internal air bladder and the external canvas material that will hold a small amount of air/water. But drain holes allow it to escape. I use mine in the salt water all the time while swimming. Easy to dive with, easy to surface swim with. Easy to clean. I soak it in a bucket of fresh water for about 10 mins after a hose down rinse to get all the salt out... No issue so far.
