Mustang Survival Elite Auto Hydrostatic Inflatable PFD




Push the limits with the Elite 28 Inflatable PFD - a performance life jacket without compromise that you'll wear while boating and during other water activities. Mustang Survival uses their 3D chassis construction so the Elite 28 stays put at high speeds, lets you move the way you want and NEED to and provides automatic inflation powered by Hydrostatic Inflator Technology. The 3D chassis reduces drag at speed, the wide shoulder system eliminates neck fatigue, a wicking mesh liner improves all-day comfort, dual-side adjusters ease fit and an exclusive sleek inflation handle prevents snags. The bright fluorescent yellow-green inflation cell provides 28 lb buoyancy when inflated and improves visibility in a rescue scenario.

Amazing Vest


The elite 28 auto PFD life jackets is AWESOME. Very light weight, it doesn’t restrict you at all. I normally take my life vest off once the boat stops. Not anymore this vest is comfortable enough to wear all day.
