The HIT MD318802 is ideal for constant wear situations, hot, humid conditions and high mobility requirements as faced on boats and in marinas. With a comfortable and low-profile fit, the MD3188-02 Inflatable Work Vest offers enhanced mobility and reduced heat stress, allowing crews and professionals to work more efficiently throughout the day. The 38lb buoyancy rating provides added safety with the extra flotation.

Made for the most severe marine environments, this 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.
