Product Description

Hydrostatic technology offers reliable inflation even in severe conditions!

This lightweight, comfortable PFD uses hydrostatic pressure for reliable inflation even in severe conditions. With the included feature of a built-in harness, it is a good choice for serious offshore boaters. The Hammar 1F auto inflator is maintenance-free for up to five years and automatically inflates only when submerged in 4" of water. This means it won’t prematurely inflate due to rain, spray or humidity.

Designed for comfort with a low profile for maximum mobility. Soft neoprene Comfort Collar™ won’t chafe your neck. Patented SecureZip™ closure system breaks open easily when inflated, is easy to repack and stays closed during vigorous activities. Inflation cylinder is inside the bladder to protect against corrosion. Includes small item pocket, strobe light holder, safety whistle and SOLAS reflective tape. Rearm with Mustang Survival's Rearming Kit for Ocean Series Hydrostatic Inflatable Life Vests.
