“We are extremely proud of our heritage and want to share this celebration with all of our customers who have trusted the Mustang Survival brand with their lives over the last 50 years. It is only fitting to kick things off at the Vancouver International Boat Show, just a few blocks away from the Company’s original Gastown factory,” says Jason Leggatt, Vice President and General Manager of Mustang Survival. “The show also represents a leap into the future for the company, with the introduction of our new technical apparel products as demonstrated in the EP Ocean Racing Collection.”

Within the Mustang Survival booth,  attendees will be able to explore and try on the EP Ocean Racing Collection. The Collection was worn by the crew aboard the super-maxi yacht Comanche and her record-setting journeys, and was also recently featured in Red Bull’s Flying on Water mission. Designed for the most elite and extreme ocean sailors, the EP Ocean Racing Collection leverages materials and technologies used in many Mustang Survival military and tactical products. The Collection features:
 

  • EP 38 Ocean Racing Inflatable Vest – A race-ready vest that is compliant with World Sailing (formerly ISAF) requirements and Transport Canada/USCG approvals. Features Hydrostatic Inflator Technology (HIT™) for reliable inflation in extreme conditions, stowable crotch straps and spray hood, as well as AIS compatibility. Engineered for the elite ocean racer with premium design features that enable optimal performance.
  • EP 6.5 Ocean Racing Outerwear – The DAME Award-nominated outerwear collection designed for elite ocean racing sailors uses military-grade Gore-Tex®  fabric for robust breathability, durability and resistance to delamination. The collection includes a dry duit, jacket, salopette, and spray smock with Gore-Tex Pro. The products incorporate premium ingredient components, including AquaSeal® waterproof zippers, Cohaesive™ cinch adjusters and Closed Comfort System™ neck seals for pinnacle performance in nasty conditions.
  • Regulate Base Layers – Crafted with a blend of Merino wool and synthetic yarns, the fabric of Mustang Survival’s Regulate Base Layers touts the benefits of both fibers, designed for the unique demands of the nautical user. The Regulate Base Layer system is available in 175 weight and 230 weight tops and bottoms.
  • Bluewater Gear Haulers – Perfect for waterlife day trips or extended overnight excursions, the Bluewater Gear Haulers feature weatherproof construction with urethane-coated zippers and a 210-denier coated nylon shell. The Bluewater Gear Hauler series is offered in 55-, 30- and 15-liter volumes. All Bluewater Gear Haulers feature a Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment (MOLLE) panel for custom gear configurations. The 55-liter Bluewater Gear Hauler uses water-resistant construction with separate compartments for wet and dry gear. The 30-liter version features a roll-top waterproof compartment and water-resistant construction with a laptop sleeve, while the 15-liter Gear Hauler is hydration-compatible with water-resistant construction.
  • Greenwater Gear Haulers –  Designed to be tied down and withstand the most violent conditions the ocean can bring, the Greenwater Gear Haulers are 100% waterproof with Aquaseal waterproof zippers, and are available in 35- and 65-liter sizes.
  • Bluewater Roll Top Dry Bags – Available in 5-, 10-, 15-, 20- and 35-liter sizes, Mustang Survival’s Roll Top Dry Bags are designed with a unique rectangular shape for easier packing and stuffing, in combination with other gear haulers in the line.
