MIT Inflatable PFD Range
for all those who live beyond land.
Engineered in the Pacific Northwest. Trusted Everywhere.
At Mustang Survival, we pioneered the use of Membrane Inflatable Technology (MIT), revolutionizing inflatable PFDs by making them extremely lightweight and offering a more flexible, low-profile fit for ample protection when fishing, sailing, paddling and boating.
We’ve recently updated our full MIT Range, offering our new and improved convertible inflation technology, additional buoyancy and easier re-arm & repack solutions.
Membrane Inflatable Technology (MIT) replaces traditional PFD inflation bladders for a more lightweight, comfortable and flexible fit. The MIT membrane is protected by a robust nylon face fabric when not inflated. Once deployed, each MIT PFD displays a high-visibility, contrasting fabric for increased safety in a rescue situation.
Fit. Form. Function.
Designed to provide maximum comfort & versatility with an ultra-lightweight, tailored to the body fit.
FormRugged face fabric offers robust protection for the membrane inflation cell. Easy to re-arm & repack after each use.
FunctionNew MIT 100 & 150 convertible PFD allows switching between manual and automatic inflation modes.
Introducing the NEW MIT 150 — the only type II-rated MIT PFD, highest buoyancy with 38 lbs when inflated, strongest turning performance and airflow protection. Now built using our convertible inflation technology, users can easily switch between auto & manual modes.
Intended Use: Coastal excursions, fishing, sailing and boating.
When inflated, the MIT 100 provides 28 lbs of buoyancy—1.5x more buoyancy than regular foam PFDs—and will turn most wearers face up. The updated MIT 100 is built using convertible inflation technology, so users can switch between manual & automatic inflation modes as needed.
Intended Use: Coastal & Inshore excursions, fishing, paddling, sailing, boating.
The smallest of its kind approved in North America—The MIT 70 is our most lightweight PFD in the MIT range. With automatic and manual inflation options available, the MIT 70 offers 15.7 lbs of buoyancy when inflated.
Intended Use: Inshore excursions, paddle boarding, kayak angling, boating.
TESTED AND REVIEWED BY
Thomas Allen about the
MIT 100 Manual
“Comfort and ease of use are two important features for me with this style of PFD. It can be put on and taken off quickly, and most importantly it’s reliable [...] Plus, it really is easy to repack if deployed.”
MIT 100 Automatic
“It may be minimalist in design, but the MIT 100 Automatic Inflatable PFD by Mustang Survival packs serious performance in its sleek package.”
April Thompson about the
MIT 100 Manual
“With a comfortable design that rests on around the shoulders and upper back with large arm cutouts, this PFD won’t get in your way when you’re on the water.”
David Schmidt about the
MIT 100 Automatic
While the MIT 100 doesn’t have a tether hardpoint, its lower price point could make it a good choice for inshore cruising or blue-sky day sailing.
Alison Hodgins about the
MIT 100 Convertible
"My partner and I were stoked to use the MIT[...] 100 this summer. The thin, front-entry PFD sits flush against your chest without restricting movement while paddling."
