MUSTANG SURVIVAL LAUNCHES NEW OCEAN COMMANDER

Mustang Survival Suit

Mustang Survival® is pleased to launch an improved Ocean Commander immersion suit to the Canadian marketplace; the first immersion suit to receive Transport Canada, MED, and SOLAS approvals.  After research and tests, this launch also marks the return of the long-trusted Ocean Commander® immersion suit for sailors, offshore boaters, anglers and other commercial marine workers alike.
 
The new Ocean Commander (Model #OC8003 HR) is constructed of a high visibility fluorescent yellow-green shell material, building off the findings of a recent study led by Mustang Survival’s research department. The study, titled On-Water Visibility, found fluorescent yellow-green to be up to four times more detectable in rescue conditions than other common immersion suit colours.
 
“When we retired the previous Ocean Commander (Model #OC8001) a couple of years ago customers kept asking us to bring it back. It was always our intention to redesign and re-launch this suit and, in our customers’ eyes, it couldn’t come soon enough,” comments Brian Milligen, Director of Sales at Mustang Survival.
 
In addition to its new colour, the Ocean Commander is feature-laden to provide the highest level of protection. Donning is made easy with a full-length zipper, neoprene wrist seals and removable neoprene mitts. The Ocean Commander is also lighter and more durable than conventional neoprene suits, and provides unhindered mobility for both work activities and strenuous abandonment procedures.
 
“The quality and performance of the new Ocean Commander in combination with the harness/buddy line, updated wrist cuffs and the only TC/SOLAS approved high-vis fluorescent material available in Canada, make this immersion suit the top choice for mariners and commercial marine workers who want to be seen and survive an abandon ship emergency should they find themselves in this undesirable position in our frigid northern waters.”
 
Mustang Survival’s Ocean Commander Immersion Suit series has long been the trusted choice of sailors, offshore boaters, fishermen and other commercial marine workers.

Lead by Executive Director Marie-France MacKinnon and executed by her team and their public affairs firm, BlueSky Strategy Group, the results were impressive. The NMMA Canada Board of Directors were organized into teams with business interests and special skills matched up to politicians and senior bureaucrats to most effectively present the marine industry’s agenda of issues.

As a back-up to modern electronics, it’s a vital navigational tool that belongs on every commercial and recreational boat.
