Mustang Survival Announces Delivery on U.S. Government Contract
January 22, 2018
Initiating 5-year contract to provide new maritime assault suit systems for Navy use
Bellingham, WA – Mustang Survival®, the North American manufacturer of innovative solutions for the most demanding marine environments, proudly announces it has started delivering the Maritime Assault Suit System (MASS) and Lightweight Maritime Assault Suit System (L-MASS) for Navy use, having been awarded a 5-year IDIQ contract by the U.S. government. Developed for users engaging in maritime operations, the MASS and L-MASS are both waterproof and breathable. And while they meet the requirements of splash and/or immersed hypothermia protection, both suits utilize military Gore-Tex® fabrics for a lightweight, comfortable design for constant wear while achieving mission objectives.
“Designing and manufacturing the most innovative gear possible to protect those who protect us is a mission we undertake with an immense amount of pride and respect for those we’re serving. Each article of gear and apparel takes the end-users’ mission, safety and comfort into account. Not only is the weight substantially reduced, but so is the thermal burden traditionally associated with dry suits,” explains Brian Dalgliesh, manager for the U.S. Military Channel for Mustang Survival.
With weights of less than 5 pounds for the MASS (MSD674vMA) and less than 4 pounds for the L-MASS (MSD678vMA), the dry suit’s sophisticated design technology and features do not hinder movement or mobility while keeping the operator safe and dry. The Mustang Survival MASS & L-MASS deliver surface operations dry suits that wear like standard operational clothing, but provide the protection of a dry suit. MASS is based on Mustang Survival’s MSD674vTO Sentinel™ Series Tactical Operations Dry Suit and the L-MASS is based on the MSD678 Sentinel Series Ultra-Lightweight Dry Suit.
Exclusive to Mustang Survival, the Sentinel Series dry suits feature:
- Mobility Based Sizing™ offers users a semi-custom fit that reduces bulk and increases mobility without the custom price tag.
- Rapid Repair Technology™ enables users to field replace neck and wrist seals and repair small leaks in an hour or less. Now includes Rapid Repair Socks.
