Mustang Survival Delivers Confidence with New 2019 Collection at ICAST

July 10, 2018

Brand debuts their first recreational drysuit and new apparel and outerwear

Bellingham, WAMustang Survival®, the North American brand known for innovative solutions for the most demanding marine environments, introduces new 2019 apparel and outerwear at this month’s ICAST trade show (booth #3813) in Orlando, FL, July 11-13.  Expanding its line of product offerings, Mustang Survival releases its first drysuit specifically designed for recreational water enthusiasts – the Hudson™ Drysuit.  In addition to new styles and silhouettes, Mustang Survival also unveils a new fabric, Marine-Spec™ MP – the lightest waterproof, windproof protection with maximum flexibility – found in the all new Callan™ collection.

“With a mission to deliver confidence to those who work, play, or protect on or in the water, one of our biggest advantages is the Mustang Survival Waterlife Studio in British Columbia, Canada. Having the ability to control every aspect of the process – from concept to manufacturing – our team can really challenge the status quo,” states Jason Leggatt, Mustang Survival’s general manager. “A great example of this is our Marine-Spec family of fabrics. After extensive and thorough testing of existing fabrics, the team decided that in order to meet our exacting standards, we would need to make our own material. In the 2019 collection you’ll see this material being used throughout our products – products that deliver the confidence needed to perform at your best, or simply enjoy your time on the water.”

After 30 years of keeping the professional user dry, Mustang Survival is now leveraging their knowledge and experience to launch their first truly recreation-focused drysuit, the Hudson Drysuit (MSRP $999). Designed for in-water use across a variety of activities and constructed of Marine-Spec BP fabric, the Hudson drysuit provides performance without sacrificing comfort thanks to its few, and strategically placed, seams.

Focused on the professional user needing technical apparel to work hard, move and keep them dry and protected, the Callan Collection including the Jacket (MSRP $299), Salopette (MSRP $350) and Shorts (MSRP $150) from Mustang Survival is perfect for dynamic movements in changing conditions.

For times when the conditions are less than perfect, Mustang Survival’s integrated layering system now includes the Torrens™ Jacket (MSRP $199). Sure to be a user’s new ‘go-to’ jacket, it uses body-mapped Polartec® Alpha® insulation to keep wearers warm, even when wet, making it a great mid layer choice as it fits under the Mustang Survival waterproof outerwear for ultimate protection.
