This is the MIT 100 Inflatable PFD by Mustang. It's Coast Guard approved. Really unique. It uses a construction that's kind of like a unibody. They call it a membrane inflatable technology. Basically, what that boils down to is the vest is the inflating bladder. There's not a separate bladder. When this is inflated, the Velcro opens, this inflates up here and then on this side also. In terms of comfort, well, the design itself makes it very thin, makes it lighter weight, and then the way that they have this instead of it being one big tube, they've got a flat area that lays on the back, it really clears up the back of the neck.
In terms of getting into this, a single large buckle, slide into this, and I've got a large adjustment here on the side, and I just pull that snug.
Okay, I've gone ahead and inflated this using the oral inflator. If this went off by using the CO2 canister, it's a little tight, just let a little bit of air out. I can adjust as needed.
It's rather a basic design for a near-shore use, 28 pounds of buoyancy. I've got fluro areas here, but we don't have things like reflective tape and strobe lights and things of that nature. Nice, comfortable, lightweight, easy to repack. This is the MIT 100 Inflatable by Mustang.
