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, fisherman 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.

In addition to its new color, 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.

Orders are now being accepted for the new suit and first shipments will commence in September 2013.
