For the past month, I have been using the Mustang Survival M.I.T. (Membrane Inflatable Technology™) 100 Manual PFD (personal flotation device) and have tested it fishing both offshore and inshore. Normally when a kayak angler purchases a PFD, they throw it in a hatch and leave it there. Mainly, this is due to the fact that most are bulky and uncomfortable. The Mustang Survival’s M.I.T. 100 inflatable PFD is neither of these. This PFD is perfect for kayak fishing, as it is sleek, comfortable, and easy to use. I went with the manual because sometimes we kayakers get wet. I didn’t want a PDF that would inflate every time I got in the water, but if I do roll and need it to inflate, it’s simple and reliable. I love the fact that it does not hinder my range of motion at all. I can paddle, cast, move around or whatever I want and at no time have to take off my PFD. The Mustang Survival M.I.T. 100 is extremely lightweight, and at the end of a long day on the water, you don’t feel “weighed” down from wearing it. In fact, most the time I forget I even have it on because it feels natural and comfortable. The M.I.T. 100 is the perfect PFD for kayak fishing!
The M.I.T. 100 is made for simplicity. There is no bulky foam or pockets to get gear snagged on. It is quick to put on and easy to adjust. It has one buckle located on the stomach and an adjustment located on the right ribcage and can be adjusted from 30”-52” inches. There is an Inflator inspection window and easy access flap for checking the status of the 24-gram Co2 cylinder. This PFD provides a minimum of 26 lbs. (100 N) of buoyancy when inflated, more than 1.5 times the buoyancy of most foam PFD. It is designed for wearers over 16 years of age, weighing over 80 pounds. Not only does it have amazing performance, but it’s also stylish. It comes in four colors; Yellow/Black, Pink/Black, Cobalt/Black, and Green Apple/Black. I’ve been extremely pleased with my Mustang Survival MIT 100 PFD. If you’re looking for a comfortable yet very effective inflatable PFD, then I highly suggest the MIT 100 PFD from Mustang Survival.
