Mustang Survival Announces Berry Compliant Aviation Dry Suit System

Constant-wear comfort for over-water helicopter operations

MUSTANG SURVIVAL MSF300

BELLINGHAM, Washington – Mustang Survival® announced today that it has successfully configured a Berry Compliant version of its popular MSF300 Constant Wear Aviation Dry Suit System. The suit has been in service for more than a decade, supporting over-water helicopter missions with the U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Customs and Border Protection among others.

The MSF300 is a two-layer dry suit that combines the performance of a three-layer system into two layers to offer greater mobility with reduced bulk and lower thermal burden.

The outer shell uses a blended GORE-TEX®/NOMEX® fabric that is waterproof, breathable, flame-retardant and anti-static. High-wear areas are strategically reinforced to enhance the suit’s durability and prevent abrasion damage that could compromise the suit’s integrity. The breathable thermal liner provides both insulation and emergency flotation and features Mustang Survival’s aerated closed-cell foam, quilted with a wicking fabric that pulls excess moisture away from the body. The two layers combine to provide a thermal Clo value of 0.58.

“Achieving Berry Amendment compliance without impacting form, fit or function was a challenging process, and one we weren’t willing to compromise on,” said Bryan Price, Director Government Business Development of Mustang Survival. “Wearers appreciate the suit’s patented adjustable neck seal that can be worn loose to provide comfort out of the water and quickly drawn tight to keep the water out, as well as the ability to self-don, the convenience of the removable thermal liner and the comfort of the universally sized dry socks. Berry compliance now makes this feature set more accessible to the most demanding military aviators.”

This Berry Compliant version of the suit – proudly manufactured in the U.S.A. with U.S.A.-sourced materials and components – can be ordered by model number MSF300 version GB.

    If this dry suit is only being used by the Army and the Air Force then what does the Navy, Marine Corps, and the Coast Guard use since they’d fly over water a lot more than the Amy & Air Force. Another question is, why would there even be any need for more than one model of dry flight suit for the DoD?

    • SSD says:

      They use other dry suits. It’s due to different airframes and different missions.

        Interesting, although I do wonder how much different airframes affects what kind of flighsuit you’d wear, especially a specialized one. The same goes for mission, unless the Corps and the Navy don’t fly over waters cold enough to warrant a dry suit but I doubt that.
