Mustang Survival Announces Berry Compliant Aviation Dry Suit System

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

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.

For more information on the MSF300, visit Mustang Survival booth #1512 at the Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit March 29 – April 1 at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, TN. Detailed product information is also available online at www.mustangsurvival.com/professional/MSF300.

SureFire Releases Limited-Edition Freedom Alliance 25th Anniversary Flashlight

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

Fountain Valley, CA — SureFire, LLC, manufacturer of high-performance illumination tools, suppressors, and tactical products, is honored to produce the first ever commemorative flashlight celebrating Freedom Alliance’s 25th anniversary. This limited-edition 500 max lumens flashlight features red, silver, and blue coloring in a stars-and-stripes motif; Freedom Alliance’s bald eagle logo; and each flashlight is inscribed with the signature of Freedom Alliance Founder Lt. Colonel Oliver North USMC (retired) and engraved with an individual serial number for collection purposes. A portion of all proceeds from the sales of these collectable flashlights will be donated by SureFire to Freedom Alliance to support the organization’s mission of providing college scholarships to the children of wounded and fallen heroes of America’s Armed Forces.

“SureFire is proud to support Freedom Alliance and what it does for the sons and daughters of these great Americans.” said Jeff Barger, VP of Commercial Sales and Marketing. “Producing this commemorative flashlight is our way of honoring Freedom Alliance’s 25 years of service while also giving back to these children and making sure that their parents’ sacrifices are not forgotten.”

The Freedom Alliance 25th Anniversary flashlight is based on SureFire’s best-selling P2X Fury®. Like the Fury, its virtually indestructible LED produces two useful output levels—a blinding 500-lumen beam and a 15-lumen beam for tasks that don’t require as much light—both of which are controlled by a click-on/off tailcap switch. A precision reflector smoothes and shapes the light at either level into a flawless beam with plenty of reach and more than enough surround light for maintaining good situational awareness. The blue and red coloring on the 25th Anniversary light is both decorative and protective—its Mil-Spec hard anodizing is nearly as hard as diamond.

The SureFire Freedom Alliance 25th Anniversary Commemorative Flashlight has an MSRP of $239 and is available directly from SureFire. These collectible flashlights will begin shipping in May of 2015, but preorders are currently being accepted at surefire.com, and orders placed before April 30th qualify for free shipping. This is a limited-edition item, so once supplies are gone it will no longer be available. For more information visit:

Hyperstealth Develops New Jamaica Defense Force Camo Pattern

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Although we haven’t heard from Canada’s Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corporation in awhile, that doesn’t mean they haven’t been busy. The Jamaica Defense Force just unveiled their new Digital Combat Uniforms which sport a camoflauge pattern developed by Hyperstealth. This pattern replaces the British DPM used since 1992.

Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Antony Anderson, said said the new uniform has security features, which will ensure that it does not end up in the hands of criminals and is proprietary meaning it cannot be purchased at a surplus store.

The new uniform will be available in land and maritime variants amd is said to be up to 50% more effective at camouflaging troops than the outgoing DPM, as it blends more easily into both the urban and jungle-type terrain as well as coastal conditions in which the JDF operates.
