Mustang is Only one (I think)

I googled hydrostatic pfd and came up with only Mustang. I thought Spinlock or Revere also had a model, but I couldn't find confirmation.

Mustang may have a patent on the hydrostatic method, which is why you don't see models from the others.

Having worn my hydrostatic vest a number of times now (Mustang 3184), as much as I like it I have to say that it is on the heavy side. Noticeably heavier than the foam PFD I used to wear. Of course, this has the harness built in, so it's not an entirely fair comparison. But it's something to think about when considering comfort issues. Sure, it's less bulky than the foam vest, but the extra weight is definitely noticeable.

Really... this one wouldn't be an alternative?

Hammar Automatic


Available on Crewfit 275N, 150N and Freedom

The Hammar Inflator gives exellent protection from random activation caused by moisture, rain or wave splash. This is achieved by protecting the water sensitive element with a hydrostatic valve, which operates when submerged in over 10cmof water and, depending upon the Lifejacket style, held there for between 2 to 3 seconds.

Hammar works on water pressure, only operating when submerged in 10cm of salt or fresh water.
No accidentalk inflation, even in extreme conditions.
Cylinder is mounted on the inside of the Lifejacket inflation chamber.
Re-arming instructions and key provided with each Re-arming Pack.
Can also be inflated as manual version or orally.


Wetsuit Outlet

There's the link from above.... It appears to be a European brand but perhaps still an option to the Mustang.

Gary M is on a distinguished road
Spinlock makes one that I have heard great reports on, the lastest Sailing World mag just praised it. The only problem is it is not US or CAN CG approved. Now it works well and I might well buy one, that is when I find out where.
You will of course have to have a stand PFD for that person as well to meet the requiements.
