For Immediate Release

March 1, 2016

BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Mustang Survival® announced today that its Spring 2016 Range is now shipping to stores and will be available for purchase at the 2016 Geico Bassmaster Classic through retail partners at the show. The Geico Bassmaster Classic takes place from March 4 – 6, 2016 at the Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The first 150 customers to purchase a new Elite™ Inflatable PFD (personal flotation device) from Dicks Sporting Goods will qualify for a free pair of Mustang Survival Traction Gloves. To claim the gloves, simply bring proof of purchase by the Mustang Survival booth #121 at the Geico Bassmaster Classic.

In addition, Mustang Survival Pros Mike McClelland Dave Mercer and Chris Lane will be presenting prizes at the Mustang Survival booth #121 at noon every day throughout the Classic. There will be prizes up for grabs from the Spring 2016 Range. To find out more and get a chance to win, drop by any time prior to 11 a.m.

The Spring 2016 Range brings performance to the forefront with the introduction of two new Elite inflatable PFDs, gloves and accessories. The new Elite models follow the highly successful 2015 introduction of the original Elite PFD and the Elite Bass Competition PFD, which is also available for purchase at the show.

-The Elite 38: The Elite 38 blends lightweight with durability and Mustang Survival’s highest buoyancy rating for commercial inflatable PFDs at 38 lbs. The lightweight body armor industry outer shell is reinforced with TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) abrasion patches in hard-wearing areas. The bright fluorescent yellow/green inflation cell greatly improves in-water visibility and includes a strobe light holder and safety whistle.

-The Elite 28K: Designed with paddling in mind, the Elite 28K brings together motion and adaptability with a MOLLE attachment system commonly used in military applications. A separate MOLLE-compatible pocket is available and, along with the lash tab and attachment points, allows for secure stowage and retrieval of essential tools and gear. The slim 3D chassis helps to reduce interference and the integrated back panel has been designed to fit kayak seats.

-Traction Gloves: Engineered for fishing and a first for Mustang Survival, the Traction Glove provides a 30-50 percent grip improvement over bare hands. There are two models available – a fingerless glove when dexterity is a must, and a full-finger glove for cold and wet conditions with touchscreen-friendly conductive fingertips.
