Mustang Survival announced that the brand’s EP Ocean Racing Collection has earned a Gold A¹ Design Award from the design competition. Introduced in June 2016, the EP Ocean Racing Collection is a specialized system designed for optimal function and peak performance when worn/used together and represents years of research, development and testing.
The A¹ Design Award and Competition is the world¹s largest design competition, with awards for best designs, design concepts and products and services.
“Mustang Survival has been designing and producing innovative and premium products for marine environments for over 50 years,” said Jason Leggatt, vice president & general manager at Mustang Survival. “This acknowledgement from respected peers and colleagues on the global stage honors the technical approach Mustang Survival brings to each product¹s development.”
The EP 6.5 Ocean Racing outerwear category features military-grade GORE-TEX fabric – which for 20 years has only been available to the military, coast guard and first responders. The launch of the EP 6.5 Ocean Racing outerwear brings the technology to the consumer market for the first time. Engineered for demanding nautical users, the military-grade GORE-TEX fabric offers a heavier denier for extended use and makes the fabric resistant to corrosive agents, such as fuel and salt water.
Working alongside the product design and development team at Mustang Survival, the athletes that make up the off-shore sailing crews of the Comanche and Rambler 88 provided feedback for the development of EP Ocean Racing Collection.
“With a dedicated and talented team of in-house designers, Mustang Survival is able to create products that meet and exceed the most demanding user’s expectations,” said Legatt.
Available now, the Mustang Survival EP Ocean Racing Collection includes outerwear, deck bags, gear haulers, dry bags, base layers, gloves and personal floatation devices. The new collection allows for integration of the brand’s thermal layers and outerwear with its flotation and protective equipment, providing a comprehensive range of solutions for offshore racers and demanding enthusiasts.
