Mustang is the only manufacture making cdn approved floatation suits. Salus and helly Hansen no longer makes a 1 price float suits.  For non approved nothing beats a Striker.












I Have Icerider made by Mustang
( and it is top of the line) and the sticker inside clearly says it is not currently Transport Canada or US Coast Guard approved.

Otherwise I think it is one of the best and comfortable suit out there for riding snowmobile and ATV on the Ice.

I have MUSTANG MC5445 Catalyst Flotation Coat/Suit (Model Number: MC5445), and the label inside does say "Approved by Transport Canada."

Maybe it's approved because it's a one piece Flotation Suit?

It's approved because the manufacturer went through and passed the certification process with this model.


Just because it's not approved doesn't mean it floats any worse, just that they didn't go through the certification.

No, The one I have (MUSTANG Catalyst Flotation Coat, shown above: Model/Style: MC5445) is just the top. No pants.
