Mustang Survival®, Inc. MSD901 Industrial Dry Suit
Things you should know
Application
The MSD901 industrial dry suit may be used in lieu of traditional dry suit
and anti-exposure work suits when a suit of greater durability, comfort and protection
from exposure to cold is required. The MSD901 provides inherent buoyancy as well as
protection from exposure to cold temperature, wind, sea spray and rain.
WARNING
For optimum performance, it is recommended that users wear polypropylene underwear
beneath the MSD901.
Configuration
The MSD901 provides hypothermia protection and inherent buoyancy using three
interconnected modules to form a single system. Each module can be repaired or
replaced individually. The first module incorporates Mustang’s patented breathable foam
(United States Patent No.5267519 and Canadian Patent No.2082793); it is a thermal
liner that functions as a second layer of protection and provides inherent buoyancy. The
second module is the immersion module and provides the suit with watertight integrity
and the equivalent protection of a dry suit. Constructed of a waterproof and breathable
(moisture vapor permeable) fabric GORE-TEX® BD6.5®, this module’s sleeve openings
maintain watertight integrity with neoprene seals. The immersion module’s (United
States Patent No.6,668,386 and Canadian Patent No.2,381,720) neck seal is constructed
of a waterproof, breathable polyurethane/polycarbonate-coated nylon stretch material
and is closed via an adjustable, elastic drawstring system that effectively seals water
outside the module and provides comfortable wear. Sock-type feet are integrated into
the legs. The third module is the outer shell urethane-coated nylon shell which provides
a durable water-resistant barrier to wind, sea spray and rain. This module is vented
allowing the suit to breathe. The knee and seat portions of the outer shell are reinforced.
An integral foam-lined hood provides protection both in and out of the water.

Maintenance And Care
1. General
After use and immersion in water (other than fresh clean water), the suit
modules should be either washed or rinsed separately. To increase the life of
the garment, it is recommended to wash the suit only when required. For spot
cleaning of the exterior when assembled, hand wash the suit in fresh water
(100˚F or less) using a mild powdered soap solution, then hang to air dry.
WARNING
Do not hang the suit by the neck seal. Use a wooden hanger and support the suit by
the outer shell, using the hanging loop located inside the outer shell neck area to secure
the suit while drying. Do not use bleach or other chlorine products. Do not use liquid
soaps or fabric softeners. Do not dry clean. Ensure all pockets are emptied and layers
have been separated.
Note: Unzip all interconnection zippers before laundering.

Inspection
General Suit Examination
Periodically examine your MSD901 for visual signs of abrasion or damage. Lay the suit
out on a clean, flat surface. Make sure that the suit is dry inside and out. Visually check
for small rips, tears, or punctures that can be repaired by a suitable repair station*. Major
rips, tears, or punctures should be referred to Mustang Survival for inspection and repair.
*Contact Mustang Survival Corp. for more information.
Inspection Intervals
The suit should be inspected:
a) On receipt from the supply depot or contractor.
b) Periodic inspections; depending on the environmental conditions of usage, not to
exceed 90 days unless in storage.
c) Before and after use by the individual issued the suit.
13
d) Whenever the integrity of the suit is in doubt.
Outer Shell
Inspect the outer shell over its entire surface area for cuts, tears and seam separations.
Any damage found should be repaired prior to further use.
Head Pillow
Check inflatable head support for damage and ensure that it is properly
attached. Check inflation hose(s) for deterioration or leaks. The head support/
buoyancy ring should be inflated and tested for leaks at least every three
months:
a) Inflate the bladder, then immerse it in water and check for bubbles. (Ensure that
the suit is completely dry inside and out before returning it to its bag.)
b) Inflate the bladder, let it stand for 8 hours and then check it for firmness.
Minor leaks can be repaired by a suitable repair station using aquaseal adhesive.
Major leaks should be evaluated and repaired by Mustang Survival.
Retro-reflective Tape
Check retro-reflective tape for condition and adhesion. Replace if necessary. For
best adhesion, repair should be completed by a suitable repair station or sent
back to Mustang Survival.
Immersion Module
Inspect the immersion module over its entire surface area for cuts, tears and seam tape
separations. Return the immersion module to Mustang Survival for repairs or replacement.
Zipper
Check for ease of zipper operation by sliding it up and down. Using lubricant
recommended by Mustang Survival (see page 13), lubricate the front and back of
the zipper and the slide fastener. If the zipper is not functional, the suit must be
removed from service and discarded or returned to Mustang Survival for repair.
Thermal Liner
Inspect the thermal liner over its entire surface area for cuts, tears and seam
separations. Any damage should be repaired prior to further use.
14
SUSPENDERS (MA7650)
Suspenders are not required when using the MSD901, unless sizing dictates. However,
properly attached suspenders may improve the fit and mobility. The MSD901 is equipped
with attachment loops, on the Immersion Module, that accommodate the suspender
system. Remove and re-attach as required.
Suspender Attachment Instructions
Required materials: MSD901 and two suspenders.
a) Completely unzip the MSD901 entry zipper (Fig. 18)
FIGURE 18
FIGURE 19
b) Open the suit so that the (front and back) attachment loops are accessible (Fig.
19).
c) Attach the end of the suspender, with the buckle, to the suit’s front attachment
point by unpeeling the Velcro flaps and lifting the Velcro strap that is folded on
itself. Fold the flaps over the strap (so that hook Velcro faces hook Velcro). Pass
the suspender through the attachment loop. The strap end can now be folded
over itself so the Velcro patches close. To secure the suspender, wrap the Velcro
flaps around the edges of the strap and attach to Velcro on the opposite side of
the strap (Fig. 20).
FIGURE 20
15
d) Pass the suspender strap through the front and back pass-through slots on the
Thermal Liner. While keeping the strap straight, attach the non-adjusting end of
a suspender to the suit’s back attachment point (Fig. 21). Should be similar to
Step c.
FIGURE 21
e) Repeat these steps to attach the other suspender. It is recommended to use two
suspenders for even support.
f) The suspenders may be attached so they are crossed over the user’s back.
g) Use the suspender strap ends to adjust for a secure comfortable fit.
FIGURE 22
TRIM TO FIT WRIST SEAL INSTRUCTIONS
Your suit comes equipped with universal-sized wrist seals that have a tapered sealing
surface at the end of the cuff. This tapered end allows you to modify the size of the
cuff opening to match the physical characteristics of your hand and wrist. Trimming the
end of the cuff increases the diameter of the end opening, allowing a larger wrist to be
inserted and sealed comfortably without damaging the cuff. Users with unusually boney
16
wrists should try to make the wrist seal fit properly further up the arm where the sealing
surface is smooth.
NOTE: Once the wrist seal is trimmed, it may not provide an adequate seal for a
smaller wrist.
Required materials: Ruler, sharp scissors and talcum powder. See below for trim to fit
wrist seal instructions for used suits.
Trim to Fit Instructions - New Suits
The trim table below details recommended “Trim Off” lengths relative to wrist size. To
ensure a watertight seal that provides safety, the fit should be slightly uncomfortable
without cutting off circulation to your hand. Don’t cut off more wrist seal than
recommended, otherwise the safety provided may be compromised.
a) Use a tailor’s measuring tape or some other means (string) to determine each
wrist circumference (measure just above the wrist joint towards the elbow). Left
and right wrist sizes may vary. Measure again to confirm (Fig. 23).

b) Refer to the trim table above and determine the recommended “Trim Off”
amount. (Eg: a wrist size of 7” requires approximately 1/2” be trimmed from the
cuff end).
c) If wrist circumference is 6” or less, try on the cuff “as is” to gauge the comfort
and seal provided. Continue with trimming only if required.
d) If trimming is required, mark a circular line around the cuff that is offset from the
original cuff end by the recommended “Trim Off” amount (Fig. 24).
e) Using sharp scissors, or a razor, carefully cut the cuff end at the marked line.
Evaluate the fit and comfort after each cut. Apply talcum powder to your hand
and wrist to make donning the cuff much easier. Don the sleeve by pointing the
fingers straight, tucking the thumb underneath and inserting the hand through
the seal. Do not make a fist when putting your wrist through the seal. Forcing
the wrist through a cuff that is too small may tear the cuff end open (Fig. 25).
f) If further trimming is required, shorten the cuff end 1/8” at a time until the
optimum balance of fit and comfort is achieved. It is not recommended to
exceed the original cut by more than 1/2”.
g) To maximize the protection provided by the wrist seals, try to minimize flexing of
the hand-wrist-arm muscles when in the water.
Trim to Fit Instructions - Used Suits
The condition of a used suit may not be obvious, so carefully don each of the wrist
seals prior to trimming. To ensure a watertight seal that provides safety, the fit should
be slightly uncomfortable without cutting off circulation to your hand. Don’t cut off
more than the required amount, otherwise the safety provided by the wrist seal may be
compromised. Perform the following steps to trim the wrist seals of a used MSD901.
a) Apply talcum powder to your hand and wrist to make donning the cuff much
easier.
b) Don the sleeve by pointing the fingers straight, tucking the thumb underneath
and inserting the hand through the seal. Do not make a fist when putting your
wrist through the seal. Forcing the wrist through a cuff that is too small may tear
the cuff end open.
c) If further trimming is required, shorten the cuff end 1/8” at a time until the
optimum balance of fit and comfort is achieved.
To maximize the protection provided by the wrist seals, try to minimize flexing of the
hand-wrist-arm muscles when in the water.
