Whitewater Review of Mustang Survival’s Hudson Dry Suit with Video

-

- Advertisment -

Mustang Survival has been keeping the hero’s of the U.S. Coast Guard, Navy SEALs and NASA astronauts dry since 1967.

The Canada based company is now making gear for us mere mortals, the paddling public and PL got our hands on the Hudson dry suit. Our SUP specialist Ricky Steamboat has over thirty days putting the Hudson deep into holes and surfing waves. Here is his full product review.

 

Ricky Steamboat: “Today, we’re looking at the Mustang Survival Hudson dry suit rocking the latex today because we’re going in some whitewater.  This is an expedition fit. So it’s gonna be a little roomier. I think just how you get this thing in and on and off. They had to make a little extra fabric. Once you get your PFD on though, no problems. You can go right to the boat or to the surf wave. You got one suit to do it all.

Started using the Mustang Survival Hudson latex dry suit a solid 30 days, watching the flow come up & down in the water a lot as you can see from some of the vids and it’s been keeping me dry. Sometimes I just go right from work wearing business attire. And sometimes I get some long underwear. We only have about 43 water temp right now. So a couple of layers.”

This thing is awesome.

“Durability has been great. Like we talked about, this 3-layer Marinespec BP fabric, it’s been great. Definitely with the on the reinforced foot, knee, and bottom protection. Still been wearing shoes, you know, you gotta watch out with the rocks and stuff. The feet are typically where dry suits tend to fail first. But yeah, I’ve been super happy with waterproof zippers. One thing I do like to is this pull tab right here, let you open this up really well and it cuts down on some of the stretch.”

“Getting in and out of the Mustang survival dry suit takes a little trial and error. Like I said, the expedition fits is real roomy, which allows you to layer things. The opening here is a little tight, for you to get your head through. It’s just trying to find out what works for you with this zipper configuration. You’ve got to get in and out a little differently than some of those other dry suits with zippers around the back for another different places.”

Ready for the next adventure?
