What is a Mustang Suit?

The Arctic Ocean is a very harsh environment. Survival in the water is only minutes without proper protection. The mustang suit is a thermal survival suit for just this type of place. On the Healy, team members are required to have them on when they are sampling on deck or out on the ice.

Here is a photo of Jonathan Wynn, Paul Knorr, and Lisa Robbins with mustang suits on for first day briefings.
