Burnaby, BC – Mustang Survival®, the Canadian brand known for innovative solutions for the most demanding marine environments, is excited to announce that it will supply equipment for extreme offshore activities of the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team, as it challenges for the 36th Americas Cup.
This project highlights the strong bond between heritage and innovation on both sides. Mustang Survival has been providing confidence to sailors for over 50 years and continues to push the boundaries on innovation in the Maritime environment.

The Mustang foul weather apparel, developed and built at its Burnaby Waterlife Studio, will include the EP 6.5 Ocean Racing Jacket, Smock, Salopette & Drysuit, all of which made from military grade GORE-TEX®
“Mustang Survival provides guaranteed protection against the elements at 50 knots, ensuring each one of us can focus on doing our job to the best of our ability day after day” said team member Shannon Falcone. “With over 40 team members on the water when supporting the AC75 training sessions, maximizing the collective efficiency means we can focus on our goal of winning the America’s Cup. I look forward to taking on this challenge together!”
