Life Jackets for Paddling, Fishing & Boating

One of the cardinal rules of water sports is to enjoy your pastime safely, which is why a life jacket is so important. Also known as a Personal Flotation Device (PFD), a life jacket is the most important piece of safety equipment when using a kayak or canoe. Beginners should focus on several points when selecting this piece of equipment.

  • Approved as a Personal Floatation Device Ensure that any life jacket has been authorized for use as a Personal Floatation device by Underwriters Laboratories or a similarly approved testing facility authorized by the US Coast Guard.
  • Adequate Floatation Make sure that you select a life jacket with adequate buoyancy for the person that will depend on it.
  • Proper Sizing Life jackets should provide a snug fit while allowing a range of movement.
