What to Look For In Your Life Jacket
Coast Guard Approved
Who better to trust than THE authority on water safety?
Fits Properly (Appropriately-Sized)
Right-size your gear for maximum safety and performance.
In Good Repair (In Serviceable Condition)
Don’t trust your life to a PFD that’s outlived its own.
Be sure to choose the right PFD for your pursuit.
All the research, planning, Coast Guard-approvals, and stylish design looks cool in the world won’t help you if your PFD doesn’t fit right. Other than actually wearing your life jacket, the correct fit is the best insurance for safety on the water. Use our size guide to find your fit.
Appropriate PFDs are the most important piece of equipment you can take on the water. According to the BoatUS Foundation, you must have a properly fitting life jacket for each person on a recreational vessel. Life jackets must be USCG-approved, in serviceable condition, and appropriately sized. And obviously, life jackets are most effective when worn. Check here to learn more about your state's laws.
