Inflatable Life Vests

In many applications, an inflatable life vest, sometimes referred to as an inflatable PFD, can be an excellent alternative to a conventional life vest. An inflatable life vest is easier to wear for activities that require a lot of movement such as sailing, fishing, and commercial marine applications. Depending on preference and activity, you can choose a manually inflatable life vest, an automatic inflatable life vest, or a belt pack inflatable PFD. Shop Savvyboater.com for wide selection, top brands, and great value.

Choosing the right inflatable life vest

We have all heard over and over the many reason why people don’t want to wear life jackets. Everything from: they are too bulky and uncomfortable; they are ugly; they are too hot to wear; and they get in the way of activities. An inflatable life vest, often referred to as an inflatable or an inflatable PFD, is an excellent alternative to traditional foam life jackets.

An inflatable life vest gives you excellent protection in case the unexpected happens, and are now available in U.S. Coast Guard approved Types III and V. An inflatable life vest is comfortable and lightweight to wear, even in hot weather, stylish, and with a flexible, low profile they won’t get in the way of your favorite water activity – whether its fishing, boating, paddling, or sailing.
