How To Select the Best Life Jacket

This video will explain how to choose a life jacket depending on what type of watersport you are participating in. ... read more



Video Transcript

Rob Nelson: Hey, it’s Rob Nelson here with boat-ed.com. Now did you know that there are a lot of different life jackets you can choose depending on where you’re going? If you’re going out to sea, if you’re near shore, if you’re skiing. I mean, all kinds of different ones. We made a little video to show all the different types of lifejackets and their intended use, check it out.

Female: Life jacket, intended use.

Rob Nelson: There are different types of personal floatation devices, what most call life jackets. They are all designed for specific uses. So refer to the label and match it to your activity. And if you are ever in doubt go to the US Coast Guard’s website to double check.

Now, let’s go through the main types you’ll see out in the water. Off-shore, for use in rough, remote waters. This off-shore life jacket is super buoyant and keeps your face out of the water. If you’re boating in remote areas where rescue may take a while, it’s best to use this type.

Near-shore, this near-shore vest will turn most people face up in the water but it’s not a guarantee so it’s best used when rescue is quick.

Inflatable, some inflatables are designed to inflate on contact with water or when the user pulls the cord. This should be used for near-shore pleasure boating, fishing, and some paddle sports. They come in two different styles; either as a normal vest or as a waist pack.

Wearable flotation aid, for use in water sports like skiing or wakeboarding where rescue would be quick. This wearable lifejacket works in calm waters but depending on their design, might not turn your face up if a person is unconscious. We also have special-use vests. These special-use flotation devices are designed for specific activities like wind-surfing or white water boating or rafting. Throwable device, intended use? Thrown to someone in trouble. Throwable floatation devices are throwable cushions or rings. Depending on the size of your boat, you’re also supposed to have at least one of these on board.

And this? Seriously, no, just no.

Now if you like that little clip then you’re probably going to want to see the whole video which you can see at boat-ed.com. It’s a site where you can get certified in boat safety. And of course, leave your comments, we’d love to hear from you and we’ll see you next time.
