How can I maintain the life jackets I own?


You should remember that the materials that life jackets are made out of are synthetic and nylon and can be harmed over time by sun radiation. So you must keep them in the shadow, and even better in a room or a garage. Also you should keep them in a dry place since water can also damage your life jackets over time.

How do I know that the life jacket fits?


First, make sure that you are trying a lifejacket that fits your weight and height. The best way to test it is to work in a pair. Hold your hands straight above your head and have someone else pull up the tops of the arm openings. If the jacket covers your face or chin, it is too large.

Can children wear adults life jacket?


No. It is very important that life jackets will properly fit the person that wears it. Life Jacket first and main purpose is to keep your head and shoulder above water. If the jacket is loose the floatation will push the jacket around the face and if it's too small it will not float.

Are there any life jacket rules? Do I have to have jackets on my boat?


As US coast guard website specifically mentions: All recreational boats must carry one wearable lifejacket (Type I, II, III or Type V lifejacket) for each person aboard. A Type V lifejacket provides performance of either a Type I, II, or III lifejacket (as marked on its label) and must be used according to the label requirements. Any boat 16ft and longer (except canoes and kayaks) must also carry one throwable lifejacket (Type IV lifejacket).
