Life jackets are essential safety equipment for any water activity. They are designed to keep you afloat and help you stay safe in the water. There are several different types of life jackets available, each with specific features and purposes. Here are the most common types of life jackets:
Offshore Life Jacket: This is the most buoyant type of life jacket and is designed for use in open, rough, or remote waters, where rescue may take longer. It can turn an unconscious person face-up and has a minimum buoyancy of 22 pounds.
Near-Shore Buoyant Vest: This type of life jacket is designed for use in calm, inland waters or where there is a good chance of quick rescue. It has a minimum buoyancy of 15.5 pounds and is less bulky than a Type I jacket.
Flotation Aid: This type of life jacket is designed for use in calm, inland waters or where there is a good chance of quick rescue. It is designed for activities like water skiing, fishing, and kayaking and has a minimum buoyancy of 15.5 pounds.
