    I have the same one. Used it twice and didn't even know it was on.

    My boat, my rules. You WILL wear a PFD or, you will NOT ride in my boat. If you don't have one, I will provide one.

    I don't want to be the one to call your family and tell them you are not coming back.

    Purchasing a good inflatable pfd is a solid plan. Yeah it cost $90 and up. That's nothing for the amount we spend in gas, tackle, rod & reels etc. During extreme hot weather, you're less tempted to remove it as there's not much to them. Wear mine every outing when by myself. Whatever you choose... PLEASE do yourself & loved ones a solid and WEAR ONE! During the summer months you have drunk fun boaters everywhere! In the Winter the cold water can literally paralyze you. I've had close calls that could've went wrong in a split second. Can't fish anymore when you're dead!

    Best advice I've heard about life vests is get the one you'll wear. If they're uncomfortable, folks just don't wear them. Get one that fits well, doesn't get in your way, and you forget you have on. Some are better than others, but I can't think of a drowning where someone was wearing a life jacket fishing a California lake or river.

    Rafting, out in the ocean maybe different, but bottom line, any commercially available, Coast Guard Approved life vest will do the job, so long as it's on. The best in the world won't help if its sitting on the bottom of the boat.

    Very sorry to hear the news. A tragedy for a lot of people. Wishing the families peace and strength.

    Cabela's Deluxe Thin-Back PFD by Stohlquist




      • Thin back is ideal for sitting in seats with high backs
      • Ventilated interior and shoulder pads increase airflow
      • Cross-chest cinch secures the PFD in place
      • Nylon-ripstop shell and 200-denier nylon lining ensure durability

    Designed for comfortable all-day wear, the USCG-approved Cabelas Gray Deluxe Thin-Back PFD by Stohlquist eliminates the excess back thickness you find on most PFDs, and is ideal for sitting in seats with high backs. Ventilated interior and shoulder pads increase air flow. Cross-chest cinch secures the PFD in place, eliminating ride-up. Ripstop-nylon shell and 200-denier nylon lining ensure lasting durability. Storage options include multiple zippered pockets, neoprene stash pockets, zippered front pockets with internal organization, handwarmer pockets, and multiple tool attachment points.
    Thank You that looks perfect !!!! Tightlines BF
