There is a difference between a life jacket and a PFD (personal flotation device). Quite often people will say Life-Jacket, when what they mean is PFD. Most camps use/require PFDs, as opposed to Life Jackets. A PFD is designed for constant wear where comfort and flotation are the critical issues. A PFD will float you, but not self-right you (turn you over in the water). A life jacket will turn you face up in the water, but the foam filled varieties are bulky and less comfortable to wear. Typically, life jackets are horseshoe shaped in design and slip over your head with all of the flotation in the front of your body up around your neck.
Personal Floatation Devices care, maintenance and guidelines.
Always store your boating equipment and garments in a dry and well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight, and be sure to avoid stowage in areas that are prone to high humidity or significant temperature fluctuations. Products should be examined each year or whenever there is reason to question the safety provided. Review the product using the following garment condition indicators:
Buoyancy - Test the product in a controlled in-water situation. Ensure an observer is monitoring and that the test is conducted in a calm water environment. A well-functioning personal flotation device’s (PFD) buoyancy should keep your head safely out of the water. Foam Liners - Check shoulder and sleeve areas for separation or slippage Seams - Inspect seams to ensure they are not separating, tearing or fraying Zippers - Movement should be easy and have good overall condition. Fasteners - Snaps, buckles and Tug-Tites® should all be in good working order Improper Storage - Mold or mildew should not be present and storage in a compressed state or near heat may indicate damage UV Damage – Indicated by significant discoloration or bleaching that weakens the exposed materials
