I will never forget reading the posts about that day. From that day out, my team is never on the boat without an inflatable vest. And like others have said, look around, not for the best price, but for the best fit. I have even gotten into the truck with mine on, after shooting all night. talk about an odd feeling, but it was nice to know that they are comfortable enough to forget you have it on. No one is allowed on the boat without a lifejacket!!
