Picking the best life jacket can be difficult. The options are many and are described in technical language for a layperson to understand. The life jacket you choose must suit your fishing activities and the type of water. Choosing the wrong one can frustrate you and prevent you from enjoying your fishing. A wrong or ill-fitting life jacket might not offer enough protection during your fishing trip. Here are two few things to look at when picking a life jacket.
Different life jackets are suitable for various fishing areas. Before you pick a life jacket, you must know where you will use it. Whether you are rafting, fishing, kayaking, or canoeing, there is a guide on which life jacket will suite which activity. However, some jackets can be used for multiple water activities and different fishing areas. Be sure to ask the dealer to ensure you get the best life vest.
Design And Fitting
Life vests for adults, youth, children, toddlers, infants, and dogs are all designed differently. They come with accessories that are user-specific. This is why toddlers cannot wear adult life jackets, and dogs cannot wear human life jackets. Toddler life jackets and dog life jackets may also have special safety features for kids and dogs, respectively.
How To Fit A Life Jacket
A life vest should fit well, and you should wear it every time you are fishing. If it is too big, it will ride up around the face of the wearer. If it is too small, it will not keep the body afloat. When fitting, choose a jacket based on chest size for adults, and weight for children. Before putting it on, loosen all straps then tighten them after putting it on. To tighten it up, start from the waist belt going up to the shoulder straps. After that, try pulling it up from the shoulder straps, and if it pulls up around the head, it is too big. Try a smaller size and repeat the process until you get a life vest that fits well.
