This item is no longer available.

Good looking, people-friendly, and built for performance, West Marine's Coastal Automatic Life Jacket is comfortable and sized to fit a broad range of physiques. This life vest features a generous neckline with breathable 3-D mesh collar, and a longer slim fit shell designed to lay comfortably across your shoulders and chest. The mesh yoke back strap helps prevent the collar from riding up. When inflated, the yellow bladder exposes a high-visibility reflective strip. An easy-access storage pocket (ideal for keys, wallet or VHF radio) adds an element of convenience to this jacket’s stylish good looks. With an increased range of adjustment (30"-56" compared to 30"-52" of most other jackets) more people can now benefit from the safety and convenience offered by this PFD.

    Comments about West Marine Coastal Automatic Inflatable Life Jacket—Lime/Dark Gray:

    I bought two of these as a Christmas gift for my family- we have two similar and these were greatly discounted at the time so I took advantage of the sale. I really like these vest for sailing because they are light weight & easy to adjust. Fortunately we have never "needed" to use them. I highly recommend them for boaters who are looking to be safe and meet legal requirements. I would buy something different for water sports. They are not armed & I ordered new canisters before realizing they were tucked away on the side! Now I have backups!

        Comments about West Marine Coastal Automatic Inflatable Life Jacket—Lime/Dark Gray:

        Needed a quality but comfortable PFD for fishing on the Chesapeake in hot weatherwhen it's too hot for vests. This one on special brought the features and quality within the price I was willing to pay. Was exactly what I hoped for. After wearing it for the first half hour and getting used to it, I forgot it was there. No hinderance to jigging or casting. Just didn't get in the way even with the spare arming kit I bought tucked into the pocket on the side opposite the inflating mechanism. Since I wear PFDs consistently, will be great for the occasional charter walk-on fishing trip, reducing bulk and making it less socially obvious to others on board.
