WEST MARINE
Coastal Automatic Inflatable Life Jacket—Royal Blue/Dark Gray

$149.99

Model # 14832075 | Mfg # WM-SL1F-14-BLU
In stock online.

Good looking, people-friendly, and built for performance, this life jacket is comfortable and sized to fit a broad range of physiques. Features include 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 vest’s stylish good looks. With an increased range of adjustment (30"-56" compared to 30"-52" of most other vests) more people can now benefit from the safety and convenience offered by this PFD.

This product seems to have a lot of nice features- 2 inch belt, d-rings. The instructions say to check the bobbin and replace every 3 years. I received my pfd, checked the bobbin and it expires in less than 6 months.

            Nowhere in the advertisement does it state that it does not come with an inflation cartridge. This is deceptive advertising. It costs an additional $23 dollars for a rearming kit,which by its name implies it is replacing the original arming kit that came with the device. Very disappointed that I need to pay more money and make an additional trip back to the store so that I can use this product.

                  I was a bit concerned when first putting this on at home that it felt a bit bulkier than expected. However, I became well safisfied after putting it on for an entire weekend of boating and realizing that I didn't even notice it after the first five minutes.
