                Comments about Inshore Automatic/Manual Inflatable Life Vest:

                I haven't had occasion to use it and, frankly, hope I never do. That said, I think it's lightweight and relative comfort will encourage me to actually use it while underway — especially in that I often singlehand my Catalina 27.

                    Haven't used them yet or deployed them yet. Looks like a good design and lightweight. I'm an engineer and I found it a little hard to figure out the auto/manual deployment system.

                      Great fit, easy to adjust and use at a great price! I only purchased one, but, now that I have seen the quality and ease of use, I'll probably purchase another one this season!
