        Comments about Offshore Automatic Inflatable Life Vest with Harness:

        I purchased an Auto offshore 35 auto inflate PFD about a year ago. I was new to the C02 inflate pfd but like the concept. And was attracted to the intergrated harness. I am a bowman on a J145 and a few weeks back we had a great day of sailing with 22 knts of wind sustained and gusts to 30 knts. There was plenty of hiking to be done! water on deck and head sail changes to be made!

        I always check to PFD is showing green at the start of each day and look it over at the end. So on this occasion I looked at the end of the day and it was showing red! I first thought it was time to change the disk but on further investigation the plastic ring that retains the flag had broken off and the c02 cylinder had rotated so it was just floating in the pocket. Had the pin auto engaged or been manually pulled the vest would not have inflated. Honestly it spooked me. I have come close to being sucked off a boat and with the cold water and amount of other fowlweather gear I was wearing, it could have been a bad result going in.
