    Comments about Type I Offshore Life Jacket:

    With the life jacket closed properly, there is a maximum girth measurement. You should tell the shoppers this. Our little girl of age 10 is skinny. Her breasts are small. She weighs 80 lbs.
    We could not close the clasp. The floatation rectangles were not aligned. Too small for her. We are going with the adult size though this might be too big. There isn't a medium size on the market. As a commercial type 1, they should have that size.

      Comments about Type I Offshore Life Jacket:

      Safety is very important when crossing the bar...fishing off shore,whether one mile or ten. It's not good enough to just be legal, to be safe in all conditions is of utmost importance. These type 1 PFD 's do the job well. The price is awesome.extremely affordable.
