          Comments about Type I Offshore Life Jackets:

          I needed some better jackets for the offshore conditions I encounter, although hopefully I will never have to use them in a real emergency! These jackets go on sale at least once a year from WM, so take advantage of this 40% off sale. My only gripe is the metal clip for the strap is not stainless and WILL rust.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The jackets arrived on time and packaged well.

            I purchased type 1 life vest for offshore fishing.I have nearshore vest and inflatable vest but I feel more secure when I go offshore fishing with a quality vest designed for extended time in the water. I hope I never have need to test it.

              Comments about Type I Offshore Life Jackets:

              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.

                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.
