Our Inshore Automatic Inflatable Life Jacket is designed for all-day, comfortable wear.
A reliable inflation system, durable construction and comfort all characterize this life jacket, which is designed to be a life jacket that inshore boaters will want to wear.
Intended for inshore use, this life jacket is designed to automatically inflate and supply 15.5 pounds of buoyancy when immersed in water. For inflation to occur, the dissolvable bobbin contained within the inflation mechanism must be completely immersed in water. Unintended inflation due to rain or humidity is not a problem. These versatile life jackets easily convert to manual inflation by pulling the attached T-cord.
You will want to visually inspect your life jacket for leaks or tears every few months and service the automatic inflator every two years. Rearm your life jacket with an Inflatable PFD Rearming Kit (sold separately).
Inflatable life jackets are designed to be lightweight and low profile offering maximum mobility. The Inshore’s design minimizes bulk so it fits well over your rash guard or offshore jacket and the wide neckline won’t hinder your movement. With its lightweight design and freedom of movement, you can wear this life jacket comfortably for extended periods of time without noticing it.
Constructed from 200-denier nylon Oxford material, the Inshore life jacket will endure years of wear in harsh conditions. Finally, reflective accents increase visibility in murky conditions.
