Product Overview

Our Inshore Automatic Inflatable Life Jacket offers all-day comfort and versatility for all your water life needs.

Comfort and convenience define this life jacket; with the features you need for inshore conditions, our automatically inflating life jacket gives you peace of mind on the water.

Automatic Inflatable

Our Inshore life jacket is designed to automatically inflate when immersed in water. The automatic inflator on this life jacket won’t prematurely inflate due to rain or humidity as the dissolvable bobbin the inflator relies on must be submerged in water first. However, you can easily inflate this life jacket manually by simply pulling on 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.

Includes CO2 Cartridge
