Since this type of jacket is very expensive, I had them replace my salt tablet. However, I went aboard the boat one day to find the jacket had blown itself up, and the air had leaked out. This led to my search for a new jacket.
This PFD has what is called a hydrostatic trigger. It was the most reasonably priced of the life jackets I found. It seems to be relatively comfortable around the neck in hot weather. (My last one was awful on a hot day, and this type of PFD is only useful if one wears it at all times on deck.) It comes in other colors, but the hot pink will show up on the water if I fall in. It will take another season for me to know for sure how I like it because I bought it at the end of the season.
