Life Jackets

Life jackets, also known as personal flotation devices (PFDs), are marine life-saving equipment designed to assist a wearer in staying afloat in water. They are typically constructed from buoyant materials such as foam or inflatable sections that provide the necessary lift to keep the user’s head above water. Life jackets come in various types and sizes to accommodate different water activities and body weights. Essential for boating, kayaking, and other water sports, life jackets are crucial in preventing drowning by providing flotation, even if the wearer is unconscious or unable to swim. They often feature bright colors and reflective materials for visibility, as well as straps and buckles for secure fitting. Wearing a life jacket significantly enhances safety and is mandated by law in many regions for certain water activities.
