I wear this one from Liquid Force: ... ts/luxury/

I like that the floatation is all up in the chest and back and I barely notice it over my wetsuit.

Or PFD - No PFD?

I've worn an impact vest in the past but much prefer the twofold job of a PFD (Personal Flotation Device)

Been using a maui Magic one since day 1 but the zip is now regularly sticking with the salt/corrosion and the elastic of it's cumberbund is stretched. I've been looking at replacing it with the Neil Pryde Elite Bouyancy Aid. Seen here under the 'sailing' section of: ... y-aid.html

Or the Crewsaver Kite Bouyancy Aid seen at: ... y-Aid.html

Also all three mentioned are 'CE' approved. An important consideration in my books.
