An inflatable life jacket gives you the ability to stay safe and enjoy the water without a lot of bulk. These vests are lightweight and comfortable to wear. Consider whether you’d like a vest that automatically inflates or one that you will need to blow up yourself. Most with the automatic inflation feature also include a manual back-up valve. The vest should be slimline and allow for a great deal of flexibility. An inflatable life vest can be a good tool for snorkeling. Some allow you to adjust the air levels to accommodate smaller or larger people.
