Life jackets are a crucial addition to any sailing experience. In the past decade, there has been a rise in self-inflating life jackets, they are generally safer and provide more flotation than traditional foam life jackets.

We recommend this Automatic Life Jacket.

As the entry-level to the USCG Fusion 3D range, the Crew fit 35 Sport includes essential features that ensure the recreational user remains safe when out on the water including unique inflatable chin support which helps keep your airway clear of the water.

Its low-profile design will make you forget that you are even wearing a life jacket. Making it perfect for the owner to wear while fishing and sailing.
