Wonderful and comfortable vest
My husband and I are recreational kayakers. We spend quite a bit of time kayaking on the Hudson River. The only thing that would put a damper on our excursions was my being so uncomfortable with my floatation vest. Over the years, I continued to look at floatation vests and could never find one that would not have the same problems as the one I had. As I finally had enough of my current vest, I did more research on the Float Tech vest. It sounded like it was exactly what I needed. My kayaking days are now filled with being extremely comfortable. The Float Tech Auto Inflatable Vest has given me the freedom that I had been looking for.

Best inflatable on the market
This vest is by far the most comfortable one out there. It's not a horsecollar so you don't feel like you have one around your neck. In addition, I have the vest/outerwear combo, and the jacket looks and feels great even with the PFD vest zipped into it. Lastly, the dissolvable disc technology makes re-charging easier and cheaper than the hydrostatic inflatables out there.
ProsComfortable, non-cumbersome, and easy to reload.

Great for Kayaking and Canoe Enthusiasts
I've had The Float-Tech Inflatable Life Vest for a couple of years now, and love the emphasis the company has put on comfort and mobility. I'm a larger guy by most standards so finding a vest that would not ride up or irritate my neckline was key. I couldn't be happier when I a friend suggested that I try The Float-Tech Inflatable Life Vest. I was blown away by what I received in the mail. The vest lays on my shoulders, not on my neck like a lot of previous versions I had given a shot. Like one of the users mentioned above I'm able to spend hours on the water and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing anything but my tee shirt. Great product!

Weightless Peace of Mind
I recently took part in a creek clean up by kayak. I wore the Float Tech Life Vest for 3 hours and was comfortable the entire time. It is lightweight, yet has the safety features I want while out on the water. I love that it isn't bulky and can be inflated only if need be. I hardly knew I was wearing a safety vest.
ProsLightweight, safety features, comfort.
ConsNone in my opinion.
