Life vests are a key item you need when tubing or jet skiing. As enthusiasts of personal watercraft sports, we are very devoted to safety! Like wetsuits, Jet Pilot life vests need to fit correctly. You should choose a USCG approved life vest and the correct size for the weight of the person who will be wearing the life vest. A simple test you can do to see if the Jet Pilot life vest is the appropriate fit or not is to lift your arms above your head. In this position, the chest portion of the jacket should not touch your chin when you look to either side.
It is very important to always wear a life vest while partaking in watersports; many states require wearing a life jacket for water skiing and other towed activities and the Coast Guard recommends it. Not only does a jetski vest protect you if you should ever fall into the water, but it also keeps you visible to other people. A good jetski vest will ensure that you will be able to breathe above water in case you are in ever in trouble.
