idk man that looks sketchy as f didn't look like they inflated that well!!!
The first one you showed was a Buoyancy aid not a life jack a life jacket is one where if your unconscious it will keep your face out the water by putting you on your back
Good info ......I use a manual type .....kayak fishing . Good rule if it ain’t comfortable you won’t wear it ...
Do they make for fat people?
Remember at high speeds if you bounced out I’m not so sure the inflatable models wouldn’t get ripped off. Or cause harm to your neck
The gas cylinders have a chance of malfunctioning.. its a known problem. If they don't work.. then you drown. Go check out a hobie kayaker use one of these and it didn't go off and he near drowned.. Was lucky that he had a friend to help him but without that friend, he would have probably died. Keep safe on the water.. Check out sea kayaking level 50 type 2 pfd's.. Allot of fishing kayakers I know wear them offshore and the offshore fishing comps I been to they will not allow people to use the gas pfd's in the comp because they know how risky they can be.
can I use the manual one for kayaking and swimming? I need a 150n because I have risk of losing consciousness but I want it suitable for swimming too, and I cant decide which one to get
H Xo Yes you can. The buoyancy bladder won’t inflate unless you pull the cord.
In regards to the automatic, what happens if it rains really heavy?
Some lifejackets WILL inflate under rain or splash from another boat passing by. There are those that will only inflate under pressure of water - about 4" below surface of water. Google the specs of the jacket to find out which you have. And weigh the canister (33g) to see if it has not deflated- new does not mean perfect.
It works by pressure of a gauge being submerged
It has to be under water to a specific depth before it activates to prevent accidental automatic inflation.
Not too many of these companies give a shit about us fat people! :(
One note of caution: Self inflating life jackets SHOULD NEVER BE USED if a capsize could result in a person being trapped under or inside the craft.I know of at least two fatalities (in the UK) resulting from the above. Jacket inflated, trapped them against the craft & they drowned before they could deflate & swim out.
Won't that happen with a regular lifejacket as well?
So do i have to buy a new cylinder Everytime i go fishing
Wendy Brown if you plan on being in the water loads don’t by a inflatable life jacket buy a Buoyancy aid these are the type dingy sailers use
Well yes if you are planning on falling in the water every time you go fishing.
@Wendy Brown, you will only need to purchase a rearming kit when the life jacket inflates. The design and intention of inflatable life jackets allow them to be worn uninflated until flotation is needed. Should you find yourself in a circumstance where flotation is needed, the life jackets will inflate if properly armed, and the inflation handle is pulled. Some inflatable life jackets offer automatic inflation upon immersion in water. Please feel free to e-mail us with any specific questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
@OnyxOutdoor so you are saying that i have to pay $20. Everyday i am on the water of my tournament for a new cylinder?
The CO2 cylinders can be used for many years if properly cared for. Once the inflatable life jacket inflates, you will need a new rearming kit. We recommend inspecting the CO2 cylinders and inflation mechanism before going boating or fishing to ensure the life jacket is properly armed each time.
The video says to store in a cool dry place. Why can’t I keep it with my boat?
Exposure to humidity and high heat can break down the material in the water soluble bobbins on the automatic inflatable life jackets. Keeping inflatable life jackets stored in boat lockers and compartments increases the chances of premature and/or unintentional inflation.
Veri Veri cam hur
Who else is high as fuck
co2 it is meant to keep you afloat and NOT a method to get high
So the am24 is manual only?? I thought the bobin in the am24 made it an automatic? Am i wrong here?
Carl, The A/M-24 can be converted from Automatic to Manual Only mode. Check out that model specific video here: ru-clip.net/video/Wy6aEZxJsnA/video.html&t=
