Do you love early season boating and fishing, but you are not a fan of bulky life vests? Maybe you want a little bit of extra protection while you’re ice fishing or trapping on the water? Well, this fantastic invention brings a whole new meaning to the term life “jacket”!
The Onyx Type III Flotation Jacket, in particular, is a heavy-duty jacket that has a built-in personal flotation device that is Coast Guard approved! According to sportsmansguide.com, these jackets provide better hypothermia protection than a traditional life vest and are comfortable for all-day wear.
The coolest thing about these is that a lot of people don’t wear life jackets while they are boating, but they have life jackets in the boat. With a flotation jacket, you are protected as long as you’re wearing your jacket!
The price tag on this particular PFD jacket is somewhere around $100.00. I am pretty sure I will be adding one of these to my hunting/trapping/fishing wardrobe collection.
