Q:The child pfd's specify the weight of the child, as in 30 - 60 lbs, or 50 - 90 lbs.
Does this pfd have a suggested weight range?
It is easy to find pfd's for children but not for teens, because the pfd's only give suggested weight ranges for children.Asked on 3/23/2015 by Doug from Calgary, AB, Canada
A:Doug, adult PFDs aren't certified by weight ranges. Sizing is done by chest circumference. Type III PFDs, which are the most common recreational types, have to have a minimum of 15.5 pounds of buoyancy. The majority of adults only need 7-12 pounds of flotation to keep their heads above water. The Crew PFD has 16.5 pounds of flotation.
