How To: Fit a Life Jacket (2:21)

Choosing a life jacket, or personal flotation device (PFD), that fits well for all-day wearing comfort is one of the most important water safety decisions you make. In this video we show you how to tighten the straps to ensure the jacket won't ride up when you're in the water. When deciding on a life jacket, wear it around the shop for a while to be sure it's all-day comfortable. Then, be sure to always wear it when you're on the water!

    Q:

    Is this life jacket U.S. Coast Guard-approved?

      A:

      Yes, it is a Type III PFD, USCG approved floatation device. Type III means
      that it will not turn a person face up in the water if they are
      unconscious. Type III PFD's are comfortable and mostly used by boaters
      where you can expect swift rescue. They will not turn an unconscious
      person over on their back. I bought this for my son to paddle in.

        Comments about NRS Vista PFD - Youth:

        We bought 2 of these for our 7 and 9 year old kids. There's a big size difference between them but the pfd adjusts to fit them both well. Lots of swim testing: no riding up, good floatation. Much better than the 'department store' brands they had previously.

          Comments about NRS Vista PFD - Youth:

          As my kids grow and get into tougher water, it's nice to have a better PFD than the cheapo models that are so abundant. Having better flotation for them is great, but for smaller kids, the foam is a bit thick and can restrict movement a bit. all in all, great vest.

          Service and delivery comments:

          NRS service and delivery is always top notch.

            My daughter was ecstatic to receive this as a birthday gift when she turned 8. The color selection was perfect and I think this lifejacket will be perfect for her to accomodate the next 4-5 years of rafting with our family. Thank you NRS for continuing to provide quality rafting products and creatively come up with new ones. We are long time loyal customers and will continue to be so.

              Comments about NRS Vista PFD - Youth:

              Upgraded from a cheap-O PFD so my 8yr old can hit some more challenging water in his IK. Fits him well, easy to adjust, and the pockets are a plus.

              Service and delivery comments:

              NRS is always the best about service and delivery.
