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!

Comments about Astral Men's Ronny PFD:

This is an awesome PFD for those times when you really don't think you will need a PFD, but want to be safe anyway. It is lightweight, comfortable and is essentially designed with warm weather "booze cruise" in mind. You can fit two 12 oz beverages in the pockets if desired.
For rowing, the shoulder area gives plenty of room, and the back is nice and flat if sitting against a seat.
Best uses:
Deso-Gray in the summer
Grand Canyon summer in-between major rapids
Ruby Horsethief (but not Westwater)
Anytime you make the kids wear a PFD, but don't think you need one

It will certainly keep you bouyant, but is not designed to have massive amounts of flotation. It also is not strap heavy and could come off in bad water. Fabric is lightweight (by design) and may not be as robust as heavier stuff.

The lashing location seems poorly considered. I don't imagine ever having a knife at the end of a floppy pocket.

If you have a big water PFD, you likely need this one for the rest of the times on the water.
