saves lives 83% of drowning victims in recreational boating accidents were not wearing a life jacket.

Texas law requires a life jacket for every person on board. Don't add to the statistics.

If you use the inflatable ones, you ARE required to wear them.

Actually, if you use an inflatable and dont have a regular one in the boat or a throwable you have to wear the inflatable one at all times motor running or not. It is a 300 dollar ticket if you dont have it on and get caught.

I wear mine all the time i am in the boat and you never know you have it on
I tried mine out once it works great. some people on here said their inflatable
life jacket went off in a rain storm . that is a bunch of poop If it went off in a rain
storm it is because they were not wearing them and the life jacket was lying in
the boat . the jackets are made where the water has to come up from the bottom
to melt the pill that tigers the air tube to inflate the jacket. Many people have worn
them in a heavy down pour and their life jackets never go off. I have had mine several
years and only goes off if the pill is expired or if i am under water never in a rain.
