A personal flotation device — or PFD — can save your life only if you’re wearing it. While it’s legal for adults to be in a boat without wearing a PFD, that doesn’t mean it’s smart.
Fact: It doesn’t matter whether you’re a good swimmer if you’re knocked unconscious during a fall from a boat. The good news is you won’t even realize you’re wearing the Cabela’s Essential 2500 Auto PFD. It is unmatched for comfort and freedom of movement.
This lightweight PFD has a slim fit, so it won’t get in your way paddling or casting. It has a 60 percent higher than the minimum buoyancy rating for Type III foam vests; it inflates to 26-lb. buoyancy, which means it provides enough flotation for persons weighing up to 275 pounds.
This PFD meets U.S. Coast Guard specifications.
- Upgraded with flex points for freedom of movement
- USCG-approved Type-V PFD with Type-III performance
- Colors:black with red accents (shown); black with pink accents
