    Great flotation with a slim profile—don't get stuck on the lifelines!

    Posted by dzneyvee on Jun 22nd 2016

    I used to sail with the Stohlquist Betsea PFD, and while that one is USCG approved, it's way too bulky. I got the Zhik one because I wanted something I could move around in on the big boat and on the skiff. And I can say the flotation is more than adequate. I'm not a fantastic swimmer, but I've been in the water plenty with this PFD and felt totally comfortable. The profile is so much slimmer, so no longer do I get stuck on the lifelines. I got the neon green for safety on the dinghy, but since I wear it under a rash guard the point is moot. The neon gets pretty dirty quickly so I'll probably go with a darker color if I ever have to replace it, although I don't see that day coming any time soon!
