The padded adjustable shoulder straps, adjustable side straps and adjustable waist strap allow you to keep tweaking until this PFD to fits you perfectly.

PFDs and Safety:
A PFD will help you float in the water, but it cannot guarantee your safety and ultimate rescue. You should take into account the following points:
- PFDs are manufactured in a range of sizes to suit people of different body mass and build. Ensure that your PFD is a good fit and does not rid up in the water.
- The effectiveness of a PFD is considerable reduced in rough or breaking seas and surf. In the event of swamping or capsize remain with your craft as this will be more easily found by rescue services.
- The effects of submersion in cold water for extended periods (hypothermia) can be fatal. Wear a wetsuit or a woolen jumper next to the skin to help insulate the body. Adopting a foetal position reduces the loss of heat through arms and legs.
- Wear your PFD at all times.
