Inflatable camouflage life jacket

It is very important that you get in the habit of wearing a PFD while fishing or hunting, especially in smaller boats and those with low gunwales. One simple mistake without a PFD on could ruin a good day of fishing, not to mention ruin your life. Try out an inflatable PFD to maximize comfort. And don't forget to wear your engine cut-off switch lanyard whenever the motor is running!
