Type I PFD

This PFD is designed for extended survival in rough, open water. It usually will turn an unconscious person face up and has over 22 pounds of buoyancy. This is the best PFD to keep you afloat in remote regions where rescue may take awhile. They can be very bulky and uncomfortable compared to other types of PFDs and also cost more.
