The MTI Fluid Belt Pack 2.0 Life Jacket - PFD is lightweight and comfortable belt carried PFD. Perfect for Paddle boarding, fishing or any other water sport where freedom of movement is important. The ultimate choice for SUP paddlers! So compact, you'll almost forget you're wearing it. Yet pull the cord and whoosh, the CO2 cartridge immediately activates and a life jacket bursts out of the pouch. Just put it on over your head, it is tethered to the belt pack around your waist so it won't float away. The 3D mesh padding is soft and quick-drying to prevent chaffing. There is a zippered storage pocket for chapstick, sunscreen, or a snack. Waist belt adjusts from 30 inches to 52 inches.

This MTI Fluid Inflatable Belt Pack is all it advertises to be ... no I haven't inflated it yet and hope not to need to. The ACK people had the best price and a timely delivery. The wide belt is a plus. I find the thickness and stiffness to be a little much but it is to be expected for a full life jacket of this type yet within a waist worn style. Quality of materials is excellent. If I sit and fish it must be in the front of me as it is "supposed" to always be. If I don't do this it'll be a large bump keeping me away from the back of my seat. When I'm reeling my line in it gets in the way of my natural placement of my rod and hands. When I stand to fish I twist the waist worn life preserver around to by back and it is then no problem at all for my fishing or bending....BUT it must then again be twisted around to my front before sitting down. I guess a minor inconvenience for the sake of safety. It's easy to adjust and the large buckle is very strong and easy to handle. I do also have an auto inflate suspender style inflatable and they both have their place and both go on my fishing outings on my Twin Troller X10. Good product and worth the money.
Best waist belt PFD. Easy to wear.
