Ok I am gonna be completely honest; I usually find myself paddling places where most logical people would be afraid to stand very close to. That being said I don’t have a death wish I take safety very seriously. My Helmet and my Jacket are very important to me. I am not looking for style points here I need functionality. One of my most used PFDs is my Force 6 Rescuer Swiftwater. It provides attachments for all my critical safety gear, and provides the high visibility that is a must if you are in trouble on the water. I have not had to use this jacket in a threatening situation yet, but I am completely confident in the snug fit and design of this jacket. I trust this jacket and I highly recommend it.
