There's better out there I'm sure but I'm not spending $200 on a life jacket. If I do, my wife will test its' durability out as soon as I turn my back on her in the boat. But, for $79, it might be worth a shot.
I have five inflatables. Love them. I wear one all the time when I am alone - or when running rough water with passengers.
The older models go off randomly after a few years (salt capsule gets weak?). The replacement kits are stupid expensive. Grrr...
But CHEAP INSURANCE if you ask me. If comfort and low bulk is keeping you from wearing one now then BUY ONE!!! Overboard alone while fishing is a nightmare scenario - especially if you donk your head, you're in cold water or if your boat's still moving (trolling).
