thats a good thing to do, some people just don't realized how bad it can get if they end up in the water without a life jacket, it's like life insurance, best investment you can make in this sport.life jackets are a must for me and my family.
if you are with me on the water you are wearing a jacket
they make lighter thinner ones now that aren't as bad looking
they even make ones that are black if you wanted it to not look too bright (which is the whole point btw)
good thing to do, just imagine what you would have to do if it did end up disappearing, ultimate way to ruin a dayits true, but for me i know I'm a capable swimmer, and i always wear an igniiton tether so if i do fall off my rig isn't disappearing on me and leaving me stranded..
