Personal Flotation Devices

Canoeing.com Definition: Inherently buoyant Personal Flotation Devices with internal foam or other materials provide flotation without inflation. Lightweight, vest-style PFDs with short waists are non-constricting and most comfortable for paddling. US Coast Guard Type III certified PFDs, provide a minimum of 15.6 lbs of flotation and are best for recreational canoeing. For some whitewater paddlers, Type V – or special use – PFDs are appropriate but must be used according to label instructions.
