I fish, I know how much us anglers hate to wear a bulky, uncomfortable, hot and sweaty life jacket. I know, I get it. I also know there are lots of life jacket options available now and you can put one of the inflatables on at the beginning of a day on the water, leave it on all day, and forget that you even have it on. Let me remind you that statistics show that by far most boating fatalities were NOT wearing life jackets.

I have often said this, will say it again. . . . I know all about you “tough guys” and how you think you do not need to wear a life jacket. OK, whatever. Put it on for your family, for your wife and kids, for those who love you.
