Life Jackets / Personal Flotation Devices
After your boat itself, life jackets, inflatable life vests, and personal flotation devices (PFDs) are the most important pieces of equipment recreational boaters should have on board. Wholesale Marine carries an extensive selection of jackets and PFDs for every family member, including the dog! Choose from Onyx, O’Brien, HO Sports, Connelly, Hyperlite, and Texas Recreation. You’ll always find the right-sized vests at very competitive prices.
While some regulations vary by state, the United States Coast Guard requires that there be an appropriately-sized life jacket for everyone on board and recommends that these be worn at all times. Luckily, Wholesale Marine has your entire boating party covered with quality life jackets, inflatable life vests, and personal flotation devices (PFDs) for men, women, teens, youth, children, infants, and dogs.
When your job requires a commercial life jacket, float coat or work suit, come to Wholesale Marine for your best selection at very competitive prices. When onboard storage is a consideration, do not compromise your safety and go without- we also carry inflatable life vests in a range of styles, sizes, and colors. We haven’t forgotten fishermen or kayakers either; we also carry a great selection of fishing and paddling life vests, too!
Care and Maintenance of Life Jackets
Every life jacket should be tested for buoyancy at least once a year. Any jacket that has become waterlogged or leaky, even faded, should be replaced. Check to see if your children have outgrown their life jacket, as well. Remember that the best life jackets are the ones that are worn, so make sure yours are comfortable. It is one of the best investments you’ll ever make. If you have any questions about life jackets, call our customer service representatives for guidance. We’re here Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM EST at (877) 388-2628.
