Life Jackets / Personal Flotation Devices
On your boat, life jackets, inflatable life vests, and personal flotation devices (PFDs) are the most important pieces of equipment. Wholesale Marine carries an extensive stock of jackets and PFDs for every member of the family-dog included! Select from Onyx, O’Brien, HO Sports, Connelly, Hyperlite, and Texas Recreation. We proudly carry the right-sized vests at very competitive prices.
While regulations vary state by state, the United States Coast Guard has a requirement that there be an appropriately-sized life jacket for everyone on board and recommends that they be worn at all times. Wholesale Marine has the whole boat crew covered with high-performance life jackets, inflatable life vests, and personal flotation devices (PFDs) for men, women, teens, youth, children, infants, and dogs.
If your job requires commercial life jackets, float coat or work suits, shop at Wholesale Marine for your best selection at guaranteed low prices. While onboard storage should be a consideration, do not compromise your safety. We also carry inflatable life vests in various styles, sizes, and colors. We haven’t forgotten about the fisherman or kayaker. Find a great selection of fishing and paddling life vests, too that are designed to offer you safe flotation while not interfering with your range of motion.
Life Jacket Maintenance
It is recommended that every jacket be tested for buoyancy at least once a year. Jackets that have become waterlogged, leaky or even faded, should be replaced. Be sure to check if your children have outgrown their life jackets before the start of the boating season. Also, remember that worn life jackets are the best ones to use, so make sure that they are comfortable. Quality life vests can be the best investment you can make as a boater. If you have any questions about life jackets, contact 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.
