Inflatable PFD Advice Needed
I recently bought a float tube and am getting ready to fish some coldwater high elevation lakes. I also fish a few big rivers with high flows for steelhead and salmon. Up until now I've not used a PFD while wading and tubing but I have been in a few hairy wading situations and I don't want to get stuck with a long swim in a cold lake without floatation so I'm looking at inflatables. I'm looking at Stearns, Mustang, and Suspenders. I don't see this topic discussed very often so I'd like to solicit your opinions on the options.
Auto inflatable is out of the question for wading so I'm looking at manual ripchords.
Thanks in advance.
