Default Re: Inflatable PFD Advice Needed

Hi Frank,

Thanks for the input. Have you experienced an inflation situation with the pfd under your vest as described? I ask because as I picture the scene, I have a couple of concerns.

As it inflates and I'm on my back, the vest is forced open like it's being taken off. Arms go to the side and I'm wondering if it (1) ends up at the bottom of the lake with all my gear, or (2) hangs up aound my forearms inhibiting movement.

In a safety situation, I know I shouldn't be worried about my gear as much but... Maybe I'm over complicating things.
