Greg writes for several outdoor companies and publications in the U.S. and abroad, and is a member of the Native Watercraft Pro Staff and Bull Bay Rods Professional Team. Greg enjoys getting his eleven-year-old son Robert out fishing in salt water from his kayak, and together they volunteer with the Tampa Bay Chapter of Heroes on the Water and Operation Helping Hand at the James A Haley VA Hospital.

With no provision for carrying a VHF radio this PFD is not suited for use in the ocean or large lakes. The Kokatat SeaO2 is a much better design, providing 7.5 lbs. of floatation before it is inflated and 22.5 lbs. with the bladder full of air. The SeaO2 has a VHF radio pocket and the bladder can be inflated orally or with a CO2 cartridge.
