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.

    • Very uncool. Happens to me quite a bit. They see me hooked up and move into my spot and cast over my line.
