LIFE JACKETS at OOTDOORS
Scotland’s leading online outdoors store.
A personal flotation device (abbreviated as PFD; also referred to as a lifejacket, life preserver, life belt, Mae West, life vest, life saver, cork jacket, buoyancy aid or flotation suit) is a piece of equipment designed to assist a wearer to keep afloat in water. The wearer may be either conscious or unconscious. PFDs are available in different sizes to accommodate variations in body weight. Designs differ depending on wearing convenience and level of protection. The simplest and least buoyant type of PFD comes in the form of nylon-lined foam vests, used predominantly in water sports such as kayaking, canoeing and dinghy sailing. Buoyancy aids are designed to allow freedom of movement while providing a user with the necessary buoyancy. They are also designed for minimal maintenance and as they are only constructed from foam and can be mass-produced inexpensively, making them one of the most common forms of PFDs.
We stock a wide range of life jackets to compliment our waters ports range. They are suitable for pretty much every person, large or small – we even have life jackets for dogs as well! Life jackets are designed for keeping you afloat for long periods of time, but also to keep your head out of the water if the wearer is incapacitated.
