Fishing life jackets are equipped with various features to suit different types of needs.
These specific life jackets usually have pockets for tool storage, center hooks, soft velcro fasteners for flies and hooks for pliers and multifunction tools.
You can also find other functional features such as rugged zippers, reflexes and mesh pockets.
In addition, some of the life jackets also have a built-in so-called “sprayhood”, which protects your face from splashing of water in stormy weather. Thereby ensuring that the waistcoat supports your weight and that the waistband can be tightened properly.
If you choose an inflatable life jacket, be sure to check that the gas cartridge is properly screwed.
Otherwise, there is a risk that the life jacket will not blow up when an accident occurs.
When selecting a life vest for fishing, the same guidelines apply as for a standard life vest.
In addition, you can choose your fishing life jacket based entirely on your personal needs and wishes.
