What is the length of this vest?
Is it a USCG type iiiAsked on 9/2/2012 by dianne from Seal beach, CA
A:A life vest is either going to be a type 1 or type 2 but never a type 3 or 4. this is what a type 3 flotation aid is considered.
The USCG classifies flotation aids as Type III PFDs for use in areas where there is a chance for a fast rescue. A Type III PFD is not designed for prolonged survival in rough water. These jackets are designed for general boating or recreational activity, such as water skiing, designated on the device's label. These aids also are designed for people who are conscious and have fallen into an inland body of water.
The length is generally 18 inches unless it is indicated as a big and tall vest which would be 21 inches tall.Answered on 12/14/2012 by Justin M. from Overton's
