        canoeing-portaging trip, recreational boating, kyaking.
        great flotation, feel safe in the water as a nonswimmer.
        may be a little bulkier than a type 2 or 3, but the peace of mind overcame that in my case.

          Comments about Overton's Type I Offshore Commercial PFD, Adult:

          When you and your family are traveling in the ocean by boat, do you really want to trust that $12.99 life jacket? I purchased 4 of these for our local ocean going boating trips.

          When I received these at home I tried one on. You feel like this is a life jacket that will save your life if you ever get into a situation.. A small price to pay...

              A:

              Type I life jackets are rated at 22lbs of bouyancy, and Type II & III life jackets are rated at 15lbs of bouyancy. Please do not confuse this rating with the weight that someone must be to use the life jacket.
