Q:what is the difference in l,ll,or lll. Level life jacket?Asked on 6/30/2009 by Anonymous
A:Type I - Provides the most buoyancy. It is effective for all waters, It is designed to turn most unconscious wearers in the water to a face-up position.
Type II - Intended for calm, inland water or where there is a good chance of quick rescue. Inherent buoyant PFDs of this type will turn some unconscious wearers to a face-up position in the water, but the turning is not as pronounced as a Type I.
Type III - Good for conscious users in calm, inland water, or where there is a good chance of quick rescue. It is designed so wearers can place themselves in a face-up position in the water. The wearer may have to tilt their head back to avoid turning face-down in the water. The Type III foam vest has the same minimum buoyancy as a Type II PFD. It is the most comfortable type for continuous wear. Float coats, fishing vests, and vests designed with features suitable for various sports activities are examples of this type PFD.Answered on 8/19/2010 by Rollinalong from Portsmouth, va
