How to choose the perfect Life Jacket for your Sea-Doo ride?

When it comes to safety and comfort for your Sea-Doo adventures, nothing is as important as selecting the right personal flotation device (or PFD). It’s the only piece of riding gear that’s legally required every time you ride, making finding the right fit and style paramount to living your best Sea-Doo life. Here’s a quick guide to finding the perfect personal flotation device for every Sea-Doo.

What style of PFD is best for my riding style?

The type of Sea-Doo product you have and how you ride your Sea-Doo has a lot to say about the style of personal flotation device that might suit your needs. A high-octane performance PWC rider might choose a style that maximizes airflow, while a long-distance adventure rider or fishing enthusiast might want something with a bit more storage. The family that’s wakeboarding and tubing around the lake may want something that adjusts for multiple sizes and offers great freedom of movement. Let’s outline some of the personal flotation device offerings available from Sea-Doo for various riding styles.
