Vest Style Personal Floatation Devices For Females

Most vest style personal floatation devices that are available in the market are suitable for both men and women. But sometimes, the vests fit very tightly in the chest area. This causes discomfort in females. Some vests come with adjustable straps so that this problem can be eliminated, but it is not the case with other jackets.

Therefore, there are certain vest style personal floatation devices that are specifically tailored to keeping female bodies in mind. These are easily available in places where one can expect to find other PFDs.
