When you select a personal flotation device, the most important consideration should be the size and approved for your weight range. There are different types of PFD's; the first has the most flotation in 22 pounds of buoyancy, kept unconscious people in the head, but is quite bulky. Type 2 has less buoyancy and can keep people in the head, but again it is bulky and uncomfortable. The type 3 is what is wore by people that do ski, it doesn't keep unconscious people in the head, but it is the most comfortable and can be worn at all times to count.
