The Coast Guard has recently announced its approval of the SOSpenders Automatic PFD as a Type III personal flotation device. This means anglers can replace their bulky, foam lifejackets with self-inflating vests and be CG-legal. In a man-overboard situation the replaceable CO2 cartridge automatically inflates the vest to 35 lbs. of buoyancy. The vest can also be manually or orally inflated. SOSpenders feature a durable outer shell and an integral layer of foam to ensure pre-inflation flotation. They come with an adjustable waist belt and a spare CO2 cartridge. Price is $110 for the Sport model, $150 for the World Class Pro model. Sporting Lives, Inc., Fruitland, ID; (208) 452-5780.
