    Default PFD preference for heavy use

    I need to buy a decent PFD that I'll keep on while handling oars. I'm curious as to what the guys on here prefer.

    So, what do you use?

    Would you recommend it?

    I keep going back to an America's Cup Ultra Float. It's big & bulky, but it's warm, it's like wearing body armor, and it provides nearly twice the flotation of the average PFD. It's hardly the pick of the average boater, but that's my point. -- Preference in PFDs is highly personal. You need to try on a couple dozen to figure out the one YOU like the best.
