Would you wear one of these by choice? Ha! We didn't think so! These are the life jackets we stock our RC boats with for governmental compliance. If your PRO decides conditions warrant everyone on RC put on their life jackets, we surely hope you remembered to bring yours. Otherwise...well you get the gist.
