					Choose the appropriate parasailing life jacket

Parasailing is an activity that is both a sport and a fun recreation.
However, even if parasailing is done during calm weather, it is important
that safety is still the priority. The use of devices which are for
personal flotation or the use of life jackets should be a must for
everyone on the speed boat especially for the flyer.

The federal regulation code requires that these items be present on the
boat, besides the all important life jacket, backfire arresters, system
ventilation, a plaque that lists specific penalties related to pollution.

the law requires that life jackets be worn by kids in particular
activities. Life jackets that are the upgraded kind are also required
for children.
The following are basic steps in order to choose the appropriate
parasailing life jackets.

Choose those approved

As much as possible, use life jackets that have been approved by the
United States Coast Guard. This helps in ensuring your life jacket is
certified effective and extremely usable by you and anyone who will be on
a boat.


Does the parasailing life jacket fit?

A parasailing life jacket is effective if it fits the wearer perfectly.
Size shouldn't be a problem especially during times of emergency. To
make the life jacket easily wearable, size and weight of the life jacket
must appear on the label.

A good life jacket must snugly fit a person.   His head, chin and neck
must not be able to slip through.

The parasailing life jacket must be eye-catching

The reason for this isn't for vanity or style. The simple reason is that
a parasailing life jacket that is bright in color could be very easily
and conveniently spotted in case the wearer is in the water.

A helpful tip in wearing a parasailing life jacket is that it should
always be put on prior to being in the water. This is because it would
be very difficult to wear the parasailing life jacket once one is already
in water.

All in all, wearing parasailing life jackets is a must for anyone and
everyone who are on a boat, be adults or children. Take note and check
if the parasailing life jacket has holes or if they don't work
appropriately. Remember, the life you save could be your own.
