Great low priced PFD for most Whitewater

This PFD looks great and does the job for most whitewater. I have purposely jumped out of the raft many times in Big Kahuna and Lunch Counter and am under for a few seconds but come right back up most of the time. I have had a couple times where I was under for around 8 seconds (a long time in whitewater) when the undercurrent catches me and holds me under. I had to swim back to the top instead of float back to the top like most of the time. Like I said. This works great for most whitewater, but if you are going to be getting into some pretty nasty stuff I would suggest spending some more money and getting a higher end PFD.
