Less Bulk in Rough Conditions
This is my second SeaO2 (the first was destroyed in a fire) and I thought long and hard about shelling out $200 again. But there is no other PFD out there with this amount of flotation; period. I paddle some rough waters and prefer a PFD with less bulk but if I come out I would rather have lots of flotation. The SeaO2 provides the combination of both. If I'm going to be dragged by the tide out the Straits of Juan de Fuca I want to be at least floating on top. I keep my VHF in the big pocket and my GPS in the mesh pocket. This is spendy but worth it.
