Quick in a pinch.
Rather than waste all of your dry-land practice to perfect your dry-fly casting by putting on a bulky traditional PFD, pull on the Mustang Survival M.I.T. 100 Auto Activation Inflatable PFD. This PFD is shockingly slim, but it does have a few requirements: you know how to swim, you must be older than 16, and you aren't engaged in high-speed, high-impact water activities (this includes gator-grappling and whitewater 'yakking).
Different from traditional (and bulky) life jackets, inflatable PFDs rely entirely on inflation for buoyancy. While you're paddling around a placid lake to find the paradigm of angling, the M.I.T. 100 Auto stands at the ready in case the granddaddy of the lake, a lurking largemouth bass that taunts you year after year, actually takes the bait and you with it. Once you hit the water, a spring-loaded pin gets activated, pierces the CO2 cylinder, and the vest inflates. In case of mechanical or human error, you can huff and puff and blow your vest up. The inflation tube rests within the left front panel. If you're in the water for a prolonged period of time, you may need to top off the inflation yourself.
Back on dry land, deflate the vest and head for home. Back at the ranch, lay the PFD flat to dry and then store it, loosely folded, in a dry and cool place. Once your M.I.T. 100 is flat and dry, you may re-arm it with a new CO2 cylinder kit (that includes the water-soluble bobbin). Unlike putting together a bookshelf you picked up at a discount retailer, regularly testing or re-arming your PFD necessitates a thorough read of the included instruction manual. Why leave your life to chance when the how-to book comes with this low-profile, highly buoyant PFD?
