Life Jackets / PFDs
A must-have accessory for anyone on board your boat or watercraft, the life jacket or PFD (Personal Flotation Device) has saved countless lives since its creation. Although maybe not the prettiest of additions to your wardrobe, the PFD is often mandatory, so be sure to check your local guide for regionally specific regulations. They come in a range of colours, sizes, and buoyancy ratings to suit any activity, water type, or condition that you and the passengers onboard may face. Whether it's to keep you safe while speeding around on a wakeboard or tube or to help in the event of a capsize in your kayak, a life jacket is an absolute essential. As each State and Territory has different rules and regulations regarding the use of PFDs, make sure to check out what's required in your area before you hit the water.
