Float coats are a practical and comfortable way to remain safe (and warm) while on the water. They are designed as a personal flotation device while doubling as a jacket. Float coats are ideal when fishing, paddling or renting a boat during the colder months. And they have pockets! These make great gifts for those who enjoy boating during the colder months.
Children’s Life Jacket
Prioritizing the safety of children around the water is crucial. Children should always wear life jackets when near the water. The U.S. Coast Guard requires all children under the age of 13 to wear a life jacket at all times. If you anticipate spending time around the water, purchasing a child life jacket is a great way to be proactive and prepared!

For all boaters who enjoy being safe without the bulk of a traditional life jacket, an inflatable life jacket is an excellent item! It provides comfort when wearing a life jacket all day.
