been overboard twice both times in summer
1st time Musto gear and lifejacket and helmet
very cold in water lifejacket hindered swimming and climbing aboard very cold almost hypothermic on return trip from wind chill
2nd flotation suit no life jacket
flotation suit worked great upper body stayed dry, could swim back to boat,
could climb back aboard, stayed reasonably comfortable on remainder of trip
I always wear one even on hot days

never miss an opportunity
