i agree with polwart they also offer a bit of protection unlike the inflatable stole types that can get holed or torn or even wear out on the fold creases,,and you dont have to keep checking to see if the cylinder is still screwed in or servicable,,,on my hard fishing boat i use the auto/stole type if i am fishing /pulling pots as they are not as bulky , but in my sib i use the air/foam ones,that dont take all that much room up i even at times fish wearing one ,,if i am wading about on a rocky beach or i drop off the end of the slip when recovering the boat ,,theres ample bouyancy with just the inherantfoam ,i can inflate by mouth to make it more bouyant if needed but never ever had to ,it just get a hose down and hung up to dry after use ,,,whichever you decide upon main thing is it fits proper and has a crutch strap.
