Pickey Dave (
) and Kerny have raised a topic that I have been thinking about. Life jacket cost V Life jacket Quality.
As I see it, once you have checked the boxes for usage and fit, they're all ISO or EN rated life jackets and should do their job (which is to float you face up etc).
It's Hazard and Risk.
The Hazard is falling in.
The Risk is drowning.
Wearing ANY LJ reduces the risk.
Wearing any 150N Auto reduces a very great deal of the risk.
Will wearing a £300 150N jacket reduce it further? - a bit perhaps, but I suspect very little...
