    Insulated Life Jackets

    Does anybody know where to get an insulated, long sleeved, USCG approved life jacket? I'm looking for one for my dad for xmas and can't seem to find it. I think i got mine from overton's about 7 years ago but don't see them in thier catalog. I've checked bass pro shops, dicks, rei,
    overtons, slippery when wet, cabellas, acadamy sports, NOTHING.

    I guess you could call it that. It's a foam filled coat, splash resistant, USCG approved, and it works. It floats you upright with your head up and arms out. My dad is 74 and has decided he wants to take the fishing boat out by himself. I would feel much better if he had one of these on.

    Look around, they also have some with collars as well as military versions (orange) and other options.

    Canada has their own version with their rating.

    mustang is always a good choice its warm it floats and you can spot it from planet mars if you fall overboard ,all jokes aside i have one yellow with red and used 2 times only but it was well worth those 2 times.
