    Where to Buy LifeJackets

    I'm picking up my first Yamaha FZS this weekend and was wondering if their is a good place online to order life jackets for myself and wife. I know I can get them at the dealership, but figured I might save some cash online.

    Any suggestions?

    Make sure you buy PFD that fit well, and are comfortable to wear.

    This is hard to do online, unless you already know what brand and size you like.

    Shop around and try them on, as the different brands do fit differently, and there is more to PFD than just the size rating. Fit is important.

    You want it to fit well enough that it will not ride up when you are actually in the water, yet be comfortable enough that you can actually wear it while riding.

    When test fitting, try sitting down, bending over, and moving your arms as if you were swimming. Try pulling upward on it, it should not just slide up.

    Look for more than two-three straps and buckles, which will help resist coming apart if you hit the water at speed.

    Color can be a factor. Black tends to get hot, and dark colors can be harder to see when you are in the water.
